"Many-Coloured Serpents" Launch

After plenty of delays, the launch of Many-Coloured Serpents is finally happening. I printed these in April; it is September. The quiet boxes in my basement have grown moss, tendrils.

A perfect occasion to shed these vegetate capes:

So: you could, if inclined, join me for an evening of leafhands, serpents, alchemy, and bands to celebrate. Dirges and driftsongs from local musical acts Brushsigns and Kris Ellestad.

The event is free. More details here.

Monday September 29, 8 PM at Local 510
510 17 Ave SW - Calgary, AB

Many-Coloured Serpents

It has been a good long while since I've posted anything: slow movements circumvented motivation in that casual slide between inertia and blooming (sleep and blossom). Somehow between sloth and a river of libations I was able to force myself to send my new comic, Many-Coloured Serpents, to the printers. I will have them between palms shortly, and ideally, you will too.

In the mean-time, take a look at a sample:

Two palms

Progress on Eelsong was put on hiatus due to my wonderful trip to Ireland, France and Italy, where I ogled Boticellis, Giambolognas, and Peruginos until my eyes glowed, and roosted beneath the ogives and airy apses of the many temples covering Western Europe, virtually levitating in air thick with awe. I also found myself plucking away at some other small projects, indefinitely distracted, and procrastinating the execution of the front and back covers, knowing upon their completion I would have to enter the onus of colour correction, layout, those lulls and sleepy drifts.

Here are the paintings that will adorn these covers. These are done with pen and watercolour on illustration board. The front:

Apex harpist

After lengthy detours down poorly lit serpentines, the writing, drawing, inking, and painting of Eelsong is complete. All that remains is the lettering, which I admit I am not look forward to; my handwriting is, if not abysmal, at least subterranean; it sits buried in a tumulus somewhere between legibility and calligraphy, unsure of both. The horizontal subverted.

Here are a selection of pages; I will post more when they are lettered.

Eelsong will be 24 pages, black and white, painted in watercolour.
