This is the halfway point in my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project. It is turning out quite well and I think I'll be able to wrap it up in the next month or so.
Thanks to everybody who checks my stuff out and a special shout out to Brazilian people who seem to dig my stuff. You Rock.

So I got involved in the collaboration project called "Doodle Swap" at the same time I also got involved in the Sketchbook Project. As you all know I've been very gung ho about the SB project so much so I forgot to participate in the doodle swap. Well I kind of screwed things up for 9 other people who were expecting doodles from me. I didn't even remember until I got an email from the project coordinator asking me where my doodles were, and that they were 25 days late.
I feel like an ass.
In the case of non business related projects I'm a firm believer in better late than never. So here are 9 doodles of a monkey and a banana. These puppies will soon be in the mail with an apology from myself for not keeping track of what projects I have on the go.

This is a gathering of things I was eating and looking at at Sushi Gen, a sushi joint across the street from where I work. It has since come under new management and was originally called Sushi 101. I don't often have the cash to go there but when I do I enjoy it very much.
I just got back from a great trip to Ottawa to visit my sister. She and her family of which there are many showed Beth, Lily and I a great time. There was running in the morning, museums and parks in the afternoon and great food and beer in the evenings. A great time was had by all. Now it is back to sketching, working and renovating.

A take on the line from Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood". The line goes something like this, "Rise and Rise again until lambs become lions." I thought this was a funny visual and it worked with the altered phrase. I'll try and post something in colour soon it's getting a little black and white up in here.
I'm off to Ottawa for ten days to visit my Sister. We have not seen much of each other for about 10 years other than conversing via video chat. I should be thankful for that, 100 years ago we would only have letters. It's strange watching your family specifically your nieces and nephew grow up through the internet, I'm very excited to see them all, especially the twins who I have never met.
I'll try and post while I'm on Vaca. That's what we hipsters call it... Vaca.
