It's that time of the year for....

...some movies and tv specials that are fun to watch with family and friends. As the years go by, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation gets better and better. A favorite scene remains when Clark sees all his Christmas lights light up on his house.

A big beach ball in a concert hall

It always feels comforting to come back to something you know after taking a break. A few weeks ago I got inspired by an event my brother created, the "Montreal Video Game Symphony". If ever you are curious to know how a gigantic beach ball got to be the star in a concert hall, you can watch the show on Twitch for 24hours starting at noon on Dec. 12. https://www.twitch.tv/orchestre_metropolitain

Gesture drawings from the croquis cafe on Youtube, as always.

Baymax for a friend, part 2

After last week's post, I wanted to do a version of my friend's son not wearing the superhero costume. Here he is hugging Baymax! Warm-up gesture drawings from the croquis cafe YouTube channel, as always.

Baymax for a friend part 1

A new kind of challenge this week as I drew fan art for a friend's son. He loves the movie Big Hero 6 so I  drew him with his favorite animated character. I used Jin Kim's amazing concept art as reference for the pose.

The warm-up gesture drawings are from the Croquis Cafe YouTube channel.

Simon Boulerice

I've been wanting to draw this one for a while. Simon Boulerice is an author from Montreal. He always seems to have the most luminous outlook, embraces the wonderful things in life and his joyful energy is contagious. He posted a picture of him leaping in the air at one of his talks, which inspired the drawing below. Quite acrobatic! The gestures /warm-ups are form the Croquis Cafe YouTube channel.
