SOTS 2015 print

It's that time of the year again... CBC Radio Toronto is greeting up for SOUNDS OF THE SEASON!

The annual CBC open house with great guests, amazing music, silent auctions -  all to raise money for Ontario food banks.

One of my favourite days of the year.

Each SOTS I make a limited edition lino-print - given as a thank you to people who donate $100+ (and then email me to tell me they've done this). All the details are on the website.

I was inspired both by the leaves that are still amazing and visible outside my studio window - as well as a recent rush of Canadian pride and hopefulness....

The print is about 5x6 inches and each one is hand-printed and signed by me.

I'll also be doing a live drawing (all day long) that reflects the day of programming. I sit in the foyer outside Glenn Gould Studio and doodle.

Here's last year's....

Drop by and say hello!

Friday December 4 - starting at 5:30 am~

Cat doodle

When I visit schools I always draw cats as part of my cartooning class.
Then I tell the students to check out my blog to see an example - but I haven't put up a new one in a while.

So here's a cat I doodled on the bag that our dinner arrived in (delicious Indian food from a restaurant named Banjara)!

I kind of like the cat's detached attitude and throw-back preppie outfit.

Just a doodle, but a good example of the importance of doodling all the time. Practice, practice, practice.

Hallowe'en Treat!

One of my fans - Duncan - sent me these pics of his costume this year... Neil Flambé!

He even did the Neil proboscis! And he made the wig himself!
(he did have some sketches I made for him to go by.)

What's even more wonderful is that Duncan used his night to get food for the Hallowe'en for Hunger campaign. Wow.
