In The Burrow

From my second show.


My 80s illustration style.


Voiceovers are usually straight up – explain this, sell that. But here are a couple of more exotic examples.

I played the 500-year-old villain Rughal in The 99, the original comic of which was praised by Obama for providing positive role models for Islamic teens around the world. Well, certainly not my character.

Science Of The Soul won a Wilbur Award in the U.S. The feature’s premise is that there is scientific evidence proving the existence of the human soul.



What if Sasquatch actually have small feet so as to disguise their movements?

Words are important. What is more important than words is intent. What is more important than intent are deeds – the things that you do, but more important the things that you don’t do.

If your thinking leads you to a maximalist conclusion, perhaps you should keep thinking.

When I am in nature, it’s Pastorale as in Ludwig van. But almost everything there will be or is being eaten alive. That is the cycle. Somehow, we top this pile.

If we were living in a cartoon, we would be counting in eights, with a baker’s ten.

We don’t know if the divine exists, we’ll probably never know, but what we should know is that you can’t just make it up. And that is all that has ever been done. Even so, it doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not, as long as you don’t think it matters if you believe in God or not.

Creation is only as conscious or sentient as the things that are in it.

There is value in the moral philosophy of religion, and incredible danger in its interpretation.

No matter how you rub the lamp, it will not produce a genie.

Pferdgewicht – when no other explanation will do.

Governing in a democracy is the art of the possible, and remains the best way forward. Idealogues of any persuasion – right, left, whatever – are a threat to everything, including themselves.

Most of our opinions are a justification for ourselves.

People who are righteous typically derive that righteousness from the sufferings of their ancestors, their so-called ethnicity, their gender, their preferred religious mythology, etc. But we are first and foremost individuals – if it didn’t happen directly to you, then it didn’t happen to you.

If you fall for a conspiracy theory, it would be wise to ask yourself why you want to believe it.

Despite the legacy of its failings, legacy media remains by far the best source of information.

On current evidence, we very much need to teach men that it is OK to be short.

Authoritarian regimes can be incredibly efficient until the inevitable – the madman goes mad.

Depending, digital nomads may be usurped by cyber hunter-gatherers.

Humility is an act. Better to be self aware, to understand what you are good at and what eludes you. And the stuff you are good at? So what.

Artificial Intelligence – I’m learning how to catch a frisbee in my mouth.

The most talented musician that ever lived died in a coal mine at age 12. She had never touched an instrument.

Our greatest difficulty in understanding ourselves, individually and collectively, is that we are forever stuck in the present. 10 years later – wow, what were we thinking.


I’ll keep it short. I’m Canadian and British, born in Canada.

I graduated from the Ontario College Of Art in 1984. I went on to be a professional (i.e. starving) musician in the alt-rock band K. High points included the single “Sliding In / A Thousand Years”, which charted top 10 on college radio stations in Canada and the U.S., and the music TV video hit “Voice In The Bush.” I also had a couple of art shows and a few magazine illustrations published during this period.

After travelling in 1991, I ended up in Hong Kong and fell into journalism, chiefly music and TV criticism for the South China Sunday Morning Post. In 1993, I moved to London, freelancing for The Independent on Sunday, The Wire, Q, Time Out, The Sunday Telegraph and other publications. A lot of ground was covered, of note spending time with and writing about Stockhausen and his sons.

All of which led to seven years as the London correspondent of Variety. I could unpack many things from that very full-on era, but a highlight was being the paper’s point man for James Bond. In addition, I had a side career in voiceovers in Britain.

I chose not to pursue journalism further when I returned to Canada by 2003, instead favouring creative endeavours and whatever presented itself. I still do voice if it’s a project that interests me. I can be reached at xyz@erichboehm.com.
