Alright, it’s time for the Saturday Round-Up, where I do my best to catch you up on what has been going on inside the blog and out.
First of all, my Youtube channel has had a great week. The Dead Rising livestream has been going every day, check out the archives here if you’d like to see what it’s all about. There have been a few setbacks (read: Zombie Deaths) but I’m hoping to finish off shortly and see what’s next. However, I don’t just play zombie apocalypse sims. This week I also played a little of Minecraft: Pocket Edition. I’ve never really played Minecraft before, so that was a learning experience for me, but I quite enjoyed it. Check it out below:
#Drawlloween has Begun! I’d never heard of this event before, but I’m having a great time. The goal is to draw a different spooky creature ever day of the month. Check out my attempts here, or follow along on twitter.
And the comic continues, of course. This week’s Timeshare strip was first drawn seven weeks ago and then added to the queue. It is still my favourite so far, but please do go and check out the rest anyway.
This week’s Those Aren’t Biscuits Podcast got all serious, as we discussed the nitty gritty of advertising in public, then we bitched about Gotham and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We also discussed graffiti, jury duty and all the usual trans-atlantic cultural differences. Listen here.
That’s about it for this week, but next week sees the return of Fiction Friday and a new blog post. See you then!
It’s day three of Drawlloween!
Today’s subject was “Goblin.” Here’s my entry:
I have mixed feelings, I started and restarted this picture and I’m still not 100% happy with it. I wanted something more dynamic, like a goblin fishing in an underground lake or something but it wasn’t working out well for me. So we have this instead. It’s not without its charm I suppose.
See you tomorrow!
Today’s task was to draw a devil, so here you go:
I’m a bit less happy with this one, I think the devil’s alright, but the background is a bit sloppy. I’m most pleased with the shading which really completed the picture for me. The little transparent tortured souls worked out well too.
It’s Thursday, Podcast Fans. That means it’s time for another episode of Those Aren’t Biscuits.
In this week’s exciting episode of Those Aren’t Biscuits, Owen gets preachy about advertising, Jon continues to fight for justice, Jury selection is kind of messed up, there’s a surprise last minute announcement about Playstation Plus games, and we talk about comic book TV shows that suck.

I’m participating in Drawlloween this year, which is a really fun event for artists. The idea is that on each day of the month you draw something connected to Halloween from the official list. It’s a really cool event to see everyone’s different take on the same subject. I’ve included the list if you’d like to get involved.
With that in mind, here’s my ghost for day one.
I’m pretty pleased with it, though the head turned out a bit more like Oogie Boogie than I was planning on. Oh well. More Drawlloween tomorrow!
