Fish Tale Nos. 4 & 5

Fish Tale Issues 4 & 5!!!

I am going to make art!
(Especially static images placed in deliberate narrative sequence)

I am going to save the princess!
(Unless she doesn't need saving)

I am going to be tall!
(Like a tree)

But small also.
(Like a shrub)

Money is not the objective, but it would be nice to live on art! This superhero business doesn't pay...

TV on the Radio's great short...

Fish Tale!

Four pages from me sketchbook... Fish Tale 1 & 2...

Drawn on friday evening at Kew Gardens once again in the summer sun, surrounded by trees, with long grass between my toes...

Oh, on the fish subject... this film (Fish Story) was flipping fun and wonderfully absurd... Can Punk save the world?!

More Comicy Comic

Well, the words aren't final...

Looking back at the blog, it has become all aboot this comic recently... I guess it's just my way to keep up le momentum or whatever, but think ill post some differing and dithering stuff again soon. Ho humm.

Just re-read Haunted by Philippe Dupuy for about the 17th time (ah ha!). Everything in the book is perfect; but the art is exquisite! and t'was for the most part drawings from his sketchbook, not intended for publication. C'est Magnifique!

Violent Femmes- Prove My Love.

Oh also!!! Tommorrow doodledaydream reaches its 100th Issue!!! Gasp!!!

Just Another Wee Doodle

Heres another page for the comic... I'm at just over sixteen now, and its been three weeks, so it has some momentum... Onwards and upwards etc!

Folks comment on my blog when I post depressive monologues... Ah ha... Mayhap I should stop taking antidepressants?!

Just kidding, anyhow my moods are purely self-indulgent funks, which usually pass after a few days.... Still, thanks... Your nice comments make me feel like a bastion of aspiration, with like mad crazy superpowers et al!

Art In Me Heart!

Please forgive my last whiney grumpy frumpy post!

Abe bounced back again, The princess is lovely, its sunny, and I can be a hero... My guitar has a nice ring to it, my pencils are sharp, and there's ink in my pen!

Got Art In My Heart.

Heres another page from the comic, stayed up last night colouring five pages... I know, I know, I should draw em' all first and colour later... But I'm in love with the finished items, and seeing as how t'is all going to be a larger story composed of small stories, not such a bad thing... ho humm
