Holiday Special Title Cards

On December 11, the Sore Boozers (who I play accordion with) hosted a Holiday concert on Zoom. The show was inspired by 1970s TV specials, and featured guest artists, vintage commercials, and a tour of Toronto’s Christmas cinematic locations. The show ran for over two hours and was a hit with everyone who tuned in.

Sore Boozers guitarist Tom Griffiths stitched together dozens of files on the fly to make the show seem like a live broadcast. To help create continuity, I designed retro title cards with band member Dennis Pilon providing radio style voice overs.

Below are some examples of the title cards.

Inktober 2021

I did the drawing exercise Inktober again this year. Working from a prompt list, the idea is to draw every day for the month of October.

My rules this year were:

  • Everything in nib pens and india ink
  • Colouring digitally is okay

It was a good run. Here are the drawings! (also on Instagram @swizzlestudio)
