12 months ago I embarked on the idea of self publishing my own ongoing indie title. 12 months later and 6 conventions around Australia, I am publishing the 5th issue in the series as well as a limited sketchbook edition. This is such a great medium to be involved in and I heartily recommend to anyone who is contemplating doing this to seize the moment and get started. You won't regret it. Five print issues, with 2 already on comiXology, I can't wait for what the next 12 months has in store!

This weekend recently saw the festivities at Melbourne Armageddon Expo. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time, tabling at the Melbourne Comics booth, and also getting to participate in a panel on the Australian comics scene. Topped of the weekend with a few drinks with some very lovely fellow creators.

A couple of years ago I did a live paint for the rebranding launch of Red Bubble in Melbourne. Was a heap of fun. They got a huge crowd there and Jason Argonautilus of Luxflux Productions did a great job of capturing the night and putting this video together.

Guess what's just arrived! Issue 4 has come up a treat. Looking at the books all together I am extremely proud that in just nine months I've been able to release the first four books as well as a revamped second edition of Issue 1. :)

Was having a bit of a reflect back over my art from 2013 and the sort of stuff I got up to. A lot of Ozcomics challenges, A few pictures for the Dredd sequel campaign, a heck of a lot of napkin art, and I also published the first issue of my comic book, From Above. It'll be interesting to see what 2014 will have in reflection with now the third issue of my book about to hit the stores. Here's hoping this year was a productive as the last!

Spent the weekend madly inking Issue 3 as I've brought the deadline forward in the aim to have the book printed in time for Perth and Adelaide Oz Comic-Cons at the end of March. Here's a teaser of the opening page featuring a couple of characters we haven't seen before.

Over the years I've had modellers want to create some 3d models of some of my character illustrations and its always a blast at see someone bring your creation into 3d. Of these sketches my little steambot seems to have been a popular choice for 3d visualisation. The latest 3d conversion is by deviant artist, Kaladam: http://kaladam.deviantart.com/art/Steampunk-zbrush-429814178

If you had to ask me what what would be more awesome than getting to do the art on one of the pages in the new Gaining Velocity : Darker Forces book, then I would have to say - getting to do tha,t and being on the same double page spread as Dean Rankine!!! Damn cool!
