When I was Little

So it seems that 10 years ago today I was bold and fearless and looked pretty cute in a pair of fishnet stockings.

The talented Charles Fournier just showed me photos he took, 10 years ago today, of my comedy fire-eating routine of old.

Here I am in downtown Hamilton Ontario (if you can busk it there, you can busk it anywhere), gathering my crowd, workin’ them like nobody’s business, pulling up the most “Hamilton” volunteer you could ever find, and earning enough hat for two fancy coffees.  It would have been three coffees, but upon seeing I had change in my hand, a panhandler immediately came up to me and asked for it.  Ooooh, Hamilton.

Chairs

Last year I was stuck on dead sparrows as a subject (a few more here). Dead birds served me well.  They expressed whatever it was I needed to express (still not entirely sure what that was) … until my cat got a hold of the model and I was forced to move on.

When I did, I returned to an old love that creeps up on me every few years.  I don’t know what it is about old, wooden chairs, but I feel them, like people. They are characters.

Here is my collection of chairs, so far.

And the term “study” sounds so cliche.  I prefer to think of this as a “flight” of chairs.  All wooden chairs, but a in a variety of flavors, with different undertones and aftertastes.

(One day I’ll take well-lit photos.)

Hello, Internet users and cool kids!

I have neglected to keep my website up to date on my animation work.  I’ve been storyboarding for the last 1.5 years and working on a few additional top secret projects (all in good time).  I recently began storyboarding for the new “Corner Gas, The Animated Series”, which is sure to be more Canadiana Gold.  I’m a pretty proud cookie. …if cookies can be proud.  Peacock? ……..Sasquatch?

Here are some videos I’m legally allowed to share:
