Nothing revolutionary, I'm afraid. But I had found a long-lost child of mine who I welcomed with open arms and assured would have a loving home with my two children. I tucked them into a large bed in a big room with a great fireplace. This picture is a snapshot of my dream in the early morning when the fire's gone out and the ground outside is covered in snow.

...it's because I'll be spending a lot of my free time drawing my new online web comic, Luz: Girl of The Knowing. Here is Luz.

My comrade Jeff Berg of the Toronto Post Carbon group has written a witty comic for me to illustrate about the sweet deal the U.S. has with Canada. Basically they have priority in getting our oil in times of shortage or crisis. Gordon Laxer of Alberta's Parkland Institute is going to discuss this in a few weeks, where we'll be handing out copies of this comic for fun.
More general info at The Coalition for a Green Economy, Green Enterprise Toronto, and The Parkland Institute. : )

Those who know me also know I'm a doomsday fanatic about the end of the petroleum era. As such, I felt compelled to make my first comic book all about that. It is called SPOILED and will be coming soon to TCAF!
Here is a sneak peak...
For a photo of the cover, more info, or to order a copy,
visit my my online store.
This isn't technically a drawing, but looks cartoonish enough to me to include on my drawing blog. :-)
My friend Christine Cosby of Swizzle Gallery (textile division) is putting together a fun group art project where participants make various parts of creatures (make a head, make legs, etc) and then she mixes them up and stitches them together, making crazy frankenventions. This is the head I made; I'll post when all the parts get assembled and showcased!

Another installation of my one-pagers for Green Living magazine. I enjoyed this one because, 1) I love drawing girls sitting cross-legged, and 2) I like how my silhouette of a polluted city with traffic turned out.

A few posts back I presented the new generation of environmentalists, Marco and Angela. They're the protagonists of a few comics I did for Green Living magazine, who right now have their new Spring edition out with a special Kids supplement distributed to schools.
At the risk of sounding like a geezer, kids today know more about issues than we think -- they're savvy, but just need adults to set a better example of how to be aware of our part in nature.

My friend Mo had a theme party for her birthday recently where everyone had to wear some sort of head gear -- preferably related to the Star Wars movies, and/or pirates. My husband Michael pointed out that Han Solo and Chewbaka were space pirates, so it was settled! I found images of them on the net and re-drew them (in Adobe Illustrator), printed them out, and wore them on our faces as masks -- with the eyes cut out, of course.
They are posted size-as so feel free to copy and print to make your own mask! If, that is, the force be with you.

An assignment for a math text book (I'm not joking), and inspired by the most indulgent, delectable cake and pastry shop in town, despite the abominable counter service. They made our wedding cake, and I'd get married again just to have more!
