Tinkerbell by jorioux
I just finished reading Peter Pan, and it made me want to draw Tinkerbell as a jealous, chubby little fairy - as she is described. :P

So...  Did anyone else cry at the end of that book?  'Cause it seemed to me like the saddest thing in the world. :(   I'm gonna go cry a little more now...
Cooking with Comics: Goat Cheese Baguette by jorioux
Cooking with Comics: Goat Cheese Baguette
I decided to put together two things I love together: food and comics!

Please do try this simple sandwich- it's heaven on a bun.
Black Bile: Melancholy by jorioux
Black Bile: Melancholy
One of the four humors- and the one I'm most personally acquainted with, unfortunately.
This was an attempt to exorcize it.  It worked. 
Until next time, black bile!

"The melancholic temperament is traditionally associated with the element of earth. People with this temperament may appear serious, introverted, cautious or even suspicious. They can become preoccupied with the tragedy and cruelty in the world and are susceptible to depression and moodiness. They may be focused and conscientious. They often prefer to do things themselves, both to meet their own standards and because they are not inherently sociable."
Huzzah!  I found out my book Cat's Cradle : The Golden Twine was chosen as the winner of the 2013 Joe Shuster Dragon award (best comic for kids)!  I did about 3 double takes (is that a quadruple take then?) when I saw the results.  I'm over the moon!  :D…

Artist | Professional
I work as a children's book author and illustrator. Comics and young adult books are my preferred medium- as much to read as to produce.

I love doing color work on the computer but haven't found a replacement yet for the feel of the pencil on paper, or the look of pen and ink on bristol board.
