Short break in Melbourne

This week I had a lovely but cold short break in Melbourne, and took some photos of what inspired my arty side, which included AC/DC Lane, the Zine exhibition at the State Library, and sketching time at the Royal Botanic Gardens.

The highlight for me though was the Wallace and Gromit exhibition and once Ive sorted through my many pictures I will post those at the weekend.

Here are the first lots of photos that I have posted into my Facebook page:

Here are a few photos of my table at the zine marketplace as part of the Queensland Poetry Festival this weekend.  It was great to interact with so many creative people in Brisbane and to showcase my mini comics and greeting cards featuring possums, koalas and other cute Australian wildlife.

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.

Here’s a selection of photos of my table from yesterday’s Comic Marketplace event at Garden City Library in Brisbane.

I thought I’d draw some Ringo and Koalas on the back of business cards, some of my awesome t-shirts, cute greeting cards and Ringo mini comics.

Did you visit the event yesterday?

It was a really nice morning… sold a few things and networked with some awesome creatives.

Instead of writing one big blog post about it I will break it down and write a bout a few different things over the next few days… so please come back to have a read..  🙂

Ace Comics June Meetup

On Saturday I joined the Ace Comics drawing group in Annerley.  This was the first time I went to this and was great to meet other illustrators, including people I’d met before at expos.

I drew two pages.  One included Ringo the Ringtail Possum and other characters of mine, but after we ordered pizza for lunch, I soon got in to a turtles mode and created the Australian version – Teenage Mutant Ninja Long Necked Turtles!!
