Demmed Elusive

Attempting to expand my repertoire a little, to avoid eliciting the reaction of "Oh not another... (you know what goes here)," I've been sketching a few different characters from classic lit. I'm still working out my Watson, but have some Sir Percy Blakeney, bart., the Scarlet Pimpernel, in the meantime.

I need to do more research on fashion from the era before I can confidently draw the clothing, but it was the expression I was after here, more than anything else.

Sketch is... small. Pencil on paper, slight clean-up and a touch of colour in Photoshop.

This Sunday: The Bazaar of the Bizarre

I'll be there! Will you?

11am to 7pm, at the Pia Bouman School of Dance, 6 Noble Street (near Queen and Dufferin). Free admission, and family friendly!

Facebook event page here:!/event.php?eid=193349210683736

This is my favourite art and craft fair of the whole year, hands down. I am never so tempted by so many wonderful, weird, totally-to-my-taste things as I am at this event.

I'll be there, in my usual spot from the last two times I've shown there, with plenty of new work -- and this time, with signed, matted, ready-to-frame colour prints of about a dozen of my original paintings!

A little Holmes

And I do mean little. This sketch is only about 2" tall.

I'm in the early stages of working out my cartooned versions of Holmes and Watson for a silly little comic I have scripted out.

What on earth are these comics all for, you ask? Well! Stay tuned for some big news! In the meantime, I'll be posting some of my efforts towards... whatever it is.
