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!

If you like the film – consider buying the book! 

Aurélie Neyret in Hobart

26 Aug

I was asked by Rachel Tribout to be the interviewer for the interstellar illustrator and comic-artist from France Aurélie Neyret who recently came to Hobart to talk at an AGDA night. It was a fantastic evening, very well attended – and the audience gushed at Aurélie afterwards, which was great to see. A wonderful artist, and I hope to see more of her works translated to English soon. I know First Second are publishing the comic series – Les carnets de Cerise in 2017 – which is super exciting.

In conversation with graphic novelist Joshua Santospirito

Immigration Museum, Flinders St, Melbourne

Join award-winning graphic novelist Joshua Santospirito as he talks about the process of making a graphic novella centred on his family’s migration story from the Aeolian Islands.

In 2015 he published Swallows Part One which interweaves the tale of Antonio Santospirito with the growth of the city of Melbourne and our collective histories.

Discover the challenges Joshua faced when making Swallows Part One and see how comics can be used for crossing time and space. Could they be the ultimate vehicle for immigration stories?

Also come and see his exhibition on the ground floor of art from Swallows Part One which is an addition to the Aeolian exhibition currently up in the museum until October this year.
