No, not much

Looking forward to the upcoming Holiday vacation, but also looking forward to return back to work. How weird is that?
Maybe because I've been having fun with the characters in the past few days, doing not quite so serious drawings.


Started drawing the characters and silly ideas in a Joann Sfar inspired style. I can't share everything, but here's a peek.



Must be a good sign. I still need extra sleep to recuperate from the past few weeks of intense work, but if I'm starting to doodle like that, I must be on the rebound.

Yay, fun doodles! Sleep and recovery is good :3 I'm looking forward to holiday time off, too, since I don't have any travels and I can stay in my nice warm bed, haha.

Nice warm bed- favorite place to be in winter! I swear I was made to hibernate.

Oh, man, you got the Sfar look down nicely! Though it still seems a little too flexible :D

What's your favorite book drawn by him? My favorite is the professor's Daughter. (http://www.bedetheque.com/serie-15664-BD-Professor-s-daughter-The.html)

I must admit not to have read a lot of his things: a short Dungeon story (though most of Dungeon work is Trondheim..I may be forgetting here), some of his vampire stuff, and his adaptation of "Le Petit Prince". I should say Sfar inspired, but there's something about his lines that is nice and loose. I have to work on that. My lines tend to be very taunt instead of loose.
I actually read more Christophe Blain than Joann Sfarr.

Hhahah! It's easy to tell what styles attract your eyes then.

Have a good holiday vacation and get some rest! :)
I love that style. Very cool doodles.

And that icon cracks me up. LOL.

I'm seeing you icon, and all I can think of is the movie "Christmas Story".
Now I'm having a mental image of Iroh with a leg lamp...

It was a drawing I did a couple of years ago. Aang would wear the pink bunny suit and he would probably like it...ha ha ha!

I may draw him again this year for the holiday. :D

Iroh with the lamp...ROFL. Azula as the bully...the possibilities are endless! Zhao cursing out the furnace.

Thanks! Fun to try and draw in a different style. Loosens the drawing muscle up.
Say, are you going back to Montreal for the holidays?

Lovely doodles, I had actually forgotten about that project for a while. Really glad to see you're still getting work, too.

I'll admit though, I'm a little shaky about it...specifically because of Jack Frost, since I have a character very similar to his design when it first got revealed. When my college thesis film comes out, I'm afraid people are gonna think I ripped from this Dreamworks movie that isn't even OUT yet, yargh.

That's okay, we know how you feel.
We keep having to refer to the movie at the moment as "Guardians- NOT the owl movie!". ;)
