Growing Pain(T)s

Updates from the Drafting Table

Hi All! It has been a while since I posted to my blog and I really need to make it a regular activity. There is so much to talk about and I think this outlet is getting left behind for social media. There's such a push for social media; sell your work there, talk about your work there, build your following, build your following, BUILD YOUR FOLLOWING! Yeesh. I've gotten bound up in that trap a little too much lately. The truth that I'm coming to realize is that real strength lies in connection, one-on-one and to the community at large; personal, honest, authentic...

Honey Bomb Updates

Hi All! As you've previously read, I'm making a new game with my lovely wife Kit Daven and a good friend, Sabrina Scalarini. It's called Honey Bomb and is developing into something quite amazing! To the updates then... Our original plan for Honey Bomb was to have a working tester pack by, well, about now. Unfortunately, the artwork is taking a little longer than I had hoped.

Hi all! This weekend I had the renewed opportunity to exhibit at the Cambridge Comic Arts Festival, put together in a partnership between Studio Comix and the Idea Exchange (our local library concern) and held at the main branch of the Cambridge Public Library at 1 Queen Square in Cambridge, ON.

Even though I'm not a comic book artist / illustrator or an author of any kind (at least, not yet) the organizer of...

The Art of the Jam Session

Hi all, This past Saturday, Kitty and I and our good friend Sabrina got together to have another jam session about Honey Bomb, our soon to be smash hit card game! We got together a little earlier than last time so we had a lunch spread laid out and ready to roll. We like to eat healthy and seeing's as how we're all artists...it was time for nibbly bits! Once we got down to the nitty gritty we discussed card artwork, card design aspects, where we are going to get Honey Bomb printed, the pros and cons of Kickstarter and...

Introducing Honey Bomb!

Hi All! Sorry for the long delay in blog posts. I really need to get my tush in a seat and my fingers on the keys more often. My apologies again (oh, how Canadian of me ;) ) The biggest update I have for you is about a new game that I and two others are developing together. It's called HONEY BOMB (our working title although we are quite partial to it) and is a strategy card game for two players. The idea for our collaboration came out of a meet up at a Williams Fresh Cafe a few months...
