Milo & Sam

Andy Brown has published a tiny book of me and him and our two boys
Milo & Sam when we all lived in Montreal and we were all a lot younger.

Here's a Milo & Sam strip that doesn't appear in the book.

This is the cover and this
little cutie will be premiering
at TCAF in May.

More info about the book here:

I got two new books (sort of) coming from Conundrum Press

read all about it here:

family portrait

Here's a great family portrait by my daughter Liz. She's the one floating away from the rest of the family, there's probably some deep stuff going on there… but, cute drawing! My family!

me abusing Conundrum Press authors

Andy Brown of Conundrum Press sent me these
two photos separately in the last little while.
He might have added, stop abusing my cartoonists, Ollmann.
Check it out…

Here, I'm ripping pages out Collier's sketchbook.
Draw that again, Collier! Not good enough.

Here, Chihoi awaits a roundhouse to the right cheek.
It's a greeting here in Montreal, buddy. Smacko.

what's wrong with me?

more Seabrook pages

I'm inking pages set in the middle east today. Seabrook lived with the Bedouin for several years, the source of his first book, Adventures in Arabia. Lot's of Kifeyahs and too many damn horses (not shown). Got a bit of dry brush going on there. I rarely use that, but it's a new year. Note the graphite and ink-smeared hand of a messy artist.

sinclair lewis and william seabrook

William Seabrook was great friends with Sinclair Lewis. This portrait of Lewis from a scene of them together in my biography of Seabrook is less cartoony than you might think. Lewis was a strange-looking man.

the re-drawing begins…

after completing about 48 pages of this new Seabrook biography, I've started going over and redrawing pages and certain scenes. It always happens that you get more in tune with the characters and innevitably have to return and correct uncertain beginnings. I actually like the new one a lot.
