Watching Movies, Making Art, Raising Money for Charity

Wednesday, 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!

The time has come.

For the dedicated fan, there is a limited number of deluxe packages available that include all five volumes of Carl’s Story, as well as some commemorative books: one which featured at Toronto Comic Con 2010, another is an unreleased first draft edition of Shadow Play, and finally there’s a collection of sketches and works in progress related to the series.

Are you wondering what this story is all about? Fair question. I’m putting together short videos featuring each volume so you have a general idea of what you’re getting into. To see the first video highlighting the entire series, click on the link below. New videos will be uploaded in the coming days.

I’ll also be setting up some fun opportunities for you to come out and pick up your copies in person. I’ll post more information on dates and locations in the coming days.

It’s been a long road for myself and Carl, and we appreciate you being here for the final leg of the journey.

New Graphic Story

Tuesday, 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.
