A little early to be celebrating, but what the hey, right?

Actually, this is artwork for the tshirt I’ll be wearing for both La Fête in Montréal and Canada Day in Ottawa, so if you see it, come up and say hi!

Happy Jean-Baptiste Day and a glorious Canada Day to one and all!

Cartoon later today, but this is pour tous mes amis qui marchent contre le Bill 78. Frappez pour la liberté!

Today’s Canadian moment!

Posted: July 1, 2010 in canada day, quebec

While all Canadians will admit to a certain degree of la tension between Québec and the rest of the country, we all know how much we would miss having each other in our arms. Happy Canada Day, guys. Here’s to smoked salmon, poutine, and that great Canadian beer for all.

La belle province

Posted: June 1, 2010 in quebec, wallpaper

A series that I’ve been meaning to work on for some time now — a series of images for each of the Canadian provinces. And since I’m in Montreal, it seemed reasonable to kick it off with Quebec. Saskatchewan, Raider’s home, will be next.

And if you clickie the image, it’s yours to collect. Just like that stuff from the Franklin Mint, but without the monthly fees and charges.

Canadian catch-up content!

The boys are indeed Canadian, in case there might be any doubt sometimes. These strips, initially done about a year ago, have been re-formatted and are included here to keep the blog’s collection complete. Just FYI for my non-Canadian friends, René Lévesque was premier of Québec from 1975 to 1986 and laboured unceasingly to make that province a separate, French-speaking country. The movement has had its ebbs and flows over the decades since, but I think most Québecers have come to the realization that the ROC (rest of Canada) would miss them dearly if they ever left.
