Turtles for tumors.

Last night I rocked up with Darren Close in support of Michael Bradshaw who's been effected by brain cancer and the subsequent surgery that followed. The turnout was awesome. Many, many great artists donated original artwork for the show.










I grew up reading Calvin & Hobbes... so i was really tempted to grab this superb figurine.


A plethora of great Australian talent donated all this!


A really great show.






The gallery was absolutely packed, and it was really great to see such a warm turnout supporting such a great cause.


We all rocked up for this guy (Michael Bradshaw)... :)

STRUGGLE 2015

Congratulations to my fellow comics friend, Darren Close, for taking out the 2015 ComicOz award for Best Australian Original Comic Book.



It's an extremely honest and personal story of the internal battle an artist (and quite frankly, a human being) goes through.. The story portrays the moment one finally has the courage to do something worthwhile, and then the mind game that often ensues in letting go of insecurity and fear. Contact Darren Close to grab a copy of this great short story.  

(A great introduction by writer, Paul Bedford, and nicely printed too... through, Brendan Halyday)

Comics Meetup - Dec-2015

In case any of you aren't aware, the Monthly Melbourne Comics Meetup (held on the 1st Saturday of each month) has moved from the Prince Alfred to the Bull & Bear Tavern on Little Flinders Lane.

Anyway, the final meetup was a pretty full get-together, with the usual faces, and some new ones in the mix too.
