Comics meetup 06.12.14

Well, another year has passed, and it was time for the last meetup of the year... and what a turnout it was! I think 40-50 people showed up.








David Blummenstein & Jason Franks.










Darren Close & Paul Bedford.


Henry Pop.










Colin Wilson's French graphic novel 'Wonderball'. Even though I couldn't understand a word of it, it was pretty clear to follow the sequential flow of his masterful artwork.


It's really obvious to see the differences between US vs European sensibilities when it comes to graphic novels. This book is really like being immersed in a movie.










Brendan Halyday.


Everyone was drawing on coasters for David Blummenstein's project.








Angelo Madrid totally mesmerised by Colin Wilson.





After the meetup, Trevor Wood and I went down to the Tote (Johnston St, Collingwood), where the Girls to the front exhibition was launched...




Some really excellent work by various artists.




One of my favorite pieces.






Trev's work... which was the only piece featuring a penis in this pro-female exhibition.


Loved this Freda painting.


Even Kane was there...


... as well as Lucas Testro.


A pretty packed turnout.
