Thanks for the wonderful time. I did lots of sketches, met lots of people and it went by so fast.
As promised, I’ll have some of my Star Wars ‘How to Draw’ tutorials up soon, and a new Yoda one. Right now I’m finishing off the commissions that I took late on Sunday.
While I was going to randomly go to Ottawa Comicon next weekend to schmooze, I’ve got a responsibility here at home that is keeping me from road tripping. I’ll be at Wizardworld Chicago as a guest and perhaps a couple of other between now and then as a fan.
On the subject of commissions, the following pictures were commissioned and not picked up. If these belong to you, please get in touch with me! I think the commissioner was a volunteer, and these were for her nephews.

I promised a friend I would preface any entries with sloths by warning about impending sloths. There are sloths in here. If you love sloths, yay, if not, this is your warning. Sloths appear after the lazer kitten.
I will be at table X26. Come and find me! I will sign artbooks for free, kids get a free signed trading card (Everyone else pays a buck). Doodles starting at $5. Friday i will be running an Ewok mask class for kidlets, and Saturday is ‘You Can Draw Star Wars’ day. Check out the Calgary Expo site for times.
I have the laser kitten artbook piece as my poster. The first 15 people to bring me a copy to sign get a free laser-kitten button! Yay! Buttons!
Oh no, someone charged his lasers!
Did someone say BUTTONS? I have buttons for $2 each. And they’re awesome.
And Stickers! Die cut vinyl. $1.50 each*
And, finally, colouring books. Lovingly drawn and collated by yours truly. $5 each. Full of awesome. I only have 25 of these suckers, but I plan on doing another print run if they sell out. So don’t fret! My luggage was getting heavy.
Of course I will have my usual fare of prints as well. Stop by and say hello at least! I’d love to see you

This is kind of the big thing I’ve been working on for a while – something traditional, cute and with wings. behold, Dragon Ferrets!
I will have letter sized prints available for Calgary Comic Expo attendees to purchase, and the original is also for sale at the show. Also – I plan on doing 4×6 mini prints of each ferret.
While I have uploaded it elsewhere on the internets, I will have my Calgary Expo Artbook piece up here soon!
Also for sale at Calgary Expo (prices TBD): Mystical Critters Colouring Book, How Harold Got His Wings, my 2011 Sketchbook (no new book this year for Calgary, the 2011 one will be discounted!). Plus prints! Sketches! You-As-A-Pony and/or Your Fave Pokemon cheap doodles! Vinyl stickers! Magnets! BUTTONS! and original art. I’ll be signing artbooks from the past or present, as well.
Also, this year my display is guaranteed to not fall down. I have the power of awesomeness (And pre-building the display) at my disposal this time.
As we get closer to the con, more art will be posted. Like dragons. And Hydras. And Laser kittens. And sloths!

Happy Valentines Day!
I was originally going to be really ambitious and had six valentines sketched out, but I didn’t end up finishing them in time for the big day, so I made these two!
I know Wesley is annoying, but he also deserved a little love and a bad pun. And Worf because cute Worf is awesome.

I only took one commission for the holiday season, well two commissions for one person, and it was Doctor Who themed, so how could I resist?
Here is the Tenth Doctor hanging out with Charlotte and Rose, and the Tenth Doctor shopping for shoes with Jenny while a jealous Dalek looks on.
These were super fun to do
I also painted two of my nieces and my nephew as Ponies. Here we have Pardner, Chatterbox and Pokepal. I find it awesome that my three year old nephew is already a Brony. He specifically requested that his cutie-mark be a red hat.
I am going to be at Calgary Comic Expo this year and I will be offering ‘You as a Pony’ doodles again. They are going to be watercolour this time around, unless people desperately need a specific colour of marker. The watercolour ones are way more fun – and faster, too!

I have been granted permission to post all my batman cards. I have them all up in my Batman:The Legend gallery, but I have included most of them in this post!
First, my fave Manbat, and then the rest. I will probably feature a card or two every now an then that has a story attached to it. The story with this Manbat is that I have always loved Manbat, and I just wanted to do something awesome.

Lately I’ve been doing a little art, but I can’t show it off yet as everything has been a gift! HOWEVER, I have some cute little scribbles I can show you. These are the kinds of things that leap out of a ballpoint pen and onto the paper when I least expect it.
Several of the drawings live at the lab I work at. What can I say? I have a wonderful workplace. The reindeer were painted for our door to the lab.
The reindeer ate too many cookies and fell off the door a few times. oops!
Ballpoint pen critter drawings. It’s fun to scribble northern Ontario animals. The bottom sketch is me trying to get one of our analyzers to work via a death stare.
Carl is our chemistry analyzer. Carl has a button called ‘Completn time’ which I always ALWAYS imagine in Applejack’s voice.

I totally can’t believe I forgot to post this. These are the first 9 cards I am allowed to show for my Batman; The Legend gig.
I was super excited to be a part of this!
Once I can show more, I will show more. I have to wait for the official OK of the Art Director.
Also, have a pantsless dwarf drinking with a paladin.
And as a happy note, I keep forgetting to post this, I will be a guest at WizardWorld; Chicago next year. I also plan on attending Calgary Comic Expo after missing it last year.

That secret set I have been alluding to for a while has been announced, but I have to tease you all a little with the details before I am allowed to post my cards. I am a sketch card artist on the DC Comics Batman: The Legend card set. As soon as I can, I will post some cards. I feel humbled in the presence of many of the artists on that list and I hope to do more superhero stuff in the future.
I finished this fabulous return card for Star Wars Galactic Files fan James.
If you are interested in a custom return, I am asking $125 per card. No more than two characters. Unless it’s Ewoks or Jawas. I will draw as many of those on a card as I can fit.
I also drew this Rockin’ Dragon on cardboard who is looking for a home:
I have also added some more art you can get to by perusing my gallery, but they will have a special post of their own later.
