Festival of the Photocopier 2015

Darren Close and I made our way into the city for this event last Sunday (15.02.15)... I parked my car, and as we walked down to the event, I had my 'camera eye' on and snapped a few shots...


I don't know whether it was the fact that the Melbourne festival was on during the day too, or that Sticky Institute stuck posters up around the city (telling people where/when it was on), or that they simply just advertised the event better this year... but this was the BEST Sticky Fair ever.

It was packed...! and beautifully air-conditioned :)

The beautiful poster for the fair.

Walking back to my parked car... cutting through my favorite alley.

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.
