Here is a new watercolour sketch from this afternoon for the chaps at the cartoonist rights network.
This fellow was renowned poet Eminsecu who had all the ladies hearts a flutter in his day.
Unfortunately this shows him in decline as he was one of the best looking gents around about a decade earlier. Mental illness and probably some antics with the bottle took away his hunkiness.

For some reason I felt that Stephen Harper and company ( Duceppe, Dion) would look completely out of place in Paul Gaugin's Tahitian paradise thus I produced this.
Attempting his vibe in watercolours as opposed to oil and trying to knock it off in a day was challenging and the effect is not quite what I hoped it would be, but I guess the main thing was trying to get a good expression for Harper which I think is OK.
I can't imagine anyone more uptight looking and certainly someone who really needs to spend some time lying naked outdoors in order to absorb some Kyoto protocol insight.
