Photo Shoot with Oreo

So, I had to do a bit of a photo shoot with Oreo yesterday for something. Turns out he's a real diva when it comes to posing for photos. Trying to get him to pay attention is well...you see.

Deer Editor

One of the Australian titles I really enjoyed last year was Deer Editor by Ryan K Lindsay and drawn by Sami Kivela. As OzComics had their drawing challenge on this week I couldn't resist even if I am excluded from winning smile emoticon If you haven't read this book then seriously do yourself a favour - you're in for a treat!

I wouldn't trade the last 12 months for anything in the world!

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!

Melbourne Armageddon Expo 2014

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.
