Pluto can be found in the farthest, coldest reaches & Isn’t part of the planet family, though everyone loves him and wishes he was.
Pluto is the Jon Snow of the solar system!
Pluto has found a new home beyond the wall (of the family of planets) with other less-than-grand bodies such as Eris, Haumea, and Makemake- a rag-tag collection of cold rocks, misshapen and weird, with names from obscure mythological figures.
The dwarf planets are now the only thing that stands between the warm inner solar system we call home and the frigid wasteland of the Oort Cloud- nature’s ice zombies.
Capilano Animation Expo! We don’t have grad films, but we have personal art books! If you are in vancouver stop on by.
If you miss out, don’t worry I’ll post my art book online after :)
Would you like to see a preview of the comic I drew that will be on comic store shelves soon? Of course you would! This is some of my best work yet. And there’s a multi-page preview behind the link.
Comics encompass unlimited drawing styles, from photorealistic to the cartoonish to the abstract. However, one thing EVERY artist should practice is life drawing. Pablo Picasso once said “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist”, and I would say the guy is something of an expert in varying drawing styles.
So Cloudscape is offering life-drawing sessions, just to keep those anatomy skills sharp. Whether you’re a comic artist or not, the studio is open to you to drop in and draw with us. It starts on April 26th and continues every Saturday henceforth. Sign up and find more information here: https://www.facebook.com/events/522365641209182/

ugh ugh UGH ugh
If you ever think Vancouver isn’t totally racist or founded on racism.
Surprise! Vancouver has a long history of being the most racist place in Canada. The Chinese head tax and the Japanese internment were moves by Ottawa to ingratiate them to BC voters who were demanding both. BC has the worst record on First Nations treaty rights. White mobs in the street burned Japantown to the ground, and white mobs in city hall bulldozed Vancouver’s black neighbourhood. The Komagata Maru was turned away from OUR port. BC politicians carefully studied South African apartheid as a model they wanted to install here.
Things are a lot better now than they have been since BC first became a province. But if you think things are ALL okay now, you clearly haven’t been paying attention. Think about this poster the next time you hear someone talking about Chinese real estate speculation driving up prices (proven to be false) or complaining about Idle No More.
Here are two of the final three Chinese zodiac miniprints I need to make. The sheep and the snake! Who are from Tibet and Vietnam respectively, apparently.
I guess I can finally share this!

Why Sansa Stark Is the Strongest Character on ‘Game of Thrones’ by Julianne Ross
JD has been saying this for lifetimes.
I have? I don’t remember that. It’s true, though.
At the beginning of the story, fair enough, Sansa is thoroughly frustrating. But by the point in the story where the TV show has gotten to, there aren’t a lot of other people worth rooting for. Margery? Cersei? I don’t think so. I haven’t read the entire series yet. But I, for one, hope Sansa ducks and dodges her way to eventual greatness.
Very excited to announce I have a new comic written by Pete Toms up on Study Group!
It’s about Branwell a recently orphaned girl who ends up working with Pops a tough child cop at an orphan police squad.
Read The Short Con
This is basically everything I need out of a comic, right here.
