Further updates 2010

Apologies for the absence, this has been without doubt one of the toughest holiday seasons of my career. However it is also a time for new beginnings and awesome new developments for example all new look and more new caricatures Iabcdll be introducing the first of many short films and portfolio slideshows in the coming weeks and bold new signage.

Spring Break

Just a quick heads up to all out there I will be appearing at Luna Park Sydney over the July holidays from the 2nd through to the 19th however considering this happens to be the coldest recorded winter Sydney has seen in apparently 61 years, staying beyond 6pm for me just isnabcdt viable. Be sure to pay me a visit as the booth takes further shape with all new pop culture and celebrity art.

Supanova Sydney 2010, the start of something new.

Iabcdm not what youabcdd call a die hard fan boy, I went to this years Supanova at Olympic park, Homebush, as Peter “I have a life outside than being Spiderman” Parker, to say I was somewhat conservative compared to who else turned up would have been an accurate description. The costume party this event inspires has to be seen to be believed.

I was there to network, gather research, pick the brains of industry guys and, of course, indulge the guilty pleasure of impulse buying! 

 I was perusing the stalls when I happened upon the local creators, Sydney and Australia wide based comic artists…Sigh, say what you will about the Aussie spirit when it comes to sporting prowess and just being one of those loveable countries that produces some fine movie stars and such but our comic book/graphic novel industry is an enigma. 

My Teacher who is himself one of the few examples of what a great comic book artist is and can be mentioned during one of our lessons: That although the “naive style” is a legitamate format for comics, it should not be a substitute for not being able to draw!” and heabcds right producing something that can compete in a global market with both style and substance is extremely rare for this country.

Watching the skies

Ugh, itabcds so cold nothing like a refreshing blast of freezing wind to remind you that although the sun is out the sky is blue thereabcds not a cloud to spoil the view it may as well be raining.

Needless to say unless thereabcds a dramatic change my scheduled appearance this weekend at Luna Park will be cut short to only the daylight hours approximately 1pm to 6pm.
