no art, just switz

hey hey, ive been very absent from this ol blog & i forgot to post why. ive been in geneva, switzerland for the past month working on a short stop-motion short directed my claude barras & cedric louis. Last year they completed an extremely cute & dark film called Sainte Barbe. This new film is called "Land of the Heads" & its even darker, you can imagine from the title. Cant wait to show people it because it looks beautiful, & its just great to just animate, no other responsibilities with the project, let other people have all the stress, heh. im involved because of the great people at the NFB asked & i said oui! i have a week left here in cloudy geneva, the production is alittle behind schedule, so that means its on schedule for stop-motion & now working until 11 on saturdays is a norm.

sorry no drawings right now, im stealling wifi from a crappy connection & it would take days to just upload one pic, but when i get back ill post a ton of drawings from while i was drinking, waiting in my studio, & drinking again. also some photos, which mostly include drinking, see a theme?

**restricted**

some sad news this week, flickr has decided that since i can't "self moderate myself" that they have now permanently set my account to restricted. So if you don't have a flickr account &/or you don't have the safe search option turned off, you won't be able to see ANY of my work through that account. This obviously is a huge BEEOTCH, ive worked hard over the past couple years building that account & I really like Flickr, i think its the best place to post work, but now if i want anyone to see my "non-offensive" material i have to create a completely new account, FUCKERS! Why are people so damn afraid of seeing the organs we all fucking have?!?!?!?! especially drawings! especially non graphic drawings!!! ARGGG!

as you can see im alittle frustrated, sorry for the explosion, ahhhh, that feels better...how about some love? This was a wedding present for my good friends Eric & Robyn, it went along with a membership to the best zoo on the planet, toronto zoo.


when Sylvie was away in BC for 7 months, i was going crazy, you know what crazy im talking about, the crazy that makes you do pictures like this

a newer lady pinup that i did for squid & ink magazine, but i havent heard anything about whether its being published or not, so here ya go


a nice guy emailed me for a dino like the woot shirt, for a big trip to italy, i was bribed with wine

zut!

Blog: What?! Where the hell have you been?! Do you know how worried ive been?!

Dale: Im sorry blog, really I am. Life, it takes up a lot of time.

So yea I guess you can say I’ve been busy, I’ll try to catch up on things.

Sylvie & i did a music video for Lil’ Andy & Karaoke Cowboy called “Auburn Fades Away”. Basically we did the whole thing in a month, & we learned so much. its still a blur
>

Going back to join Kandrix & the very amazing people at the Calgary comic expo this weekend, april 26-27. Im super stoked at doing another con, especially one that I did so well at last year. Planning some new things to pawn off & im giving a talk/presentation about stop-motion, I think calgarians just need help with their insomnia. Well if you're around come over, watch me animate LIVE, & make sure to throw something heavy at me, but not too heavy, dont hurt yourself

We also went to vegas in February to check out the flower at the dam short film fest, super fun time.

Vegas is insane & boulder city is an anomaly; no casinos allowed in, makes the city into a pure virgin like town in the middle of the dessert. Want sin? go down the highway. we were down for the dam short film fest The grand canyon is retarded, we took about 8 million pictures that I still have to go through, it saved our sanity to get some sun for a couple days in the winter.

The flower & me have been featured over the past couple months on a few sites Drawn, crackle, fluctuat good people helping a brother out

Back at the NFB working on a stereoscopic film!! Details later, im tired of complaining… but FloJo did the paintings


ROY G BIV got into the panorama at annecy, which is amazing. Unfortunately I probably wont be going for a bunch of reasons, but if that one actually got in, then I wont have a problem getting another one in, next time into competition.

lots more later, including actual art

new year with excitement

hey hey, got back a couple days ago from the quebec north drinking, dancing & kissing with quebecors, such awesome people, forgot our cameras so no photos to share of the drunkiness. so with a nice segway, heres that new shirt on WOOT i designed a couple months ago that got released on new years day, not bad sales for a drunk new years day, almost 500 in 24hrs, wah?! you say, i agree. only 15 bucks now, but it wont be for long, if sales are low this dino becomes extinct


When i finally checked my overflowing inbox, i found in the spam box that the flower got into another fest, this time the pain is being shown in vegas! DAM short film fest woo, so sylvie & i are thinking of going, should be a blast

a couple weeks ago i was involved in another custom toy event, this time it was to raise money for Camion de pompier's manga & art book library, unfortunately the weather was snowy & snowy, so low attendance, but you can still bid on them in an auction on olivier's flickr site
So here they are, i even got my bro & sis to do one as well, i love having other artists in the family. of course mine are the ones that dont look like the original trexi's anymore, theyre a lot of fun cuz you take limbs apart & move them. from left to right, mine, mine, shan, mine, jaimie's


more xmas presents, this one's for my friend nick, gouache on a found frame

& one for my girl's sister, another found frame


BONNE ANNEE!!
