Pics from the artist’s talk

20 May

On Saturday the 11th of May РCraig San Roque joined  Josh Santospirito for a bit of a chat with some interested people about things to do with the comic.

Interestingly enough – about 30 people showed up … which was pretty awesome. Here’s some photos by Nadine Kessler.

Sleuth Exhibition #2

17 May

Sleuth travelled to Alice Springs with me recently as well … he seems to fly off to all parts of the country, leaving no stone unturned … he really wants to get to the bottom of this malarkey: what the FYKE is garn ON ‘ERE!???

Below shows Ivan Brackic in Tenterfield (briefly). I am currently working on a 20 page Brackic story for the upcoming Tasmanian comics series Down There. It’ll be done in July.
