Love Your Pet Day (…really?)

KillbearI have never heard of Love Your Pet Day but there ya go. (Makes you wonder why there needs to be a reminder)

Yesterday, Relic and I drove out to Killbear Provincial Park for a snowshoe around Kilcoursie Bay. We’ve had a humdinger of a Winter here so there is a thick layer of ice on the Georgian Bay. You can pretty much walk anywhere you want…so island hopping is the way to go!

Late New Year Post…

Happy New Year!

Snowmobile trails on Georgian Bay, January 2014

Snowmobile trails on Georgian Bay, January 2014

Heh, heh…okay, I’m really late on that one. I was really bad on updating this blog before the Christmas break and I was resolved to start a new posting schedule on January first…and we all know how well that worked out. The Winter around here has been one snowstorm after another and absolutely bone chilling temperatures. Not that that’s an excuse but keeping the wood stove stocked seems to be the only thing I kept on schedule.* However, let’s get back on track here…

First Birthday

Relic1yearHard to believe but Relic turned a year old today. He didn’t seem too preoccupied with the milestone. We went for a run in the October drizzle and then stopped in for a new pair of Keens (to replace the old leaking pair I had on) and picked up a rawhide chew to celebrate (the fire was to dry off) Not a bad way to spend a birthday.

Seven Years!

SevenYearsThat’s right…Bleeker launched online 7 years ago this week……s-seven?….yowza!  The little guy sure packs a long lasting battery!

In July 2006, after months of drawing and writing I decided to post Bleeker (then called Hoover) online. It was my first web comic and I wasn’t sure what to expect…from the readers and from myself. I remember saying that I’d give it six months and see what happens. This would be the first time I stuck to a daily posting schedule and the first time I would get immediate feedback. Both kinda frightening but so was sticking them in a drawer for no one to ever see. I knew right away that it was smarter to get them out in front of people instead of tinkering away with it by myself. By October I could tell that the characters had taken on a life of their own and I had hit a groove.

3D Printed Bleeker Bot!

BleekPrint1I’ve always wanted to have 3D version of Bleeker. Back when I first started sketching him, I thought a lot about how he would move and go together. Even though no real life robot moves like Bleeker (…yet) I wanted his components to all work and move in a believable way. By the time I was done and I had the character you see today, I could visualize a working BLKR-501 model. I have played around with clay models and converting tin cans (I even found a kitchen garbage can that had the right proportions and lid) but they always had that cobbled together look.
