Supanova!

I'm getting a table in Artists Alley at this year's Supanova comic expo in Sydney at the end of this month- it'll be my first showing there(!). I'll be sharing it with the talented Mr Greg Holfeld and Pawel where I'll be selling mini comics galore and promo stuff to go with. I'm printing up the collected run of my newspaper 3 panel funny Kookabarry, a promo mini comic of Uncle Silas and the complete Beanboy- all the completed comics I've ever done as well as background art, model sheets, sketches, and whatever other dross I can possibly find without boring anyone to tears.

The Uncle Silas mini comic promo I'm printing up to help pay my colourist Tom Brown who's helping me on the graphic novel I'm doing for Dark Horse. Tom's working like a slave horse making my life easier! The mini has the first 24 pages in eye searing black and white, is printed on 100% recycled paper and weighs in at a featherlight $5 Aus.
I dare anyone to flick through those pages and tell me at what page exactly I stopped inking on paper and began inking straight into Photoshop.

I've just today received the postcards and posters from the printers and they've come up a treat. Full colour eye candy that makes me want to read the finished graphic novel. If only I was more considerate on myself and actually have finished the bloody thing by now, and I could.
Here's a bizarre cmyk pic struggling with the internet...

Heya - didn't see you at Supanova. Or perhaps it was cause I was chasing my son around and didn't get a chance to look at much at all.

between the crowds of cosplay fanatics and wrestling noise, I'm surprised you survived the thing at all!
I'll give you a bunch of the stuff when we next catch up...
or better yet, maybe I'll just mail it out to you!
email me your address!
cheers
