 One of the most enjoyable things I did this year during the pandemic was to take a 12 week virtual class with Andrew McLuhan. Above is a certificate from Grey Area who is based in San Francisco, they're an online virtual classroom. I hope you'll check out their site. Andrew McLuhan will be giving a second and third class on Marshall McLuhan's Understanding Media book, starting sometime in March. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the effects of technology on our culture.

Because Vancouver Comic Arts Festival was canceled due to CVID, Deni Loubert interviewed me virtually!

I WON!!! Thank you so much for everyone who voted.
I'm so honoured by this award, and first I'd like to thank Conundrum publisher Andy Brown for his belief in a late-bloomer boomer like me.

My thanks also to my husband Ken for his patience, his confidence that I would eventually like comics and for his expertise in helping me make my own, and to my mentor Eric McLuhan, for giving me the courage to continue my educational Odyssey.

And finally to everyone who listened to my quiet voice and helped it grow into a roar, I'm truly grateful for your support.

In some ways I like the portability of working small. 
It's easy to fit into my pocket and take to a coffee shop.  

Every summer when my sister and I visit my brother in Ontario, we do a project.
This year, it was laying the lino... I tried to capture the essence in this postcard size comic. I posted it on instagram but this version flows a bit better and is also cleaned up somewhat. It was not easy working this small...










Karen Gillmore did an excellent watercolour demonstration in my class last week.
 Here's her web site, she has so many valuable tips about watercolour and lots more...
