Studio Moving Announcement: Cross-Country Train Version

This past month I've moved studio (and home) from coastal island life in the Pacific Northwest (or Southwestern Canada, depending on one's viewpoint) to the Great Lakes region. Making a cross-country move provided a perfect opportunity to travel in style. So we boarded The Canadian, VIA Rail's 4-day passenger train journey from Vancouver to Toronto.

Sleeper car cabins, dining car meals and dome car views made this a very memorable long-distance move (including time to doodle a bit).

The new studio is set up and back to business as usual, now located an hour west of Toronto (in Guelph, Ontario). Away from work at the drawing desk I've so far managed to find a barber, a bike shop, and a seat at a Blue Jays baseball game-- vital elements in a new home town!

The new studio phone number is 519-836-5647 and my email remains


Cyberbullying Shield: Protection from Online Threats Illustration

A Defense Against Online BulliesSean Kane Cyberbullying Shield Art Illustration This illustration was recently created for the Boy Scouts of America publication Scouting for an article about Cyberbullying and a national educational program called NetSmartz, a resource for learning how to keep kids safe online.

I arrived at this fiery solution through a number of sketch ideas:

Finally, a chance to depict a fire-breathing dragon and to work one into an illustration concept! (Perhaps I'll now earn the Art Merit Badge that eluded me as a young Tenderfoot Scout...)

Thanks to BSA!
