Sleuth Zine 2 is in the pipeline

26 Apr

SO – I’ve set about beginning a new publishing idea: that is, gathering a bunch of comic-artists that I like here in Tasmania and asking them to do a comic each. The series will be called DOWN THERE. Each issue will have a different artist and will be available from San Kessto Publications. The first issue will be by myself and will be available in July with a launch of the entire series to be announced in the next month or so.

So I’m busy in the inking stage of my comic which is part of my ongoing project Sleuth – I’ve already mapped out, scripted out, pencilled out – a cracking yarn where detective Ivan Brackic comes to Tasmania, the island of DEATH, on the search for a missing person who was thought to have been killed many years back – the cold case of Brenda Hean.

Just … do me a favour and ignore the spelling of Tasmania – I shall be fixing that up later on in the process.

This is Nadine Kessler’s exhibition at Arts Tas which concluded just recently. I have an interest in these concepts, there is some cross-over with my work and my art.
