Early stages of developing a poster for NPY women’s council in Alice Springs – next up tracing and making it better and stuff
San Kessto Publications has published ANOTHER comic – Tricky Walsh the art-machine has churned out issue 2 of Hoppers, her incredibly large planet engulfing saga involving a train … that you just gotta sit on, until it crosses the planet and drops you back where you got on … damn … and it’s slow … really bloody slow.
So stoked – for Xmas you can buy 3 DOWN THERE TasComix for the price of 2 – including both Hoppers issues + Blood and Bone. Click on the poster below – YAY! Will ship immediately so you get it before Christmas and can chuck it under your tree …
In 2014 i got a little excited again about the written word … it’s been a long while since I put any written word out there for the world to see – since in the last few years I’ve become more concerned with words & pictures. Here’s a few things I wrote this year for those that might be interested -
Island Magazine #137 (print) – Translating Culture and Comics, an article I wrote which accompanied a series of talks I gave in Hobart and Darwin about the making of The Long Weekend in Alice Springs graphic novel.
Island website – Prejudicial Ink (review of Fluid Prejudice)
Meanjin website – What I’m Reading
My blog – Something i wrote whilst sitting in an art gallery – fairly spontaneous thoughts, unedited and raw – and nice.
I’ve been smashing away for a while now – coming up with some themes that I’d like to run together into a solo-drumming performance artpiece in the not-too-distant-future. This was just me jamming, recorded it so I could hear where it was at – thought I’d share with ya’ll.
We have recently managed to find time to record Craig’s narrations (much thanks to Ross Muir at Reddirt Records in Alice Springs for taking the time to do this) and put them to animations of some of the art from the graphic novel. Have a looksee at what we got down here!!
