So my mom and I watched the Canadian tv show Slings and Arrows recently and quite enjoyed it! There are a lot of interesting faces in the show so I decided to waste some time doing these watercolor doodles of some of my favorite characters. Most of these are from the main cast, but some have much smaller roles — I just like them.
Characters from left to right:
Oliver Welles. “You’re talking to a ghost! Wake up and smell the coffin!” — Geoffrey Tennant. “You stay in the theater because you don’t wanna starve to death? Now that is irony.” — Ellen Fanshaw. “Oh God. And I’m alone, just me and my dehydrated chameleon.”
Darren Nichols. “Life is just fucking nuts, isn’t it?” — Richard Smith-Jones. “Darren! Everyone cries when they’re stabbed. There’s no shame in that!” — Maria. “Because all stage managers are pot-smoking lesbians, right?”
Frank and Cyril. — Anna Conroy. “Sometimes it’s best to just work through the tears. That’s what I do.” — Jerry.
Nahum. “I must confess — I love drama!” — The Mortimer Brothers. “We’ve never removed a head before.”

There’s a life across the river that was meant for me
Instead I live my life in constant misery
There’s a life across the river but I do not see
Why I should please those that will never be pleased
“You know,” I said, jumping trains as only a caffeinated drunk can do, “I always secretly thought you only had water in that flask.”
She smiled. The fog was rolling in thicker, thicker. “Sometimes it is, Flan. The secret is to keep everyone on their toes. Everybody’s got to keep guessing or you have nothing left.”
