Leif Peng, who has for years posted the quintessential  blog on illustration has a new book project out on Kickstarter. As he writes below:

Just want to mention I will be launching a Kickstarter on June 1st (my birthday!) for a book on the Art of Will Davies - my former studio mate and one of the grand old men of the Canadian illustration scene. Will was to the Canadian women's magazine market what Coby Whitmore was to McCall's and Ladies Home Journal - and what Bernie Fuchs was to Detroit (you had to wear many hats to make it in our small pond, and Will wore the crown at Toronto's largest art studio, TDF, during it's heyday.

I'm attaching a couple of his pieces for your enjoyment. The nude almost got him a steady gig at Playboy, by the way.

Here is a link to the Kickstarter project. These books are always hard to find treasures you kick yourself for missing as time passes. Make sure you check this out today.

At the start of the year I really had the best of intentions of trying to post something every week on this blog…but we all know what Robert Burns said about that (The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men. Gang aft agley,. An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,.).  So this is my first post in a while, but I’m hoping I do get back on a regular track. Trying to turn out a comic book on a regular schedule tends to eat into all your time.

And it doesn’t help when you do a cover and take it to a finish…and then decide it just doesn’t work as well as you’d like- so you redo it. Here are the two versions of Mad Mummy #7. the first is a nice drawing, but the second really captures the drama of the moment…and that’s what I’m going with. The rest of the issue is now colored and should be on it’s digital way to iVerse in another three weeks.

Just to whet your appetite, here are a few of the pencilled pages from issue #8, the last segment in this story arc.

These a three commissions I did for a GI Joe fan. They are always a lot of fun and a great diversion from the regular work. As is the watercolor of the kitty that I finally finished.
