The Zamo the Destroyer Show #195

New episode of The Zamo the Destroyer Show: It’s been an entertaining couple weeks, starting with Zamo interrupting the shunning of Technical Support Monkey to tag along to Vancouver in the hopes of getting to “help” with a dental appointment and culminating in Technical Support Monkey falling down the...

First new (finished) work of 2020

Well, in terms of the mixed media stuff – my desk is littered with various components for the mixed media series I’m working on, and I finally got one little piece fully assembled as of this afternoon. It’s the original for one of the postcard designs I’ll be getting...

Death of a Crow

So, I was just settling in at my work desk (next to the window to my garden) to sit on my ass, listen to today’s Revenge of the Cis, and maybe – just maybe – do some actual goddamn work. But first: I was snarking with my brother via...

The Zamo the Destroyer Show #194

New episode of The Zamo the Destroyer Show: In theory it’s June, but Zamo has seen little evidence of the sun, so probably the humans are lying once again… just like when Technical Support Monkey spews a bunch of crap about solar cycles as if the cool temperatures have...

A visit to the AGGV and mulling over some of my own work

Finally got back to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to check out their latest show (I’ve lived an hour’s drive away for 3 years now, yet somehow it’s been 4 years since I popped into AGGV, ie, one time when I still lived in Vancouver I came to...

Chugging along on that “comic”

Not much to report, at least not that’s all that visually interesting at the moment. For the “comic” I’m working on (about the wassailing traditions in England), as I said in my last post, I realized that until I finish the text I can’t be 100% sure of the...

The Zamo the Destroyer Show #193

New episode of the Zamo the Destroyer Show, finally: After a long hiatus which must surely be the humans’ fault (as everything always is), Zamo is back… and sorely disappointed in Technical Support Monkey’s refusal to drop dead of corona AIDS like CNN promised all the humans would. In...

Comic layout/thumbnails/tests

Been working on layout for a comic project, including doing thhumbnails for page spreads. But I realized I need to finalize the text before I can start drawing – ie, if I have too much text to easily fit on A5 pages, I’ll have to bump up to US...

Book arrival… and work on another book…

So, parcel delivery apparently happens on Saturdays, at least for Amazon orders… which is weird because it all comes via Canada Post who usually never deliver on weekends, but I guess since we’ve all been on house arrest to satisfy the goddamn corona Karens everyone shops online instead of...

Portfolio sites up and running

Mostly, anyway. I think I have to tweak a bio over the weekend somewhere. I’ve split my portfolio into 4 chunks: painting & drawing, illustration, digital art & design, and textiles work, because that seemed like the most logical way to do it. Right now it seems like almost...
