Swallows Part One – film

28 Aug

I’ve finally gotten the comic reading for Swallows into a rough film.
I stutter a few times in the narration – but I’m not terribly worried about that – I kinda like it!
Enjoy

If you like the film – consider buying the book!

The Comic Art Workshop

14 Dec

For the first two weeks of November I was taking part in the inaugural Comic Art Workshop. It was held on MARIA ISLAND off the East coast of Tasmania. Technically I was the only Tasmanian at the workshop, but Leigh Rigozzi used the workshop as an excuse to return from Sydney after a decade. So we now have another comic maker in our midst YAY! … and to make things more interesting, I met Eleri Mai Harris at the workshop – turns out she’s an ex-Tasmanian who now lives in Canberra after having lived in the States for a bit – so there was tonnes of Tassie action going on. Leigh’s Dad also works for Parks and Heritage. He came over to Maria and gave us a bit of a talk about the island and the nature and whatnot. Tony Thorne from Hobart also came over on the middle weekend and talked about the history of Indigenous peoples in Tassie and also gave a watercolour Plein Air workshop.

We had Leela Corman and Tom Hart from Florida come to be our master-comic-artists. Go to the Comic Art Workshop link for the full line-up of the amazing attendees.

Here’s some random pics!
