Fluid Prejudice Re-inks Australian History

26 Oct

Another beautiful review of this Anthological gem.

“The very ink with which all history is written is merely fluid prejudice.” – Mark Twain

Review by Sky Croeser

Unlike most histories from above or below, Fluid Prejudice stands out as one that doesn’t provide a coherent narrative. Instead, it’s a dream-like journey through Australian history, haunted by the violence of colonization. Single-image cartoons jostle with longer stories, and well-known figures sit side-by-side with personal stories. Some characters recur in different forms across stories, shifting from the foreground to the background. This jumble creates a more radical approach to history which leaves questions and contradictions unanswered, rather than offering the reader an easy vantage-point.

Mimili books!

24 Oct

I’ve been quiet for a while because I’ve been slaving away on a great (but huuuuge) job for the Mimili school in Northern South Australia. It’s illustrating 20 kids books in the Yankunytjatjara language. I’m almost finished the illustrations, just the lettering and corrections to do next!! Phew!!!!

Here’s some pics –
