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.
Buy it HERE
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.

So I’m running a zine workshop at Chatswood Library this Sunday the 20th of November. Not sure if they’re under the illusion that I know what I’m doing.
They also seem concerned that there haven’t been many takers, and seem to think that I may be able to get people in. The don’t know how unpopular I am. Poor things.
It’s from 14 and up, so anyone can come really. If you’re bored and have nothing better to do, come and make fun of me.
So you missed the picture party, but you have a chance to catch up at the Manly Library Zine Fair 2016
I haven’t made any in a while but I can knock a few low quality things up in the next few weeks.
Hope you can make it.
When: Sat 24 Sept, 11am – 2pm
Where: Manly Library Forecourt, Market Lane, Manly
So you can buy this hand coloured print and more this Sunday at the Magic, Pixels, Bubbles event this Sunday the 15th of May 2016. The Valve Bar in the Agincourt Hotel from 871 George Street Broadway, Sydney – 5pm.
Here’s some more information from the website.
A geeky variety night spectacular featuring geek music, magic, comedy, indie comic art, zines, board games and a bubble machine! PLUS, a very special CD launch for Meri Amber’s 90s themed album Retro Sherbet. Come in cosplay for a free gift at the door 😉
Featuring geek pop musician Meri Amber, comedian Trish Koutrodimos and magician Liam Power, the show will be MC’d by PatCat, the crazy inventor man who speaks at tech conferences and created the tech blog Dev Diner. On top of which, there’ll also be a gallery of art from some of the best indie comic artists in Sydney and zines from some of the best Sydney zinesters.
Get into some board games, food and drinks whilst being entertained from every wonderfully geeky angle. Be there and be square.
P.S. If you’ve got a favourite board game feel free to bring it along!
Get Tickets HERE
Or just show up on the night.
So I’ve started again. I still probably have a least enough protesters for another 20, but one zine a week for the next couple of months should do it.
Feel free not to buy it like the last 21 HERE.
Number 21 now available from my ETSY shop
Manly library is getting me to run some workshops in June on how to make street art. It’s kind of hilarious really, but there you go.
I like that it mentions that I started my bullshit arts festival. Which reminds me I should be doing a bit more of that.
