Writings – 2014

28 Nov

In 2014 i got a little excited again about the written word … it’s been a long while since I put any written word out there for the world to see – since in the last few years I’ve become more concerned with words & pictures. Here’s a few things I wrote this year for those that might be interested –

Island Magazine #137 (print) – Translating Culture and Comics, an article I wrote which accompanied a series of talks I gave in Hobart and Darwin about the making of The Long Weekend in Alice Springs graphic novel.

Island website – Prejudicial Ink (review of Fluid Prejudice)

Meanjin website – What I’m Reading

My blog – Something i wrote whilst sitting in an art gallery – fairly spontaneous thoughts, unedited and raw – and nice.

Drums drums drums

I’ve been smashing away for a while now – coming up with some themes that I’d like to run together into a solo-drumming performance artpiece in the not-too-distant-future. This was just me jamming, recorded it so I could hear where it was at – thought I’d share with ya’ll.
