Melbourne Comics Quartely: issue-1

A few hours ago was the official launch of Melbourne Comics Quarterly (issue-1). You guessed it... a local comics anthology every 3 months! It was held at the very cool Gasolina (Docklands).

The comics sold like cigarettes in prison.

Was good to chat with old faces and talent.

Trevor & Steve on the mechanical bull.

Neville Howard (the mastermind behind Melbourne Comics Quarterly), and his GoPro.

Comics, beer, bands, motorcycles and vintage kitch. What more do you need?

I shot all the above photos on my Sony A7 camera (with new FOTGA adapter) using a Canon 50mm f/1.4 Ultrasonic lens... I'm liking the setup :)

MAC Classic

I used to loath digital colouring on computer, but since getting a Cintiq, I'm actually enjoying it as much as sketching and inking  :)

Meetup: 9-Jan-2015

The first comics meetup of 2015 was held at The Queensberry Hotel due to our regular pub being closed for a few weeks. This place was an excellent alternative.

Show 'n tell.

I had a great time chatting with Colin Wilson and Angelo Madrid about European comics... Particularly the Spanish cartoonist, Carlos Giménez. His work is amazing.

The next Feb. meetup is only in a few weeks (held on the 1st Saturday of each month)... Thanks again to Brendan Hallyday for organising these. It's a blast... as always.
