Bruce's exhibition

Last night I went along with my girlfriend to Bruce Mutard's exhibition at Monash University in Caulfield. We were late and it was a awfully cold night, but after walking around the University for ages in search of this little room, we enjoyed the last 15-30 minutes of it.


Familiar faces showed up to support and appreciate Bruce's hard work.






Love the subtlety of Bruce's work. Notice how the kids have simple dots for eyes, whereas the adults have fully-detailed ones. I like the distinction of what each would offer the reader in the story from this visual point-of-view.




Congratulations, Bruce.

This was the culmination of a number of years of hard work by Bruce on the subject of comics and how they're read and function. The walls were installed with a nice reading experience while one circulated with people and talked.


Brendan Hallyday echoed the appreciation of being able to see artwork in all it's imperfections of white-out, pencils and fix-ups. Creators love this kind of stuff.
