What Else Can I Say But Sorry

What Else Can I Say But Sorry

It’s been a bitterly disappointing for me this year, but I fancy I’m almost back on track. Getting closer to solving my intractable novel problem, which has so many nebulous holes needing plausible filling. I feel like I’m building the chapel when all I was hired for was painting the chapel ceiling. But hey, it’s […]

It’s Good To Be King (lyric)

It’s Good To Be King (lyric)

It’s Good To Be King 2017 10 26 1:29PM [INTRO] VERSE 1 Draw the card from the trebled deck And claim your prize You don’t have to get old to get wise. You’ve pulled down the Autumn Moon From the leaden skies Your thin smile is a pale disguise. REFRAIN 1 A moonbeam pierces the […]

Non-Musical Title: Conflicting Emotions About Sex

Non-Musical Title: Conflicting Emotions About Sex

I’m about to try to write something painful and honest. Bear with me. Like most boys growing up in the western world of the late 20th Century, I was introduced to sexuality through the pages of Playboy and Penthouse magazines. I was never sold on the idea that women were at their best when being […]

A Little Piece of Me In Every Part I Take

Okay, the LCBO-model for provincial cannabis sales is probably the best  model we could have hoped for, from our antediluvian political thinking. The problem is, even if they open up a handful of shops in town, they probably won’t carry all of the strains cannabis users (like myself) have become accustomed to. If this was […]

Time Doesn’t Wait For Me, It Keeps On Going

Time Doesn’t Wait For Me, It Keeps On Going

I’m in the middle of finalizing plans and such for a children’s event we’re running on Sunday. I’m also still sketching for Ian’s Ogre fairytale. I’m plotting and sketching out a comic for the Anvil. I’m still wrestling with the novel. I need people to buy a few paintings, so I can take care of […]

Do Androids Dream of Election Fraud?

This is going to be a short bit (I hope) on the classic Blade Runner sci-fi mystery. Okay, three things up front: 1) I write sci-fi. I’m not famous, but I do write sci-fi on occasion. 2) Blade Runner is my favourite film of all time. 3) I am a fan of Philip Kindred Dick’s […]

The Constancy of Pressure to Perform

I’ve been trying to sort out the novel. Here’s where I am right now: Make of that what you will. More to come. Lee.

The Constant Seeds of Doubt

I’m still trying to break the back of this novel. It’s the meanest book I’ve tried yet. It refuses to let me in. I’m starting to hate the fucker. Seriously. The first act is about a ‘school for gifted youngsters’ (not THAT school). So it needs a number of interesting and different students to make […]

Life, Actually

There’s a remarkable thing about the passage of time as you get old: it seems like everything is going faster and faster, but really, when you take it in perspective, it’s actually going incredibly slow, but your attention to life’s little details is both more refined and yet lazy. When you were a kid, you […]

And I’ve Often Been Told That You Only Can Do What You Know How To Do Well, And That’s Be You

Drawing a series of thumbnails to demonstrate my ideas to my collaborator/partner/manager/wife for our painting series, which I have taken to call ‘CYCLICAL RESONANCE’. I kind of dreamed it up as a collaboration between myself, my wife and a very dear old friend of mine, but she had to bow out due to a little […]

Marching Ever Forward

Well, I woke up at 1:30am and decided to start doing some novel writing for a blessed change. What I discovered in today’s revelation was, I hated the original forewords. There were three of them, tacked together and blathering senselessly. Amusing, but pointless. To be honest, I’m not sure this is the one, either, but […]

I’m Gonna Break My Rusty Cage and Run

Been just over a week since I wrote. Last week’s post was about Chris Cornell. Today’s post? Kinda almost the same, really, at least to start. I’ve been writing album reviews, and the one that I’ve been building up to is King Animal, the 2012 Soundgarden reunion album. I won’t talk about the review itself […]

Fell On Black Days

Fell On Black Days

#RIPChrisCornell I don’t think I have a long eulogy for Chris. He was about five years older than me. His death hasn’t been explained yet. He died after a Soundgarden gig in Detroit, which apparently he had really enjoyed. Yeah, I’ve been a fan for a long time. I used to say that, when the […]

When You’re Right, Everything Else In This Place Just Might Be Wrong

I’m tired. The day is barely started, and I’ve managed to do some grocery shopping. Now I’m going to sort out my tablet portfolio and work on the Self-Contained painting. I may do some work on Arcanna, too. I can’t really work on Sunday Afternoon Matinée (the mega series that leads up to Arcanna), because […]

Music of the Spheres

Goofing off. Oh, and in case there were any questions… Thanks, Lee.

Another Art Crawl Down

So, I was at the James Street North Art Crawl in my hometown (Hamilton, Ontario), handing out copies of The Hamilton Anvil. I saw a handful of familiar face, but mostly, I saw a lot of new faces, and wondered if we’d set up in a different city. Art Crawl isn’t quite what it was, […]

Self-Contained (2017; WIP)

I finally started a painting I’ve been trying to work out in my mind for several months. I plan on having it done some time this weekend, if all goes to plan, which it almost certainly won’t.      More to come soon. Thanks for visiting. Lee.

Chase and Harmony

I apologize (regardless of what my Grade 11 English teacher told me about never apologizing at the start of whatever I write) for not keeping in touch. This last month or so has been relatively quiet in Limbo. We haven’t sold any art; We haven’t had any art shows; I haven’t finished writing a new novel […]

Experience Everything As It Comes True

Welcome Back. It’s been a month since my last post. In that time, the site has been quiet, and then offline, and then returned, and still I haven’t posted anything. So this is my apology. The Big Novel is sitting open on my desktop, still not advancing. I fear it might be dead. I hope […]

This Novel Is Trying To Kill Me

The Constant Sea of Night… hates me. No, really. I have been fighting to break the back of this novel and get the first draft written for… oh heck, I can’t find the proof, but I’m pretty sure I started planning the initial ideas in 2014. That’s three years of batting the ball around and […]
