Towel Day (May 25) celebrates the life of author Douglas Adams. Funny guy, good human being. This sketch depicts the arrival of the Vogon Constructor Fleet and one of my favourite sentences from The Hitchhiker’s Guide The Galaxy.

NYC Bingo

We drove down to New York City for the Victoria Day weekend. Here’s a bingo card I worked on each morning to keep track of the great time we were having with our friends in the Big Apple. (click image to view large)

Batman with a machine gun

The Super Wonder Gallery presents The TV Retro Super Show this weekend at its giant new Bloor Street space. As always, the opening will be a huge bash with entertainment and entertaining people. The TV Retro Super Show leans heavily towards TV and Movie pulp imagery and features the work of over 100 artists.

I contributed this portrait, Bang! Pow!,  of a machine gun-wielding Batman. According to comics canon, Batman never uses a gun. My leap over this moral checkpoint is intended to be funny, startling, and maybe make the viewer think about the real world’s rules of violence and war.
