Canadian History Mini-comics #7 A Military History of the Indian Department I’m currently finishing the inks for this new mini-comics which should be out fairly soon. It’s about the early days of the Indian Department in British North Ame…rica and it’s role in managing diplomacy with the First Nations, when they were seen as valuable allies and not yet wards of the state to be “civilised”. Of course, it’s tricky writing anything about Indians, aboriginials, Native Canadians or First Nations people at all, one is swimming in the waters populated by politically correct sharks. I don’t pretend to be completely objective but I don’t see that as any reason to shut up. I’m trying to be as subjective as I can from my extensive reading of history. I think that one reason why so many cartoonists work in fantasy, science-fiction and funny animals these days is that everyone is so terrified of depicting real people of other ethnicities lest they be accused of racism. Well, I’m white, and for a lot of people that automatically makes me a racist anyway so what do I have to lose?

One minute at miniatures…

Here is my Arthur Award for winning “Peasant of the year” for finding the Holy Grail at Spamalot today and a polaroid of my accepting the “Golden Foot” award with Arthur and his Knights of the Roundtable on stage during the show. (See previous video entry) The picture is pretty bad I’ll admit, but polaroid’s always looked pretty bad I seem to recall. Standing left to right is Sir Lancelot, King Arthur, myself (with my Killer Bunny, Eric, who I brought to the show, on my shoulder) Sir Robin with Sir Belvedere in the foreground. I was not able to keep the Golden Foot but I did get a certificate.
I’d like to thank my brother Leslie for paying for the tickets!

Maneki-neko
Colin Upton Comics black & white edition
This is the black & white (or more accurately, grey scale) version of the Maneki-neko mini-comic.  This was simply done by shooting the colour artwork on a high def B&W copier…  and adding a price tag…

Maneki-nekoCloudscape colour editionThis is the cover fro the colour version of the new mini-comic which is a sequel of sorts to the story “Cat of Clay” I did for the upcoming Cloudscape anthology “Megafauna”.  The colour edition will have a very limited print run as part of a package for the Cloudscape Megafauna kickstarter.  Afterwards I will release my own black and white version.  The colour is liquid acrylic.
