MOFO 2016
I am VERY excited to tell you all that my 2013 award-winning graphic novel The Long Weekend in Alice Springs is going into it’s THIRD print run (holy smokes)
…. and I will be performing it … yes, you read right … me and Craig San Roque will be doing a performance of excerpts from the graphic novel in January as part of MOFO, Hobart’s amazing music and art festival. Three small performances at Cinemona, and one absolutely HUGE one at the Odeon Theatre to a humungous crowd. Hopefully that crowd buys some copies of the third print-run so I can cover the costs of printing it (yikes!)
It has been announced today on the MOFO website.
Thanks to you all for your ongoing support of all my projects, none of which would be possible without you (seriously)

Poster available now

6 Oct

The final arresting image of the graphic novel The Long Weekend in Alice Springs is the exposed dreaming of Mt Gillen that stands on the edge of the desert town of Alice Springs. It’s psychic influence radiating through the town quietly, continuously.

This A3 poster print is now available to buy for $20 + postage from San Kessto Publications

Alice Springs Eye of the Storm Festival

15 Sep


So I have returned to Alice Springs – I am currently writing this from a four-poster bed with a mozzie net in the backyard of Craig San Roque on East Side. I haven’t been in Alice since the launch of The Long Weekend in Alice Springs – back in May 2013. It really is bloody lovely to be back, I have a strangely home-like connection with this town.

At the festival I’ll be doing several things, the biggest is the presentation of Swallows and The Long Weekend at the “Drawing Story” event at 3pm on Saturday, but you can check out all the other things at the PROGRAM PAGE.
