Biker gangs moving into St. John’s was in the news last week and again this week. Also some questions raised as to whether or not it’s just an over-hyped story. Either way, people are talking about it.
Between the weekend markets and my freelance work, there’s been no art-making the last week or so. But the ideas are percolating madly. Anxious to get the next painting underway as soon as the schedule clears a little.

Hand-pulled prints are available at my Etsy shop. (Which is gradually filling up with personified puffins.)

I started this walrus a few weeks ago. Last night I had another crack at it. Went a bit crazy with the purple which is not realistic but I’m liking it nonetheless.
I’ve got a large piece in mind for this character so this is essentially a small study to help me get sense form and colour. And it’s still in progress. Among other issues, his snout is still a bit wonky which is causing problems with his lower lip and tusks. Poor fellah.
In line with my personified puffins, I’m imagining a burly, Victorian barkeep behind the bar cleaning glasses or pulling a pint. And with a fat handlebar moustache, the size and shape of his snout. So that might be the next big painting.
Below is another progress shot from the very early stages when I was just blocking out the shape. It isn’t pretty, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
