Weekly Book Wrap Up

Still reading War and Peace, but its a big bloody book lol Did manage to finish a graphic novel tho.

Postal, Vol. 1Postal, Vol. 1 by Bryan Hill
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quick easy read about a town founded by criminals for criminals but you can't commit any crime. The art goes well with the story, each character is drawn very differently, unlike with some graphic novels where the characters can look too similar. The story did start out really strong but then just went downhill. A bit predictable, and I felt it was full of stereotypes about criminals and mental health issues. *edit, I figured out what bugs me about this comic, while I liked the character designs, the characters themselves were just really one dimensional*

I had to go back and reminds myself how the volume ended, it was forgettable and wouldn't cause me to go pick up any more issues to see what happens.

More Alcohol

Was suggested these were too Scottish looking and the more I look at them, I totally agree so back to the drawing board to try to bring in something Canadian to them.

Of course when people think of Canada they tend to think of maple leaves, but the only problem with that is that the maple leaf is used on a lot of Canadian alcohol labeling already so can't have something that looks too much like something else already on the market. But now the design does go better with the maple beer idea.

I will probably move the text up slightly, I think its a bit too low on the cans. But I do think its a good mix up between Scotland and Canada.

I am probably going to use cans for the design but just wanted to see what it might look like on bottles. This project is going to give me more grey hair lol


A Hornbill for todays left handed sketch. Its a happy looking bird for once, but kind of hard to draw with that big curved beak.

#25 & #26 Left Handed Sketches

The above sketch is supposed to be Coot. You do sometimes see them here, hard to miss the solid black colouring, it tends to stand out when on the water.

And a confused looking rooster lol

Arm is killing me and wish I knew the results from the xray that was done on Tuesday, but earliest will be this Tuesday. One of the xray techs did say don't use the arm if possible. Which could mean a bad thing or its just until the radiologist has gone over the xrays, will hopefully know soon.
