PCP051-052 BUG PLANET

Another revision to a character previously seen on the PCP project, which may have his own story to tell in the future. I’m having fun creating his little world. The best thing about a world of Fantasy is that the creator makes up his own rules…the laws of science do not have to apply.

PCP050 Big Sugar.

CBC has been running their Documentary Films for all of September.
The image I created was a reaction to BIG SUGAR. Modern day
SLAVERY in the Dominican republic. Haitians are lured across the border
with promises of a better life, ending up with so little. Companies owned by off
shore interest, able to overlook labour laws and human rights.

PCP043-48 Scribbles

043-045

I thought I would try including some recognizable characters in these postcard series,just to keep them interesting. I'm finding the real challenge has been getting the time to upload the images. Getting the cards done is the easy part.


046-048

Fiona set up an activity on MIC to create some thing out of a "scribble" so I took on the challenge.This is a game I'd been playing with Zachary recently.

PCP038-42 Artifacts & Inventions


PCP041-42

Inventions. Everyday someone has a bright idea, but how many take the time to record them?
This little design for an ink-feeding cartridge to a natural hairbrush is just an idea; I may take the time to build a prototype. See if it can really work? I may have a few more similar artifacts in my sketchbooks, ranging from book cover-carriers, book shelving and store designs, toys and games.

Dragons pop up in my sketchbooks now and again…waiting for stories to be told.





PCP039-41 Artifacts.

An old ice cream bucket holds an assortment of pencil crayons and other small trinkets of a childhood shared between sisters. A plastic little boy in blue overalls has been separated from a forgotten play set. An Avon broach hides a compartment for a lip moisturizer, it seemed every girl I knew in elementary school had at least one. Rubberstamps with dated images, girls in bell bottom pants and cute puppies, once decorated letters and notes to friends long since moved away.
Funny how you remember childhood friends, they retain their youth forever and ever. Never aging in memory. Like home movies in your brain.

Playing around with a reduced comic page format.I'll have to figure out how to get rid of the page divisions. Still a bit of eraser crumble on here. More images to follow, fell behind on scanning some of the images.

PCP034-036 Flood

Many years ago,

It rained all night.When we woke up,water had risen into the house.Slippers
sat on the water like boats. Snakes took shelter in the house,slithering on walls
and swimming around our island bed.



My brother Gary and I made it outside later in the day.The wooden basketball net
had fallen and made a perfect raft. Frogs,toads,snails and snakes were plenty.




There was a Funeral home across the street.The owner had the family home connected.
I came over once in a while to play with their kids and watch TV. One afternoon I was sitting up
in a tree in their backyard, a Mother came in with her child about six years old.She was crying.
The boy was very still as the man looked him over.
Urine stained the boy's pants and streamed off
the table.I laughed to myself,thinking the boy was just sleeping.

PCP031-033 Character Designs

Creating Characters for stories is always the most fun.You add and take away what you like and don't like...never knowing what you end up with.
