Look!! This lost little comic of mine has found a home on the digisphere … indeed it’s on a map! Which is nice, because it, unto itself, maps out a route taken by a large female across the island of Tassie and onto the mainland. This piece is part of the ongoing Sleuth series … there will also be a new exhibition of Sleuth in Launceston in April – opening at Sawtooth ARI on April 4th. WOOHOO!!! In fact – the Waldheimerin will be at the exhibition.

I woke up to this article this morning – it’s a picture of ME.
An amazing review of The Long Weekend written by Ronnie Scott in the Australian Review.
What a coup for San Kessto Publications!! (Is that a correct use of the word “coup”)
If you can’t be bothered buying The Australian – then just read the article HERE.
Thursday night last week I flew like crazy from Hobart to Melbourne, jumped in a taxi with a funny driver to Readings where I met my parents, my brother, Bernard Caleo, Peter Foster and Sue and wolfed down a pizza at Trotters before running across the street to have a booklaunch – here’s Bernard in his white suit.
Here’s Bernard holding up a fine book that he is spruiking with all his mighty might
Here is an engaged and wrapt audience of book-devourers
And here is me, a touch nervous … but doing a better job than I did in Alice Springs.
Booklaunch in Melbourne – done!
Some images from the exhibition that is currently in Alice Springs at Watch This Space gallery of the art from the graphic novel along with development sketches and earlier version of pages and other bits and bobs.
