My niece made a excellent paper sculpture of my cat Igor and tho he would never tolerate another cat in the house, he
seems to have no problem with this tribute.

A couple of other paintings that hang in the kitchen by the fantastic Andrew King. I hope he woldn't feel upset at
these hanging next to a demon mask and puppets they are in a place of honour!

And hot dog shelf in the kitchen

Picked up the new edition of Cinderella with Mary Blair illustration/concept art and its wonderful of course.
Just wish there was more art or that someone would do a Mary Blair book like the recent mammoth and fanastic Charlie
Harper book.

and some Halloween goodness

More work, doodles and a walk the next day and I managed to squeeze in some browsing and reading on Dutch typographer/printer/artist H.N. Werkman, who after the collapse
of his printing business at the age of 41 began to devote his life to using his press for more personal expression
Heres a poem from the last issue of his avante-garde magazine the Next Call.

October is going to be a busy and exciting month, so for no particular reason
i thought I'd do my best to make some regular posts.
A beautiful weekend Alison and i managed to head up to the cottage for a couple of
days. As usual I took along some work but I'll not be posting that but doodles and
photos. Before heading to the cottage in Gravenhurst we stopped in at the farmers market in Bracebridge and the local diner.

won't you join me for breakfast...

this girl said this to Alison when Alison commented on how she liked her bike

On the road to the cottage
we spotted a fox. First time I've seen here. It was a good weekend for wildlife
and as we came across 4 deer and 5 wild turkeys. The rest of the time was spent working, a bit of sketching before we headed out to a new restaurant called North
which was quite good.
