Archiving this blog, I've moved!

Dear visitor,

Thank you for checking out this old blog of mine. I'm keeping it online for the fun of seeing old drawings once in a while, but I will no longer be uploading artwork here. My portfolio website is live and that's the one I'll maintain, so have a look at

I also had this wonderful old Flash website portfolio when I graduated college (you'll need to allow Flash player to see it). It will never be updated again, but I keep it up for the memories.

Thanks for checking out my stuff!

Homicidal Pokemaniac!

A couple friends of mine were doing a challenge where on the first day they had to draw themselves as a Pokemon trainer. I took the opportunity to express my feelings about Pokemon, and did the first day's challenge myself. Here's what I came up with. No offense to any fanatics out there, it's just not my thing at all.

Dream World Illustration

It has been a million and a half years to the day since my last post (I am exaggerating, but only slightly). I was thinking about retiring this "blawg", as I have a new website over at, but instead I think I'll keep this one around so I can post some more personal/unprofessional things without turning anybody off of my portfolio site. So look forward to this site becoming more blue than Jake Sully's nuts. I still intend on posting artwork here but the professionalism is out the door. Piss shit shitty piss pot! Anyway so this isn't just a post about how I'm completely losing my marbles, I'm posting an illustration that I did for a game that the fellas at Mercury Active were pitching.

Lil B-man V The Were-Bastard

Many apologies for my lack of postage. I've been incredibly overbooked and I can't believe we're at the end of 2014 already. Since I haven't been putting anything up here I thought I'd at least do a Halloween doodle to stay sharp. This is an image of why Batman really became the Dark Knight Detective, not cause his parents were shot by a mugger, but because he had his Halloween candy pinched by an asshole werewolf. Let's just hope that werewolf can enjoy his candy in traction.

Coming Soon!

     I'm finally starting to put the framework of Operation: Wicked Sweet World Conquest by Art, a.k.a Operation: Handsome Walrus, into place. Starting with my brand spankin' new website, and hopefully ending with me becoming a world famous illustrator and pre-production artist (hey a guy can dream right?). More as this story unfolds, but for now here's a little piece of artwork that I did while I'm putting the site together. I don't know if anybody will see it, because by the time the site is up and ready to go there won't likely be a need for it. 

    Additionally, I am a trained professional, so don't try running with chainsaws at home. Well, I'm not really a professional chainsaw-ist, more of an enthusiast. No, I don't really like chainsaws enough to say I'm an enthusiast. More of a...well...ummmm...a guy who once witnessed a chainsaw.....gas can.......briefly..........or something.

Batman 'n' Harley

I'm hard at work getting all my stuff in a pile and hopefully over the next little while I'll have some news to share on here. For nowthough here's a little goof that I did just for fun.

Capn' Hooker and She-Smee.

It's been a helluva long time since I last posted, but I've been hard at work on a bunch of stuff that I'll never get to show anybody. So here's a lil Jake fan art that I doodled in my sketchbook.

This is an unused design for a mobile game I worked on.
I'll see about putting up more when the game comes out.

These guys were just for fun.

Digital Inks

Last weekend was the second edition of Ottawa Comiccon. I was fortunate enough to go and speak to professionals, and to get some valuable feedback on my comic work. I even sold a piece! I want to thank all the great people I met for the time they took to review my work, it was much appreciated! Here are some digitally inked pages from my portfolio. I will be posting some work in progress over the next few days, so stay tuned!

Halloween Post

I hadn't intended on putting these up for Halloween but I figure it's as good a time as any. These are a few concepts that I did for an unnamed project that, unfortunately was busted. I was pretty excited to design some cool Ghosts and bummed that we didn't get the project. Anyway here they are in all their glory. Enjoy :)

A Big Ole Pile 'O' Caricatures

While travelling to and fro' on the bus my sketchbooks tend to fill up with pictures of some of the fascinating people that make up the,"elite" of the public transit community. I generally travel with my sketchbook and ball point pen just to pass the time. There are also a few random sketches in here but the majority are just doodles from my adventures on the bus.

Some Spide Pencils

Well I got bored so I thought I'd post a page of pencils from a short story involving the Silk Spinning Superhero. Hope you like it, there's more to come.

Comic Stripper!

     Yo Ho Mateys! I'm taking some time out to put up the first three pages I've ever had published from Grayhaven Comics' anthology "The Gathering". My good friend Corey Nowlan wrote the story and I drew the thing, comments and criticisms are welcomed as usual. The comic is available at Apologies as well for the gap between posts but I have a pile of stuff ready to go and I'll be posting it regularly over the next little while.
Farewell and Goodbye.

Published at Last

Greetings Earth Persons,

'Tis I Devin. Here's the skinny. If all goes well a very good friend of mine and I are actually getting a three page short story published in a comics anthology. I'd tell ya the story but I'm hoping most people who enjoy my blog will pick it up. Long story short, these are the three main Characters. The finished art will obviously be much tighter and inked but I wanted to put these up for public scrutiny.
For more info check out this lil linky link:

Thanks For Lookin'

Inky Inky On the Cintinqy tinqy

Howdy y'alls it's been a loooooooong time since I've posted. I've been so pre-occupied that I have barely had time to use my brand spankin' new Cintiq but I have used it to ink this cover, and I think it turned out very nicely so dig on this, and as always comments are encouraged.

Just Fiddlin'

This is just a little doodle I blasted out I'm movin' so I've been kinda busy, so it's just a sketch I'll hopefully get 'round to putting up some more refined stuff with backgrounds and the like, I'm also going to take a rip at a few illustrations I've had in mind. Hope y'all dig.

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Here it be folks, I completed the cover for a new comic book project a friend and I are going to try to get started. Let me know what you think. The title is just a place holder I didn't want to give too much away and I think our title kinda gives a little too much info as to the direction the story is going to go in. I hope you dig it, I pencilled, inked and coloured it so I would really appreciate your opinions. Oh and excuse the big copyright water mark, I am becoming increasingly paranoid in my old age, so I'm gonna start being a lot more careful with stuff like this. Well all that aside, thanks for the look.
Cheers my Dears,

Gloomy Gus

This character is a tribute to customer service folks everywhere who enjoy taking their shitty day out on all of us. I have another comic page on the way, the next one will be inked and coloured. I just doodled this guy to keep my chops up and keep my throngs of fans sated until my next comic post. Thanks for lookin' leave comments if you like the stuff if not leave a comment anyway I always enjoy a little harassment.

So Many Pet Projects

This is a screen shot from the intro of a little short I've been fiddling around with for a while now. It's not much, just a proof of concept kinda thing but I wanted to put it up anyway.

Almost Did

This is the second to last sample page I'm doing for an idea that a friend of mine is writing for me, after I get the next one finished I may finally be able to get my girlfriend to ink the poop out of 'em. Then it's on to another idea from another friend, man these pet projects tend to pile up if you procrastinate. As usual check it out let me in on any criticisms you may have, I'm always looking for feedback y'alls.

Doodle Bus

So I've recently taken to drawing with a ball point pen on my way home from work on the bus, these are a few brain farts that I can credit to public transit. All of these were done in pen, with the exception of the dude at the top right and the fella in the middle at the bottom. So enjoy tell me what y'alls think.

Some Shhhhhtuff

Howdy folks, I haven't posted anything in a while and so I don't sink back into the habit of not posting anything for months; I'm dumping a few pen doodles I did on the bus and at work while my computer is busy doing it's thing.

The Cover

This is my comic cover I'm having a little trouble getting clean scans cos I'm using an H pencil so these pages will be easier to ink, aside from that however critique away, I always love to hear what people think even if they just want to tell me off. So check it out and leave me some feedback.

Farewell my pretties,

Up "DATE ME!!!"

AHOY! Here's a bunch of sketches that I did in my first couple of weeks in Ottawa and I'm finally getting around to posting em, I'm looking to do more design stuff so I think I'm probably going to try to do a few turnarounds and stuff like that but in the mean time let me know what you think.
