SF Sketches

Here are a few sketches done around San Francisco over the past few months. I’ve been spending a lot of time at the California Pacific Medical Centre‘s Castro Street branch lately, and on my way there and back I sometimes stop by the Market and Castro intersection to eat prior to riding the Muni-M line. Here are some left-handed [..READ MORE..]

JaMiE-CoN!

It’s been a while since I’ve exhibited at COMIC-CON (in fact, my seller’s permit was recently cancelled from lack of use) so I thought I might hold JAMIE-CON instead; an online convention for anyone unable to attend the San Diego convention in person, and I finally added all my comic books and just some of my prints to my Nerve Bomb Comics web store.

INSIDE OUT

INSIDE OUT is an unusual film for a big studio to make; it is very ambitious and abstract. I worked on the story team from 2010 to late 2012, and everyone was excited about the idea, but dramatising that idea was at times quite challenging. I finally saw the film at a crew Wrap Party screening last month, [..READ MORE..]

Monterey: Trip Home

Driving up Highway #1 from our visit to Monterey Aquarium, Julia and I saw a beautiful spot and pulled over to see Pigeon Point Lighthouse. This picturesque scene was made even moreso by the sight of a grey whale and her calf swimming past the lighthouse at close quarters. We enjoyed the scenery so much that we decided [..READ MORE..]

Monterey: The Bay

The first trip that Julia and I ever took together was to see the Seahorse exhibit at the Monterey Aquarium back in 2009. There have been many dramatic changes in our lives in the interim (leaving me quite the worse for wear) but happily, Julia and I are still together, Monterey is as pleasant a destination as ever, [..READ MORE..]

I'm ready for my close-up

Apr 15, 2015 3:05pm After almost 25 years living in California, I’ve finally gotten my own Botox injections. Instead of being used on my ever wrinkling brow and baggy eyes, the preferred wonder drug of Hollywood starlets was jabbed into the spastic muscles of my arm and leg. One of the strange aspects of what has happened to [..READ MORE..]

OPERATION SNOWBALL!

I’ve been pretty excited about my first paid professional art assignment as a left-handed artist. A few months ago, my good friend of many years, Carol Hughes, commissioned me to draw the cover for her latest book, OPERATION SNOWBALL, a fun adventure story based on the fictitious (or perhaps TRUE) adventures of her family dogs, PICKLE AND PEARL. It has been over two years since I’ve [..READ MORE..]

Éirinn go Brách

The year I turned 10 years old my family lived in Scotland and England, as my Dad did sabbaticals there. That summer, Dad couldn’t resist the chance to head over to IRELAND for a bit of ancestor hunting, and we tracked down MUCKALEE; the tiny KILKENNY village that his mother’s ancestors were from. Dad had been lost in [..READ MORE..]
