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...

Noah’s Archipelago: “Noah’s Ark”

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...

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%...

Friday Arts & Crafts Day Update: April 29, 2022

Been a while, but then I’ve been working on this stuff for at least 2 weeks and nothing else to report on this month… so… it’s all about the strippers’ changeroom set for The Nick White Show. Let’s have a shot of the whole set first, ready to shoot...

Friday Arts & Crafts Day Update: April 1, 2022

Skipped doing one of these last week because, well, I didn’t have much done last week for crafts and I had no time to blog anyway due to getting this week’s huge “Meet Nick White” video. But for next week’s video? Well, we need a peek inside the Whites’...

No stitching or knitting this week, but I did get my grubby paws on some 22 count aida, which has been nowhere to be found in the 3 local-ish Michael’s for a couple months, and thus I dyed those and FINALLY used up the last of the stash of...

Friday Arts & Crafts Day Update: March 11, 2022

Slow week this week in terms of crafting and even in terms of prop-building. I needed some plain backgrounds for “sets” for The Nick White Show, so I painted a pair of canvases grey and another pair black to make for a couple different room corner options: The black...

Friday Arts & Crafts Day Update: March 4, 2022

No knitting or stitching this week, it was all about the prop and set making for The Nick White Show this week. The biggest project was this graffiti and poster wall that I officially needed only for one quick shot in a montage in the trailer, but I kinda...

Friday Arts & Crafts Day Update: February 25, 2022

More stuff for The Nick White Show: It should be noted for the record that those Grammys are not Nick’s. Instead, they were awarded to his rival who already has a couple dozen of them kicking around in his garage: In other prop-building for the show, I’ve painted a...
