Josh Santospirito, who adapted and drew the graphic novel, will be present for booksigning and a natter at the MCA shop.

Learn more about the book at sankessto.com

A strange and beautiful graphic novel about the psychological effects of colonisation. Craig San Roque, an Alice Springs psychologist, takes us throughout a long series of poetic thoughts and places over the course of a long weekend in the central Australian desert town of Alice Springs. He grapples with an analysis of his own culture and the pain which it intentionally and unintentionally inflicts upon other cultures.
in 2007 Joshua Santospirito, a psychiatric nurse in the Central Australian desert, came across the essay A Long Weekend in Alice Springs by Craig San Roque in a book called The Cultural Complex. Josh found this piece instrumental in reframing all of the seeming chaos around him and began to reframe the essay itself into comic form.

Available in Sydney at the MCA shop and also Kinokuniya, Gleebooks and Better Read Than Dead.

Coming home

20 Aug

SO – at dOCUMENTA we discovered Warwick Thornton’s piece – which was great to see, a little bit of home in Germany.
Then we trained it Frankfurt, and then we caught a plane or two to Melbourne then to Hobart … then taxid it to our house, then passed out.

And that’s the end of my travel comics from August 2012. Hope you enjoyed them.
