Hello friends. I have had the honour of being asked to draw the cover for Katie Hagele’s Cat Party 2, and anthology of Cat stories from her friends.

You can also find her cat memoir book Cats I Have Known HERE.
All is good in the world.
I’ve had the greatest honour to draw pictures for Katie Haegele’s latest zine about Christmas. We didn’t quite get it together to print it before Christmas, but the stories are lovely and sad and I think they can be read at any time of the year.
Christmas, time to get your melancholy on.
I find that there’s a lot of controversy surrounding the right time to take down one’s Christmas tree, including the idea that there is a right time. I see people’s frizzled trees lying on the curb as late as February, which gives me the willies. I have inherited my mother’s fussy, snobbish belief that the only acceptable time to take down the tree is on the Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas. I can’t believe I care about this, but I do.

In case you can’t wait for the Manly Zine Fair on the 24th of September, you can borrow my zines from Surry Hills Library. They’re so popular nobody’s borrowed them. They didn’t want to be selfish.
The latest issue of the zine I’m doing with the notorious Katie Haegele, is done and I’ll have copies ready for the Eveleigh Artisans Markets this Sunday the 5th of October down on Wilson St Darlington. Yeah
So there is a lot in the works, but still so much to do. One thing I’ve been working on for way too long, is the story of my fiend Elizabeth JMW’s grandparents during World War II. It’s a wordless sort of comic. And now I think I’m almost there.
I’m hoping to have it ready for the Manly Zine Fair, where I will be running a simple bookbinding workshop. It’s on the 21st of September outside the Manly Library. Check my EVENTS page for more details. There are a few more things in the pipeline, including the second of my collaborative fashion Zines with Katie Haegele, which will also be ready about this time. You can get it at the Zine fair or from my ESTY shop HERE.
