Dad's Birthday





Is posting this comic like throwing myself my own party?

Since I started going bald at 22 I really don't mind getting one year closer to 40 at all.

If you fail to plan you don't get to eat all the marshmallows

True story.  I did the pencils for this after Jack said it in June but it took a cook-out last night to remind me about it.  I inked it and here it is.

The Tingleys vs The Albert County Exhibition


True story, except we were actually in the car, 20 minutes into a 25 minute drive. I thought Mom was joking since she usually never forgets anything like this.

Good times were had by all at the Fair.

French Frye


True story.  Marie-Louise Gay is the author/illustrator of the Stella and Sam books (now a Disney cartoon) as well as the  Caramba books.  She was in town for the Frye Literary Festival.  She was very nice, but a good half of the room was there for an English show (that's my guess, but the looks on many faces, not to mention those that walked out, tells me I am close).

Some wires got crossed somewhere along the way.  There was no language mentioned either way for the 10am reading and since the program said she was doing a reading later that day at the Dieppe library I assumed it would be in English.

Oh well.  We had a good time and we got our Stella book signed.

Three Little Fairies by Mariah



Mariah got an animation kit for her birthday and here are the results!  It was supposed to be stop-motion, but we went another route.

If this isn't working for you for some reason you can go directly to YouTube HERE.

Not a true story.  I wasn`t sure what I wanted Mariah to say and I finished colouring it before I realized that I forgot to put anything in.
