I’m sure anyone who is an avid webcomics reader knows about Dave Geurtin and Greg Baldwin over at CreatureBox.com. Every now and then they put together time lapse videos of their work in SketchBook Pro and it absolutely amazes me. As a creator, I totally geek out over this stuff. This one is great fun going into the Halloween weekend.
I need to draw more…
Local Halifax blogger Patricia Arab contacted me a few weeks ago about writing a piece about Starcrossed. Through our email conversations I came to find out that she had developed a little crush on Charlie. I thought it was a unique (and flattering) take on the characters that I have been working with for almost two years now.
I am in love with a guy named Charlie Decker. He is the perfect guy for me. Sweet, and shy, a bit of a nerd. A MacHead who seems to have a penchant for cute brunettes (although I do suspect there is something going on between him and this blonde coffee barista!) A guy who has a mom much like my own, who not only is a sci-fi fan but a rom-com one too. Charlie Decker is also a comic character.
You can read the full Starcrossed article on Paris a la Mode.
Patricia’s blog is about a single girl’s life Here in Halifax.
Thanks for the great article Patricia!
I was hanging with fellow independent artist Paton Francis over the weekend and he loaned me this book. The Art of Animal Character Design by David Coleman. I was already familiar with Coleman’s work, but not aware of it. I had only seen it in compilation and “art of” books. This was my first time consuming a large portion of his beautiful drawings and paintings in one sitting. No matter your artistic avenue, from cartoonist and character designers, to animators painters and graphic artists, you will appreciate his work.

Chim Chum and the Portly Samurai is a daily (Monday through Friday) all-ages comic strip written and drawn by Adrian Ropp. It follows the adventures of an as-yet-to-be-named samurai of questionable origins and his silent sidekick, a small fox named Chim Chum. The comic generally follows a single-panel gag format. A larger, ongoing story remains under wraps, but is in the works.
The new episode of The Dating Digital Podcast is up on the show blog. We tackled wedding season on Laura’s first episode as official co-host. My sister Andrea joined us as well.
DDP episode 25 marks the first episode in our new show schedule of once a month. We had to record a bit early for the October show due to some work related travel in Laura’s schedule, but we will be sitting down to record episode 26 for November when she’s back. This month, we received some great email from listeners Andrew and Kevin, including a suggestion on a new segment! Profile Reviews.
