It’s taken forever but Becky and I have 2 new webcomics for you!
www.FuzzyOutlaws.com has just launched as a sci-fi adventure staring a rabbit and a robot in space. Updates Tuesdays and Thursdays
www.DuckAndRabbit.net also launched this week describing the complicated relationship between a duck and a rabbit. Updates 5 days a week!
Be sure to check them both out.
Two blog posts in one day! Crazy ol’ world.
I recently bought the 3 week subscription to the Dynamic Sketching Workshop at
I would like to take the 6 week class but there are about 8 classes I want to take and at $600 per class, I will have to save my pennies first.
ANYWAY. Here are two quick images I drew after watching the workshop. I just used my camera phone to snap the shots. They are drawn using ink pigment liners, a 40% warm grey felt and a while gel pen. It’s tricky because you can’t erase anything and if you’ve ever seen me draw, you know I abuse my erasers.
I watched Jurassic Park while drawing that first one. It’s of course a Dilophosaurus. That’s the spitting one in the movie (they didn’t spit in real life. Artistic license, you know)
A Maple Leaf! I’m in Canada after all. Becky actually inspired this one. We walked to the Farmers Market yesterday during the most stereotypically autumn day I’ve ever experienced and bought maple flavored almonds. Maple is just about her favorite flavor ever. Normally I wouldn’t put so much texture in an image like this but it was also an experiment in texturing.
Well, I’m going back to sketching. I have some short one-off comics in my head I’d like to write which I think will end up in the comic feed eventually.
As most of you have noticed, there hasn’t been a new comic for a while. Fact is, Becky and I are too busy to keep updating the comic every day. Most of my drawings now are technical practice and not stick figures. I love the Stick Dinosaurs but I’m not sure how to continue it and develop my art skills at the same time.
So for the mean time, the site is on hiatus. I’m going to start updating the blog more often so keep checking back for that.
August 21, 2013 Mike and I shared our 2 year anniversary.
I wrote this poem for him last year and wanted to share it on here for our lovely Stick Dinosaur fans.
The brightness in your eyes
Cast a light which never ends
Before our love was realized
We started out as friends
With friendship, came the courtship
Which then turned into love
The rain that once poured down on us
Has stopped from up above
Our dreams have seemed to come alive
Our fears have turned to dust
Holding you, I feel at home
For in your arms I trust
My heart has captured all of it
My eyes have froze in time
Fixated on the one I love
Blessed to call you mine
Our darkened rain has faded now
And in it’s place leaves light
A brightness only we can see
And there’s no end in sight
My love for you has strengthened me
And with our love brings light
For in each other, we found a future
On those lovely summer nights
He’s my everything. I love him more and more each day and I can’t imagine my life without him.
Everyday, he tells me I’m beautiful. Everyday he makes me feel special. And everyday, he shows me how much he loves me. A love like that is so rare and I’m beyond blessed to have him in my life.
We have found our happy place, in one another.
I love him.
Always have. Always will.
