Simon and the Sundial to be online comic

I met up with Daniel yesterday to discuss more on this project. Daniel has written out the story in scenes and we went over all details before we start to script it. It was also decided that we would make it into a online web comic although i'm not sure yet how this will be done.
 We'll be posting it in segments so i will post links when the first part of the comic is finished.

Sketchbook Project 2012

Last year i signed up to do the Sketchbook project for the Arthouse in Brooklyn. The idea is that you fill a moleskin sketchbook with a chosen theme and post the book back. It then joins all the other sketchbooks on a tour across galleries in America before coming to its final stop in the Arthouse libiary. All the books are barcoded so you can see who checks your book out.
 Last year i didnt finish my book and i blamed chosen a random theme and getting 'things found on resturant napkins'. The truth is though that i put other projects before it and let it fall to the waste side, but this year will be different, i've chose my theme this time around. My book is titled 'Fill me with stories' and i will be completed a visual story to Harry Nilsons album 'The Point'. I already have some good ideas planned out and want to merge a style similiar to Joshua W.Cotter's 'Driven by Lemons' and Taiyo Matsumoto's 'Go Go Monster'
 If you want to join me on doing the sketchbook project you can find out more at Good luck.

Art Exhibition

Last week 'Made the Newcastle' the pop up shop on Grainger street had a exhibition in it's gallery space showcasing local comic book artists. It was organised by Paul Thompson 'Tales of the Hallow Earth' creator and featured some great art pieces. I was lucky enough to have two strips in the display. The first was my Eclispe piece which i posted on my blog the other was the history strip i did for the Paper Jam Anthology 'History and Stuff'. The exhibit ran for a week and i believe a lot of comics were sold.
