Changing blogs


Hello all.
For those still with me I have started a new blog called Daily Jast.
My goal is to do a drawing a day for the entire year. Most will be very quick sketches, nice and loose.
Some will be almost diary based. 
Anyways, please stop by and enjoy your Daily Jast.







Happy Halloween






A few new ones

Sticky notes



A day to make good use of sticky notes.




Some early studies from a favourite Disney film of mine...The Great Mouse Detective.

Cool puppets




From a fellow by the name of Craig Denston. Have a look at some more of his work HERE

Little Rascals then and now



Do you think you could pitch a show like this nowadays? Kids running around a big town getting into all sorts of mischief, parents nowhere to be found. Building their own fun. I remember this one episode where they were firemen. They took over a loft over some wharehouse, built themselves a fire engine out of boxes and old bicycle wheels, and actually went off to fight a fire.

Or how bout this episode...

Teacher's Pet

It's the first day of school and the gang isn't ready for readin', writin' or their new teacher Miss Crabtree. Jackie, Chubby and Farina decide to "welcome" her with gifts of sneezing powder, red andts and a mouse.

If a kid tried this today you'd have the HAZMAT and Health and safety squad at your school in no time. Now I am in no way encouraging this sort of behavior, I'm just pointing out how interesting it is that as time goes on things seem to get a bit more sterile. Even when I was a kid things were different. I have the scars to prove it. Yes I tried to build a go cart out of old scaps of wood. Yes it had nails sticking out the front of it like spikes ment to rip apart my friends go cart. Yes they were rusty nails. And yes I have an inch and a half scar on my left hand where the rusty saw blade cut into it. Nothing a little Hydrogen peroxide and mecurecrome couldn't handle.

I don't know if I'd want my kids doing the same thing. Probably not. I want them to grow up safe and with as little pain as possible. What parent wouldn't? However I still let my kids climb trees. Just have to watch for those slivers. Besides, it sure beats the alternative...


Happy New Year


Happy New Year to everyone out there.

Looking back on 2008 feels like I dreamt the whole year. Not that anything unusual or exciting happened. It's just that it felt like I sort of slept through it, sort of Rip Van Winkle style. I can't really explain it much more than that.

I seem to have awoken somewhere near the begining of December by dusting off this old blog and have started to post again. I hope to continue this trend in 2009 and to stay "awake" as long as possible.

I'm disappointed in my progress in regards to that secret project I started a year ago almost to this date. But I'm happy in my progress with my online comic strip/journey which I call "Ink".

"Ink" is a strip I've created which will have no regularity as far as posting goes. I have no idea where it's going. You can expect the format to change from time to time.

The only thing that I can expect of myself is that it continue moving forward, along a path, curiosity being the driving force. I have created a seperate blog for "Ink", the link for which is located on the right side of this blog. Please feel free to visit.

I hope this coming year is kind to everyone and that a year from now we'll look back and have plenty to reflect upon.

Happy New Year!







The Happy Life of Thom Glum



My friend Jason Reeves has gone and written and illustrated a great childrens book called 'The Happy Life of Thom Glum".

Self published through Lulu's Press the description of the book is as follows...

"With the help of a very small friend a glum man named Thom finds happiness through giving."

Very well done and certainly worth a look.

Mr.Reeves has many good ideas which I hope follow in Thom Glums footsteps.

You can order the book HERE.













A pattern?!?




More Ink


Two in a row? What's the world coming to?



Now what indeed...



When I was a kid there was usually a Saturday morning ritual. Get up as early as possible creep downstairs get a bowl of Frosted flakes ( or the cheaper alternative...Corn Flakes with massive amounts of sugar) and turn on the tv to watch 6 hours of cartoons straight.
The good cartoons usually started around 7AM. For some strange reason now forgotten by me, but since realized by my own children, I would get up at 6Am. Sometimes 5.
Now there were only two things on the television at that hour.
Professor Kitzel.
And Tales from the Wizard of Oz. (Often followed by The New Adventures of Pinnochio).
I've done many a search to find clips from this series but have always come up empty.

Until now.

Thank you You Tube.

It's been a while since I've posted a link to anything inspirational. So, without further ado check out Julia Rothman's blog on inspirational books called "Book by it's cover".
