Swallows Part One is a comic that will be published in August of 2015.

These are the pages 5-8 of it, set in Germany in the village that Hobart-based book designer Nadine Kessler grew up in, but most of the book is set in Melbourne. I’ll chuck up the next pages in a week or so when the PREORDER Pozible campaign commences on April 1 – when this website page will be up and running (not before April 1). The preorder campaign runs for the entirety of APRIL, which will help me out greatly with the money to print the books – some info at the bottom.

Swallows Part One is a comic that will be published in August of 2015.

These are the first four pages of it, set in France, but most of the book is set in Melbourne. I’ll chuck up the next pages in a week or so.

I will be setting up a preorder campaign for the entirety of APRIL – you can jump on a crowd-funding website during that month and preorder a copy, which will help me out greatly with the money to print the books – some info at the bottom.

It is March 2015 and I am currently finishing off pages for Part one of SWALLOWS, which is a graphic novel project that involves the overarching theme of migration, and how it shapes the human experience and who we are.
Part one of Swallows will be released in August 2015, and it will focus on my family history – in particular my grandfather migrating from a young age from the Aeolian Islands (North of Sicilia) to the city of Melbourne and, largely without a father, making a life for himself and his descendants.
I was thinking about his lived experience one night after drawing and “discovered” this melody in my thoughts and quickly recorded it. I think it will go on to be part of some multi-media adaptions of the graphic novel work that I plan on making closer to the time of release.
