Summer Training Video

Not really training, it was more fun than anything, but heres some highlights from BC :

 

Chuck E Beaver

Back in grade 10 Art class, we were learning cartooning when I created my own character named Chuck E. Bevaer (middle). My daughter made me proud today when she drew a couple renditions of my character (above and right) :

 

World of Plastic

I am really getting tired of plastic. It seems that everything these days is made of plastic. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great uses for the material.
