I have received my delivery of cute Australian wildlife greeting cards ready for my table at Brisbane’s Zine and Independent Comic Symposium (Zics) this weekend. I can’t wait to showcase my new designs as well as feature old favourites!
Last Saturday I exchanged my pencils for conservation tools and joined my new local Woolloongabba Conservation Group doing some weed removal and tree planting. Can’t beat spending time in the bush and being able to give it a helping hand at the same time.
So August is here and in the calendar this month is the adorable sleeping koala laying on a bed of hearts high up in the tree! To see the full calendar please click here.
Today I have sent out my August newsletter providing all the latest news from my cute little world of Australian wildlife characters. To subscribe please click here.
A couple of interesting dates to note for your calendar is:
12th and 26th August – Ace Comics Drawing Group
19th and 20th August – Zine and Independent Comic Symposium (ZICS) at the Edge in South Bank, Brisbane
On Sunday I had a table at the comic marketplace as part of the week long Mint Condition exhibition. Mint Condition is showcasing the work of local Brisbane comic artists at the Juggler Art Space in Fortitude Valley.
I enjoyed the afternoon networking with other artists and meeting the public and my koala greeting cards were a huge hit. Big thanks to Will Kelly who arranged the whole exhibition and has an awesome collection of clay creatures, and was great chatting to my table buddy Brendan who I bought his ‘Mechadore’ comic from that is a flick book of weird and wonderful fashion accessories.
Further to Saturday’s post of my long necked turtle eating pizza from July’s meetup of the Ace Comics drawing group, here are the rest of my sketches from the day. Some of my koala characters and random people who where at the comic book store to play games for the day. Also I am designing a tree for my August merchandise – stay tuned for more!!
You can’t beat a morning of drawing followed by a pizza lunch! This is what happens at the Ace Comics Drawing Meetup. Next one is on Saturday 29th – see you there!
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s drawing group at Ace Comics in Annerley. Had a great time last month with arty friends and we even ordered pizza.
Heres hoping for another great day socialising, drawing and eating more pizza!
Uh-oh my heavy metal koala character has been appearing in my sketchbook again… must mean I have a couple of metal nights coming up this weekend in Brisbane to look forward to wahoo!
Don’t worry – cute and friendly animal cartoons will be back on normal service haha!
