A Is For Axolotl
Gosh, I hope I didn't already post this one. A gouache painting of an axolotl, the real life animal that most resembles a Pokemon.

Prairie Cat Productions Logo
A logo I designed for a small film production company in Regina. (I think he chose the white logo, it certainly stands out the most)

Still Life with Roses
I'm not really sure if this is portfolio-worthy, but I'll put it here anyway...

Little Witch Girl
Yet another children's type illustration of a little witch girl. (Sorry for the huge flood of uploads, I certainly won't be offended if my watchers don't look at all of these =p )

Triceratops Ring Toss
Another children's type illustration of a boy and his triceratops. (I'm not sure why, but I seem to remember that triceratops was one of my least favourite dinosaurs as a kid? Silly kid Elaine)

Hey, folks. Just wanted to let you know about a new comic I'm doing...Dustship Glory.
What's that? Well, Short Version, here's how I've been pitching it at conventions:

"It's about a possibly crazy guy who builds a ship in the middle of the prairies during the Depression...AND it's based on a true story!"

Here's some sample pages I've posted here on DA:

You can get a PDF of the comic for 99 cents here: gumroad.com/l/eMwG
Or a real print version for $3.95 plus S&H here: lookstraightahead.bigcartel.co… (Maybe I'll even throw in a free sketch & button, if you like? :V )
It's a really cool & suitably weird story...if you dug Look Straight Ahead, you'll most likely dig it. :)

Long Version: Dustship Glory is a novel by Andreas Schroeder originally published in 1986 that I'm adapting into graphic novel form (with his blessing, don't worry).

This novel is based on a true story, about an incredibly strange guy from Finland named Tom Sukanen, who settled in Saskatchewan during the Depression and built a large ocean-going steamship in the middle of the prairies, hundreds of miles from any ocean.

To this day…no one really knows why. Not to sail back to Finland - a Cunard Line ticket would have gotten him there in less than a month for $88. And, this being the Depression, when everyone was struggling to keep their farms and grow something - anything - everybody thought he was a nutcase.

…or was he? He genuinely seemed to know what he was doing, and he also built a number of other inventions, including a machine that puffed wheat, a sled with a motor (before such a thing existed), and a clock powered by falling drops of water.

The genius of this story is that YOU REALLY ROOT FOR THE GUY, BECAUSE HE WORKS SO DAMN HARD ALL THE TIME…and gets no respect, because the thing he works so damn hard on is a Pointless Passion Project (and he also really lacks social skills). Yeah...I...can...sorta relate to that.

Once again, if this all sounds cool, get the PDF here: gumroad.com/l/eMwG
Or the real print version here: lookstraightahead.bigcartel.co…
(Saskatoon folks - and I know there are a couple of you here - can get the print version from all 4 comic stores in town)

I'm really excited about this comic and I hope you'll consider tossing a dollar my way...much love!! :aww:
