And now for something completely different- caricatures.
I really only dabble with them but I do enjoy doing them-especially when they turn out well.

A completely impractical machine.

Hockey cards.

This is a piece inspired by a love of old hockey cards and the simple innocence of loving the game as a kid.

It is a work in progress but my idea is to create "facsimilie" versions of "classic" hockey cards from a small, western Canadian hockey league. I am still trying to solve a couple of conceptual issues but I am quite excited by what I have done so far.

It is done completely in Illustrator (+pen and ink)

Osgoode Hall is the provincial court house here in Toronto and actually being in court to watch the "theatre" is an interesting way to spend a morning.
Here is a page from being there on Wednesday. Unfortunately, I only got the one page done as the court adjourned, what seemed, shortly after I got there. But it was funny because I thought that I was being pretty inconspicuous, just sort of blending in to the background. But two of the attorneys made a comment as everyone was walking out after the adjournment that I was the "picture drawer". I said that I was and they asked if they could see what I had done. I guess you should never underestimate how peoples attention will be drawn, pardon the pun, to a drawing.

This is a piece that has been in the works for a long time. I had the idea almost a whole year ago and drew in up and then thought, "I should do this some day". And with having the time this week I finally got around to doing it.

Last drawing before the break! Then to do some real work. This is a drawing from my digital art class.

Here is a drawing that I did yesterday at school. The class that I had was completely unfocused and rather then waste my breath yellin' at them I just let them fool around. The time will come when they have to "pay the piper".

A break from art and hockey to post a couple of images of James playing basketball for his school's team. Both karen and I were pleased that he decided to try out, and make, the team. We both think that playing lots of differnet sports is only going to make you better at all sports.

The season consisted of a one day tournament where they played three games. They lost all three but James enjoyed it enough that he wants to play next year. And that, ultimately, is the main thing.
