Inktober is over, and I have a bunch of ink draws that I decided to do something with. I’ve decided that since these adult colouring books are all the rage right now, I might as well try it out. I have selected several of the images from inktober 2015 and made them into an adult Colouring book.
Epic Canadiana 2
We got to see the printed copies of the Epic Canadiana #2 that was being published by Cloudscape Comics, and it looks great! As soon as it is avaiable to the public, we will let you know. I have 3 credits in 3 different stories in that one, I illustrated some of the Ghost Woman comic, I lettered Jayleens comic, and I inked another story in there. It’s been a busy year.
Bones of the Coast
Currently, I am illustrating a story for another Cloudscape anthology, patreons are seeing some sneaky peeks of the characters and process and the rest of you will be seeing some early next year.
With a new Year coming up fast, I plan on spending more time on some of my personal projects such as the Gourd Wife, Finishing Daqueran and the Extinct Animals art book.
Inktober was great! I was in a huge slump, wasn’t really feeling like anything but forcing myself to draw a picture every day, whether I liked it or not, pulled me right out of that horrible hole and now I’m in a big new wave of creativity! I’m in love with the hominid cryptids I did and was actually a little sad when some of them sold, or were raffled away. Very grateful for the sales and that people will be enjoying them, though. I think a few of the remaining ones will be framed and hung up on my wall.
Hello, Albertosaurus has has a few pages here and there with some loose interpretations of “weekly” updates. I’m actually out of pre- layouted pages and am finding that the final chapters need some work. I’ll probably continue to have spotty or floating updates as I sort that out but actually, we are nearing the end of this story. bear with me while I pull it together and also work through some other paid work. (see below)
Rest in Seas
The comic I was working on for Halloween has been postponed until March. I had too much going on at the time (and now) to manage to pull that one off well. It’ll be done by April.
Pop Up Pet Shoppe
I’ll be selling some adorable paintings of pets (cats and dogs) at the Pop Up Pet Shoppe in New Westminster on December 12th and 13th. Come down and get some original art work, and treats for your pets. There is even photos with Santa. I may be there on the Sunday, if you want to come say hi! I have to dedicate a fair amount of time to producing art for this event which is why the Hello, Alberto updates are spotty.
On that note, I have also opened up Commissions of Pet Portraits!(the link is permanently under “shop” in the menu) I think they make a lovely personalized Christmas gift for pet lovers in your life. If you’d like to have them mailed to you by Christmas you should order now! I’ll be leaving them open for a while as we are raising money to send sister Jeri to Veterinary Technician school. When my schedule gets overwhelming I turn off the commissions though so get them while you can.
