Adam Goodes – Aussie of the year

25 Jan

I’m not much into Australia Day or political posturing, or hero-making – BUT this man’s admirable actions in the face of racism and public scrutiny moved me, so I say to all of us – this is a worthy Aussie of the Year.

A few things lately
- David Nixon of ABC Open wrote a very affecting blog response to the graphic novel The Long Weekend in Alice Springs – I recommend you have a read, it’s good.

- Also The Long Weekend was included in Readings end of year list of 5 best GNs (in their opinion) which is exciting.

- Most exciting is that it also won an AWARD!

- On a different topic – I wrote this piece for the Meanjin website

2014 is looking busy … very busy – I’ll keep you all posted.

Blair lives and works in Alice Springs – a local colour. He has worked for CAYLUS for a very long time and has been doing cartoons for a very very long timee. In May 2013, when I held the launch for The Long Weekend in Alice Springs – he came up to me with his sketchbook and showed me some responses to my work – the first one had me in hysterics … mainly because he nailed the experience of working out there so damn well … not certain who is going to get some of these cartoons … don’t care. The last one is about the local Alice Springs dreaming.

Recording from MONA FOMA

22 Jan

I played as part of the Hobart Improv Collective in an hour long relentless set – it was freaking unreal
You can download the set here if you want to listen – there’s a little Miles Davis, there’s some freaking weird noises – Pip Stafford harnessed a crystal: go figure that one out.
