My bro just bought "ME" the CUTEST Chocolate Lab puppy in the whole wide world!! (Maybe not ME per se... but that's just all technicalities)... Leo's got these ginormous cute puppy paws, and some super hero floppy ears that help him fly as he pounces on the toys he chases, and this crazy tongue that just licks the hell out of everyone and every dog in sight no matter how mean the doggy is. He just loves everyone and is always sooo happy! And the bestest part is.... I'm his favorite!

In about 10 hrs or so my bus leaves for Cape Breton... going to work at Helix Digital in Sydney (poor bastards... don't know what they've gotten themselves into... haha). Have to go look for a refridgerator box for shelter though.... as of yet I have no place to stay, and I start on Monday. Haha! Hopefully someone will donate some waterproofing (saran wrap) and some insulation (tin foil). Usually the lucky horseshoe up my butt seems to kick in when I'm in dire need... hopefully it will kick in soon. ....should probably go finish my laundry too and pack. haha!

Cheers! Thanks for stoppin by!

In my travels I saw....

This kid is obviously quite brilliant. Not only does he come up with a brilliant slogan, and hilarious, Napoleon Dynamite-style art...but he has his work on restaurant placemats all across Canada! Imagine how famous I could get if I was as smart as this grade 3 kid!

Here's a gas bar attendant I saw in Montreal this past week.

Tdot or Bust

K I'm a Tard!

I hope I look better in real life.

Just got back from an adventure to Toronto... visit my bro, his fiance, and "MY" chocolate lab puppy! Anyways.... it's a long car ride from Moncton to Toronto... so I started playing with my camera (In case you were wondering... I'm not vein.... I was just a Tard who was bored!) For some reason when I post them on this blog the colours look inverted.... these photos weren't altered in photoshop or anything... just combined in illustrator. I thought these silly pics were cool because I look like a completely different person in each of them.

C is for COKE-ies

Dear Mr. Christie,

I wanted to write you to let you know I know your secret. I know you’ve been cutting a deal with the PoPo in order to get your hands on some of that addictive white powder you to mix in with your oh soooo delicious Girl Guide COKE-ies…… Personally I think you’ve been extremely irresponsible with your loyal consumers. I am not saying you should quit selling this product (knowing me I would end up in some rehab facility with no-name cookies that don’t even twist properly). I’m just saying maybe you should take a trip out west, get some of B.C.’s finest herbs and make some Special Brownies. Not only would it tie in brilliantly with your Girl Guide campaign, but it would also give your consumers the choice to start with a gateway dessert rather thank starting them off with the hard stuff. At least then, if they found the addiction to come on too strong, they would have safer and easier product to come down from rather than being blindly trapped by your irresistibly delicious Girl Guide Coke-ies.

Advice for Men

The 26 year old who dumped me over email, gave a previous girlfriend a Hallmark card to dump her..... note to all the men out there who think it's a brilliant idea..... uhhhhh good luck with that..... You probably won't be made fun of for the rest of your life you coward!

...And if you're in a ten to 20 year age range of my parents..... yeeeeeahhh um... yeeeeaah. Where do I start..... it's just sooo wrong.... besides the whole, ewww it's just gross thing..... How do I put this lightly...... Logically speaking I'd fear my kind of "fun" would result in your kind of hip replacement. Just not cool.

Random Internet Guys

... And they ask me why I'm single...

And yet some more true horror tales...... Real life is hilarious. Seriously.... who gives his girlfriend a giant inflatable penis for Christmas?!?!

Jack Johnson & Curious George

Curious George put 3D to SHAME!! What a Phenomenal film! Made me sooo excited to be an animator. While the credits were rolling all the children in the theatre started dancing together in the aisles..... There were about 3 or 4 groups of them.... and I'm thinkin..... this is what it's all about! This is why I animate!

Here's my first attempt at JJ and George.... Not quite convinced I captured Jack Johnson's essence accurately.... he always looks so humble in photos.... but it's a fun pic non the less. ... I'll try again and see what I can come up with.

Thanks for Droppin by!

Mail Order Bride-To-Be????

Had a chat with my Ex-Best friend, my loan officer Tom- who used to give me money during my 7 year career as a student so I could live a lavish lifestyle. According to my Ex-Best friend APPARENTLY I have to pay it back... so in his office we started weighing my options... right now as I sit here an unemployed animator living with my parents (not embarrassing at all .. eeeee) I'm thinking I need to make an ad to be a mail order bride.... find me a sugga daddy so I can forget what the term Starving Artist is.....

.... but then I think about men I've attracted in the past such as these guys who say shit like:

"So it's like pretty cool that I only have to wear diapers some of the time eh?"

"My super religious Dad is going to be so disappointed in me when he finds out what we did last night." "What?!?! The doors and all the first floor windows were locked.... and I called 15 times and no one answered. Had to make sure there wasn't another guy with you, and that you were safe."
"Sorry I haven't called lately. I was in the psych ward the last two weeks."
" ... BUT I was TWO TIME gold medalist at the Special Olympics!!! TWO TIME!!!"

Maybe being single isn't so bad afterall! ... and yes these are all based on real events that happened to me.

I'm considering turning these crappy little thumnails into a funny little comic strip.... Put some time into some decent designs. It's unreal how many strange and bizarre events I've been through with men.... I may as well make some good out of the unlucky situations I've been through.

Cafe Sketches-Suggestions welcomed :)

I've been trying to stay motivated post something new every day.... Here are some cafe sketches I did today. Not very successful but I think it's important to show people your good work as well as your less successful stuff..... really hoping that someone will come along and give me some advice on what works for them when approaching cafe sketches... what they focus on. I find the best way to learn is to show people your crap and they'll tell you how to fix it.

With most of these sketches I was looking at the Tim Horton's drive thru order area.... that way I could see people for a few seconds, study interesting features and move on quick.... build up my speed a bit. Although as you can see.. structure was obviously lost. What I really struggled with was capturing the essence of the character.... there really aren't many sketches there that we can really distinguish a particular personality. I like analyzing my crap crap because it motivates me to go back and try again.

Any suggestions on how you all approach cafe sketches would be very much appreciated.
