Ferry alternative

My cartoon for the Northeast Avalon Times! Pick one up! The poor old Bell Island ferry seems to be forever up on cinder blocks.

I'm no baker but I made some shortbread cookies during Christmas. Before polishing off the last of them, I took a few pix and made this little painting. (Oil on plywood, 12"x12")

Still life

Had a painting session at a friend's place tonight which resulted in this little still life over the course of 2 hours. See how healthy I'm painting? All that fruit. But who am I kidding ... I'll be painting pizza slices before the end of the month.

This little painting of Harley, a much loved and much missed Goldendoodle, was a Christmas present to his family. (12"x12", oil on plywood)

Life drawing

Trying to switch my brain out of production mode... I think the lever might be stuck. Rifling through some drawings made at Group of '77 life drawing two years ago... need to get back to those sessions.

Pink Eye and Printers' Fair

Big thanks to everyone who came by the Craft Council Craft Fair this past week! I'm looking forward to being at these two great events this coming weekend: Pink Eye Autumn Art Sale on Saturday and the annual Printers' Fair on Sunday. Both are happening at The Rocket (upstairs in the studio space), Water Street, St. John's. I'll have my t-shirts and linocuts at both these events.

Tuxedo final

I finished printing the second colour on the "Tuxedo" linocut earlier today and promptly continued cutting the plate for the third and final colour. Here's a proof. I'm happy with it. So the next 24 hours will be a frenzy of printing so I can do packaging on Tuesday and have them ready for the Craft Fair on Wednesday evening (Jack Byrne Arena, Torbay, Nov. 11-15). I haven't done a final tally yet but I'm expecting to have around 50 prints in the run.

Tuxedo linocut, 2nd colour

This is a frantic week of making and packaging. On the making side of things, I'm working on this linocut "Tuxedo." I pulled this quick proof of the 2nd colour tonight. Hoping to have this available next week at the Craft Council Craft Fair at the Jack Byrne arena in Torbay, NL (Nov. 11-15).

Copper tree in progress

Working on some copper trees this week. Trees have been my go-to doodle since childhood so making these is a lot of fun. This pic is is a detail of the larger piece.

Hot off the press... some faux swag for a long defunct Newfoundland enterprise, the Superior Rubber Company.

Clean screens

Several hours today were spent on the glamorous job of rejuvenating old screens. Stripped of emulsion, dehazed, degreased with a power wash between each. New emulsion going on tonight and they'll be ready for new designs tomorrow. Time to order more t-shirts!

Big City Reflections #1

Sometimes you've got to stop everything and do something off the wall. This is one of those somethings. I'm calling it "Big City Reflections #1". It's copper and aluminum on masonite, 11"x14". No antiquing on this one... polished and buffed au naturel.

Some recent cartoons for the Northeast Avalon Times.

Weekend events

Two of my copper pieces (shown above) have been selected for the Craft Council of NL Annual Members' Exhibit which opens at 2pm this Saturday, June 27 (2nd floor of Devon House). On the same day, I'll be a vendor at Some Good Market, Canonwood Hall (St. Thomas' parish hall) on Military Road... just a few minutes walk from Devon House so you could take in both events! These copper pieces, Duelling Squid and Fox Skull, are 11" x 14", framed and limited edition (I'm only making 6 of each design... each one is numbered accordingly). I might have another Duelling Squid with me at the market (working on it today) but you'll find both at the exhibit. Please drop by and check them out! At the market I will also have my usual wares: linocut prints, silk-screened t-shirts, painting reproductions and smaller copper-tooled pieces.
