Still drawin’ The Big Belch graphic novel


Still drawin’ The Big Belch graphic novel. Working on page 81 today, and mighty glad to be doing so! I’ve been suffering a computer glitch nightmare for about a month or so. Gaaaaa! Fingers crossed that this latest attempt at a fix works.

Two baby boomers, a parrot, and a French bulldog save the world

Will a major oil company’s greed and foolishness spawn an environmental disaster so serious it could threaten the earth itself? And can this horror be foiled by a most unusual team: two baby boomers, a parrot and a French bulldog, who take on this oil company to save the world? That’s the plot of my new graphic novel, The Big Belch.

It’s been quite an effort to get this project ready. I hope you will take a look at my Big Belch Kickstarter project. It’s an environmental protest that might actually give you a laugh too. How often does that happen?

New Big Belch movie


I optimistically called this new movie “I’m Back.” The way life goes who knows for how long. I sure don’t know. The only thing I can be sure about is something will crop up. It always does. But for now I get to draw. Yes!

The panels I’m back to working on – page 4 – yes, I know STILL on page 4… Let’s start over here.

I’m changing the panels layout from what I thought last time I took a look at “The Big Belch” graphic novel. Position changes in one for Maureen and Monty and Lorinda. In the other panel, I’m focusing in on Francois, romantic French bulldog, Sugar, his borzoi sweetie, and Fletcher, cranky pants parrot.

Yes – I remember now


OK – I finally got back to the studio and at least figured out what I was working on.

I don’t know about you other artists, but it’s a bit of a problem to keep a train of thought/creativity going through lots of breaks.

Love knows no limits


A little bit ago I posted a picture I drew of Francois, the best lover of a French bulldog in existence, from the graphic novel The Big Belch. Here’s a couple pictures of Sugar, the borzoi he’s been flirting with. He admires her lovely eyes and svelte figure.

It took me a couple tries to get Sugar right.

First try at drawing a bozoi.

This is my first try at drawing Sugar, the borzoi Francois finds intriguing. Obviously I had no idea what a borzoi looked like. ©2012 Kay Wood

Took several tries. Now here she is.

This is a much better drawing of Sugar the borzoi Francois is so interested in. She likes his flattery. Maybe Francois will get somewhere with her. Love knows no limits after all. ©2012 Kay Wood



My last post I reflected on our dog-eat-dog world. Later in the week I did a study/portrait of Francois, the best lover of a French bulldog in existence, from the graphic novel The Big Belch. And I realized that I’d slandered dogs. I don’t think they’re anywhere near as rude as our politics have gotten. Sorry Francois.
