The Long Weekend turns 5 today

11 May

Five years today since the Alice Springs launch of the most emotionally difficult art project that I suspect I’ll ever do, and also the first huge art project I ever did. Grateful that I stumbled into it, completely unaware that it would change me.

Recently I finished a minicomic called ‘The Tension’ which is about making ‘The Long Weekend in Alice Springs’ and what happened to me afterwards, which isn’t something that I’ve talked about much; it will be riso-printed in time for the Other Worlds Zine Fair in Sydney. I’ll have some mini launches later on once I’ve pulled my brain together.

Craig San Roque showreel

3 May

My art-colleague Craig San Roque just had this showreel made up by David Nixon and Fiona Walsh in Alice Springs, some of his big hits over the years. He’s done quite a bit actually, strange and wonderful fellow he is. Some elements of the live performance of The Long Weekend in Alice Springs are at the beginning.
