Josh on an SBS interview with Magica Fossati
* I will be doing an audiovisual comic reading with music as part of the event. There will also be an exhibition opening of some of the art from the book which will be up for two weeks in the Museo.
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.

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.
