It’s been great to receive some comments on my Facebook header picture with my giant koala haha, so here are the pictures from Comicstreetau market place last weekend in Brisbane.

I was right on the edge of the market so was looking out straight down Queen St Mall so thought it would create some great photo angles of my t-shirts!!

I had some great comments through the day, and two seperate people told me my style reminded them of the old school Mambo clothng designs

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.
