Mad Men - Peggy Olsen

Do you watch Mad Men? You should, it's really good. Tonight's episode, I thought, was particularly good, so, realizing I hadn't drawn a caricature in quite some time, I sat down at my Cintiq and gave Peggy Olsen a shot.

I was a little rusty, but it was fun. I think I may do more caricatures from Mad Men. All the characters have such interesting personalities. Peggy is very private and often forces a smile to cover up what she's really feeling which I tried to get across but could have done a better job on. Good, subtle expressions are tough.

Ottawa - Drawing on Menus with Friends

The Ottawa Animation Festival was two weeks ago and it was really cool to see my video in a theater with a bunch of kids.

In between screenings on Saturday, Sean McBride, Erin Kilkenny and I drew on menus for a bit. Towards the end David Cowles joined us and drew some nice caricatures of bar patrons.

I've barely touched this blog, so I figured I might as well share my drawing.

I definitely got caught drawing some of the people, but they didn't seem to mind. Canadians are so polite.

John McCain: Christian Enough?

I wrote this mock-commercial for John McCain before he picked Sarah Palin as his VP. Her selection has put this issue on the back burner (I guess Evangelicals are banking on him dying), but I felt like making it anyway.
