So … now that we have a website for our publishing company San Kessto Publications … our second job as publishers … is to publish a book.
OK – so, here we go – here’s something that we just whipped up
- I’ll send Nadine down to the print-shop to make sure they’re doing a sterling job with our book.
Hmm … yes … they appear to be doing a good job …
Yes … this printer looks attentive enough … good carry on.

I finally got organised finally – perhaps on the back of a highly productive year – three zines!!
(well – four if you count the one I did for the Barbarians in January)
SO – in the future – if you want to buy some zines from me – go to my Etsy shop!!!
Currently – I have three zines for sale!! – All $5- plus postage! HOW CHEAP!!!
- “I wanna be a travella! (and a artist)” – all the travel shenanigans of me and Nadine’s recent trip to Europa
- “Sleuth Zine #1″ (in conjunction with my November exhibition at Inglight Art Gallery
- Carlton Blues yearbook – the view from Tasmania (not many left)
Though if you’re such a lucky duck that you live in Melbourne – the world’s most liveable city, you could always ask at Sticky if they have anything of mine.
So I’ve been working on this exhibition for about 12 months now, part-time. It details my meanderings on the topics of spirituality and psyche in modern Australia. The work will be exhibited in the Paddy Lyn space at Inflight Art Gallery in Hobart (an artist run initiative soon to change it’s name to Constance), in the main space will be an exhibition by the ethereal and eerily wonderful Neil Haddon!
Sleuth Exhibiting from November 3rd-30th
Inflight Art Gallery
- 100 Goulburn St, Wednesday to Saturday 1-5pm
Artist talk at 2pm on Saturday 3rd of Nov, all welcome
As part of the exhibition I have also made the first SLEUTH ZINE which I am planning as part of an ongoing series emanating from the pieces that are in this exhibition and adding to the whole piece … which I anticipate will grow and manifest in different magical ways over time. This exhibition is just the flare up at the start of things.
At the end of the exhibition will also be a concert at Inflight ARI as part of the ongoing SOUND KLUB SERIES … this will be number 7 (the first being about four years ago now). Performing at SK7 will be Paul Haslin (Melbourne), Reuben Ingall (Canberra) and Transmissions (Melbourne), I shall also be performing with a very, very special secret guest … that I guarantee will excite even the biggest Hobart sceptic of experimental music.
Don’t forget that you can also PREORDER the Long Weekend in Alice Springs Graphic Novel which I am aiming to have printed and posted to you in March 2013.
The yellow one is a zine from all my sketches and comics from Nadine and my trip to Western Europe to catch up with family, cruise around paris and Spain and Berlin and dOCUMENTA and whatnot – highly amusing stuff. (Last night I also found two other zines … one from a couple of years ago with a slightly wicked story in it … and another from earlier in 2012 for the IHOS production of Barbarians as part of the 2012 MONA FOMA here in Hobart … I’m drowning in zines right now … I must find a way to get them out to you all.
So Nadine and I just got home from a smashing month in Europa – woohoo!! Nadine had some nice adventures at Boisbuchet as part of her Arts Tas grant with the Vitra Fellowship go and check out her stuff as she tells it at her blog Nadine did a lot of type hunting … a lot … and she came up with some nice little numbers (and letters).
I filled my entire sketchbook over the month with sketches and comics, which I’m going to turn into a mini travel-comics zine for a bit of fun.
