The Missing Piece

So. Many. Pieces.
Actually, the Lego was the only toy that worked like it was supposed to. 
This comic seemed like a good idea until I started drawing the Lego pieces.

Xmas Parade 2011





I only take one 'out' as a father. I use that out for the beach, which means I have to go to parades (and the zoo and to fireworks) with a smile on my face like I am having the time of my life (I don't want to be the dad who only does things he wants to do - but I don't mind being the dad who never goes to the beach).

Star Wars Holiday Special

True story.  He subtly walked across stage like a ton-ton (from Empire Strikes Back) and then off stage again.  He does strange things when he's nervous.

Halloween 2011: Mariah Wins Halloween


Mariah wins Halloween.  This is a rough sketch of what Mariah is working on.  And even though none of you get the reference this whole thing makes me very proud.

No Dogs or "No Dogs"

Click image to enlarge

Well, of course your dog is okay...and the other half dozen wandering around?  Those are fine too.  It's all those other dogs, the ones not here now - THEY have to stay out.

The two big dogs growling at each other and wrestling a little - that really made our picnic special.

Who wants a Shirt?


Because I can.

I've had a Cafe Press account for a while and I decided to do something with it.  Now that I have it in mind to try this I will come up with some comics that will look good on a shirt.

Go HERE to see what there is.

Because I can.

Play Structure Purgatory

Click image to enlarge

Yeah, this was a lot of fun.  Well over 16 hours for three guys to put it together and we're not bad builders either.  The nearly three dozen missing pieces didn't help much either.

It is all about the fun..and the heat, and the lines and the who-cares-about-the-heat-and-the-lines-because-it-is-a-lot-of-fun.  
Also, the meltdown was spectacular one.

Disney Trip 2011 - 01 - the wait

Click image to enlarge

We just got back from our Disney World trip / visit with my sister.  We spent time in Florida and in South Carolina (where my sister lives) and it was great.  HOT though...Tarzan hot.  Did lots of comics though. I will be posting the ones that will make any sense at all to anyone that wasn't there.

Riverside Consolidated School Fundraising Comic Book Available NOW


Instead of making a give-away comic for this year's Free Comic Book Day the Riverside Consolidated School Comic Book Club has created a fundraising comic that is now for sale.  For $2.50 you can help support those people that go out of their way to help us.

To get your own copy of the RCS Volunteer Fire Department (for Alma, Riverside-Albert and Hillsborough detachments) and IWK Children's Hospital fundraising comic you can visit the three comic stores in Moncton as well as FolioBooks (next to "Why Are You Cooking?" on St.George, Moncton) and Cover to Cover Books (in Riverview). As of Wednesday afternoon they will be in most of the stores in Hillsborough and they will be available in Riverside-Albert and Alma as well.

To order a copy you can email me at tinglsco@nbed.nb.ca or call the school at 882-3002.

Cover illustrations by Eric Dyck.

Bunny Cake!


So, your bunny cake just LOOKS like a bunny?  Mine is made of Marshmallow bunnies.

I'm sorry my bunny cake makes your bunny cake look like fruitcake.

My Grandmother made these bunny cakes for decades and my uncle has continued the tradition. I always liked the chocolate egg nest in the middle.

The Good/Bad Week

Click image to enlarge

Aparently, holding the bucket and cleaning up vomit is a hidden talent of mine.  Definitely NOT an inherited trait (My Mom knew she was not so good at that part).  She was real good at making cookies though and all that other mothery stuff - just not so good with the vomit.
