Watching Movies, Making Art, Raising Money for Charity

April 22nd, 2020


A group of us have been watching movies every night since the pandemic lockdown began. We all press play on the same movie at the same time, and start an online thread of live commentary as we watch together, from afar. The playlist so far, and coming up, can be found HERE

As an added contribution, I decided to draw some sketches based on whatever movie we were watching, starting and finishing with the respective movie. Sometimes I’d get a few sketches done, sometimes just one, and sometimes I’d do watercolours, if I was feeling ambitious.

As the artwork started to pile up, we decided to try and do some good with it and auction off pieces to raise money for charities and organizations impact by the challenging time we find ourselves in.  Click HERE to see how much money has been raised so far.

Below is an index of the movies I’ve sketched or painted along to. Click on the movie to see the finished piece, and if available – where to bid on it!

New Graphic Story

April 3rd, 2012

I have a brand new graphic story that’s available through limited release. I’m not selling it, and unfortunately you can’t order it. How do you get your hands on it, you ask?  Well, you have to get it off me personally. I’m giving away copies on a first come first serve basis, and I’m not messing around with mailing or setting up drop-offs. Basically, you find me, you get one. Simple as that.
