I’m on the final leg of drawing a graphic novel (54 pages left to ink!!! aaaaaa!!) and am currently in the RRAAR GODZILLA stage of mental sanity. Which is to say, there isn’t much and everything hurts. Especially my shoulders.
I drew the above comic when I finished my second graphic novel, The War at Ellsmere, back in 2008. The mental process I go through drawing a graphic novel remains the same, despite the fact that I’m now a full-time cartoonist, instead of an occasional one. ;) Funny how the line between professional and amateur is … uh, pretty much non-existent.
Oh yeah, and my most recent graphic novel, Friends With Boys, had 3 typos in it. Nnnoooooo.
Screen Editor alex shares his list of absurd horror comedies, including Miike, Bergman, Tucker & Dale.
Sometimes life is uncooperative. The consequences extend from our highest functions to the lowest corners of the cultural gutter. Here, friends, is the result of my non-compliant life situation: a list of things that make me think of other things, loosely organized around the theme of absurd horror-comedies!

Flyer from the late Kung Fu Fridays film program in Toronto. Strangely enough the date for this screening coincides with tonight’s Drive-In Mob Chow Yun-Fat Heroic Bloodshed Double Feature!
Kung Fu Fridays was programmed by current Toronto International Film Festival programmer and ActionFest Director, Colin Geddes. This particular flyer is from when the series was in its nomadic years before it found its home at the Royal. And, this particular screening was held in a theater that mostly showed porn at the time, leading passersby to wonder at the long line outside and down the block.
