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?
Ringo the Ringtail Possum Mini Comic
Ready for the Comic Marketplace at Garden City Library on Saturday in Brisbane are my two mini comics featuring my very cute character Ringo the Ringtail Possum.
We have Ringo and Roobot where Ringo has a toy kangaroo that comes to life, and Life on the Line showing the hardships a possum goes through by living on a telephone line.
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!!
At the anime festival on Sunday I saw lots of cute little plush toys/teddys of cute little animals that I just wanted a Ringo teddy – so here is one, well an illustration of one 🙂
Super Cute Ringo the Ringtail Possum
Ringo is sporting a super cute look today as he is looking forward to getting inspired at Brisbane’s anime festival and learn about the Japanese artistic genre.
Cute Australian Wildlife Illustrated Calendar – April Page
Here is April’s page in my cute Australian Wildlife Illustrated Calendar which features Ringo the Ringtail Possum eating his favourite ANZAC biscuits which was my illustration for ANZAC day last year.
Some interesting dates for your calendar this month is Easter Sunday on the 16th, International Mother Earth Day on the 22nd, and ANZAC Day on the 25th.
If you would like to have a look at all the pages in the calendar please have a look at the full calendar in my RedBubble store here…
Sketch of Ringo the Ringtail Possum
Look who I found at Whites Hill Reserve in Brisbane – Ringo the Ringtail Possum! Well, ok, maybe he wasn’t really there, but he’s always everywhere I go haha! He’ such a cutie and brings me a smile!
“Sleep All Day, Party All Night”
And here is my illustration for this years World Wildlife Day, featuring Ringo the Ringtail Possum, Z the Sleepy Koala and Katy Kookaburra.
I have had the idea for a little while now of two panels – one for sleeping all day and the other for partying all night, as it suits Australian wildlife pretty well. So what do you think?

Ringo the Ringtail Possum in the shade
Even Ringo the Ringtail Possum is finding the Brisbane heat exhausting. Here he is taking time out under a shady tree.
