Noah’s Archipelago: “Pool Party at the In-Laws”

New comic strip for Noah’s Archipelago now up, here’s just the first page: I did things a bit differently this week as each of the 3 pages worked as self-contained strips as well as part of the longer story for the week, so I posted the first page on...

The Nick White Show: “Nick’s Ukrainian Adventure”

New prequel/mini-episode for The Nick White Show. From the video description: Nick is thrilled with the “Ukrainian visit” video Pádraig helped him make, but will his manager and publicist approve?...

A few monotypes from this week’s workshop at MISSA

So this week I attended the Metchosin International Summer School for the Arts aka MISSA for the first time. I’d registered for a course at MISSA in 2020, but… well, we all know what happened then. This is the first year MISSA has been back, and I picked Heather...

Fakes, frauds, and grifters

I’m not gonna call anyone out by name, so we’ll just say “Z” for the apparent generation of the one who inspired this rant. Z is a video content creator. Nothing wrong with that. Z tells people she’s an artist. And she paints, so sure. OK. Z seems to...

New shade tree, new fountain, new comics, etc.

The first proper instalment of my new webcomic Noah’s Archipelago is now done. I won’t post it all here because it’s 16 pages, but here’s the first 2 for ya: Read the rest here. I’ll try to post new comics on Fridays from here on out, but they won’t...

Well, when I last wrote I still had a hoarse voice from being sick, but that has now gone back to normal, so come Monday morning I’ll be back at it for The Nick White Show. About all I did for Nick this week was write a couple short...

Sickness and the start of that leprechaun sculpt

Well, I guess the short version of the blog is “I got sick and did nothing all week other than cough and complain.” But that’s not quite true, of course. I came down with flu-like symptoms on Sunday afternoon which got worse through Monday. Tuesday I woke about 30%...

Tree plans and not-yet-organized chaos

Almost forgot the Saturday blog… it’ll be a short one this week. The heat has arrived and that means watering duty is back. My dad’s been helping me rip out weeds, but there is definitely a need for me to get on track with laying down cardboard and mulch...
