I Predict Success

This method also works when you are lost in the woods. Take out a pack of cards, start playing solitaire and someone will find you to tell you how to play.

Jacques & Kay: Familiar Part 2

Jacques and Turtle, as I said, should not be left unsupervised. Fortunately, Kay keeps a birds eye view on things. An ear on things too!

My what big teeth you have...

Don't tackle-hug a real wolf. They don't like it.
Thus begins the 'Once Upon A Donna Halloween Sort Of Spooktacular Comic Strip Spectacular'. I enjoyed doing this last year, so I will continue with Fall and Halloween themed comics for the remainder of October. Hope you enjoy!

Jacques & Kay: Familiar Part 1

Turtle and Jacques should not be left unsupervised. Jacques is too trusting, and Turtle is too dumb.

Changing the Words

John can play any song he hears on the piano.... but he never remembers the words...
This is the song they are singing: Heigh Ho - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It Never Fails...

Stupid Body! Why didn't I get sick for that 8hr meeting?!? I could've missed that, and been fine with it!

Kung Fu Fighting

I still sometimes think about taking up some sort of martial arts, just to know and keep in shape with. As it is the only thing I have is Wrestling from High School, and Zumba.
I also like watching martial arts films because I like to think about how I would translate the fight into an animation. I'm weird, I know.

Holding Out

Of course there are exceptions...
Also, I really love drawing the personifications of nature.

Don't Look at Me

I don't like people examining my face, and I don't know if they are aware that I see them looking at me.

Jacques & Kay: Sugar Rush

I looked it up, apparently some pet rabbits will get into people candy.

New Phone Procedure

It's not the iPhone X or 8 if you're wondering, that would cost money.

The Dangers of Drawing in Bed

This also happens when the nephews and nieces are playing in my room, only it's toys I find.

Dog on the Loose

*baby talk translation: "Grumpiest Little Grump"
I was leaving from my grandma's house, and quite frankly was more concerned about running the dog over than of being bitten by her.

Jacques & Kay: Mitsukuni is TOO cute

Mitsukuni is a Vole, and has problems with his eyesight. Crows have been known to eat mice, frogs, lizards and small birds, so I don't think a vole is out of the question. Unless Jacques happens to be there.

Haha, stole your spot!

You can get up for just one second and they will come running to take your spot.

Jacques & Kay: Sam Comes to Visit

This is Samson, the old bull moose. Also referred to as "Sam" and "Mushum" which means Grandpa.

Delivery Delay

This has been happening more and more often. I'll drink coffee over a couple of days to no avail, when suddenly it's like it hits me all at once.

Friday, 25 August 2017

Well that backfired...

That age where you know they will follow through with their threat because they don't completely know what germs are.

Spell Check

And if the keyboard is set to "Canadian" then the Shift key doesn't work the same.

Sway With Me

This happens all the time at Church. Not everyone sways but you can often catch parents and grand parents swaying in time with someone holding a baby from across the aisle, and they don't even notice they are doing it.

Salad Bar

LETTUCE pray for the birds and beasts of the forests and fields....

Jacques & Kay: Recognition

Pronounced Yoo-Tin.
I too am often mistaken for one of my siblings, and get confused on who I am when looking at family photos :P

Oh Hey, Water!

It's tough being 3. Being not yet One is tough too, but not when there is an unguarded water bottle on the floor.

NO BREAKS

I'm a much more defensive driver. I do this with everyone. Comes from getting your license later in life. And being high-strung. Mostly being high-strung..... at least I don't yell.....

Jacques & Kay: It Was A Dark and Stormy Night

Dark and Stormy Nights are for creatures that don't run the risk of being struck by lightning because they nest up high.

Aging...

I think my older nephews are getting pretty annoyed with how I constantly tell them how tall they've gotten.

Wake Up to Go to Bed

Olie figured out all our itinerary's so she could get the maximum sleep time.

Jacques & Kay: Cat Meets Rabbit

I imagine city cats aren't used to Jack Rabbits. They're instincts to hunt sometimes kicks in, but then shuts off once they realize that the animal they were stalking is actually the same size as they are....Usually.
Kay is thinking 'that rabbit is going to be the death of me...'

Smooch

Whether he was making the face out of shocked embarrassment, or my breathe stank. You decide!

Mosquito Repellent

The mosquito's and horse-flies up at The Lake think that bug spray is just seasoning.

Jacques & Kay: Real Estate

I really enjoyed making Jacques & Kay Comics, so for the next little while I will be doing Jacques & Kay comics every Wednesday, and Once Upon A Donna Comics will be Mondays and Fridays. I hope you enjoy these two and their neighbours, and we'll see where this takes us.

Little Lois: The Icy Hand of Doom

My Aunt Pat stuck her hand out the window to make sure her hand was good and cold when she did this to my mom.
That does it for the Little Lois comics. I'm not sure I'll come back to these ones or not. But I hope you enjoyed them all the same!

Little Lois: Swing, Baby

As this was in the past, it is in sepia tone. I haven't quite got the hang of this style.
My mom did not enjoy her time in the hospital as a kid. The nurses were not very kind.
The next few comics will be Little Lois cartoons. Stories that my mom told me.

Jacque & Kay: Name Calling

Jacques doesn't speak French.
Thus concludes Jacques and Kay adventures. What did you guys think? I had a lot of fun drawing these two. I may revisit this another time.

Think Fast Rabbit...

There is a big ol' Rabbit that lives near my work. He doesn't seem to be too scared of people, but he's smart enough to stay away. Unfortunately he's not smart enough to realize when everyone can see him. And there are crows everywhere.
In a few days I'll be going on a summer break, and as such I'm going to take a bit of a break from Once Upon A Donna. I need a bit of a breather from the usual day to day life, so I'm going to take a break and "recharge". There will still be regular updates, but I will be posting a couple of different sort of comics, starting with the introduction of Jacques and Kay: The city Rabbit and Crow. Then another sort of comic called Little Lois, which will be stories my Mom has told me from when she was a kid. Hopefully you get some enjoyment out of them!

Style

Having grown up with a lot of hand-me-downs and ups, combined with the artist side of myself, add in my body shape, makes me very particular about the clothes I buy.

A Boot

When I was in Grade 8 my Godmother took me and her family down to the States for a holiday. It was my first time out of Canada, and I did not know the Canadian stereotypes beyond "Eh", Hockey, and Beavers. But a lot of Americans I met introduced me to the rest! All in good fun of course, I didn't meet anyone who seriously asked me if I knew "Ted from Toronto".
Happy early Canada Day!
