DIGESTED.04 - out now!



I probably shouldn't admit this, but I get all giddy and light on my feet each time a book of my mine is delivered from the printers. All new and ready for the world. It's not megalomania, but rather an exhilaration of something I've finally conquered.


The OXYGEN story is just starting to get to it's apex. I've started to hit my stride as the most interesting stuff is now being revealed in the story. It's the equivalent of having to eat your vegetables before you can get to the steak. It's also the stuff that I was most looking forward to showing visually, so the rest OXYGEN is going to be a lot of fun for me to put down on paper.


There's also the conclusion of the MINIMUM HOURS short story, as well as another two short stories after that. At the very back of this issue I ask some local comics people an important question.

DIGESTED.04 is now available to buy for a measly $5 note on my website and my publisher's website (Gestalt Publishing). It will also be officially lauched in a month at the BIG ARSE Comic Book Launch #1 in Melbourne (details in previous post below) where, if you can wait that long, you will be able to get a free sketch from me on the inside cover!

One BIG ARSE book launch!



Count 'em... NINE new books launched on the night! And if that wasn't enough, all the writers and artists of the books (myself included), will be there to sign or do a sketch in every book sold. If you're in Melbourne on the 19th Feb, then you'd have to be crazy to miss this!

See you there.

UPDATE: The ever so generous Gary Chaloner has put up a little something on The Comics Journal news board for this event. Thanks Gaz!

Small victories.

Finished artwork for the penciled page shown below. It'll be in the next issue of DIGESTED. The three pager has all been inked and now I'm just adding a simple grey tone to each page (like below) before I finally letter them.

An inked panel.

Finished inking the previous penciled page. Here's a close up of the last panel (inked). I used my studio as the model. Hey, go with what you know right?

A penciled page

This last week I've had one of those stiff necks where you can't turn your head. It was probably a combination of being stupid at the gym, and sleeping wrongly. It's only in the last day that I've been able to actually sit down with a pencil without screaming in pain.

I penciled this page today during my lunch break at work.



... Now to ink it.

January meetup

The monthly meet-ups are usually held on the first Saturday of each month, but since January's first Saturday was on the 1st, it's been moved to the second Saturday (this time only).

Details are:

A facelift

As you can see, I've pumped some Botox into this old hag... Just so the experience of flicking between this blog and my website aren't so different.

T.Rex!

Brian Biggs is one of my influences, so I got a buzz in seeing his recenlty published T.REX! Golden Book on sale at my local Coles supermarket.



Yeah, ok... so I'm doing a pitiful job in hiding my Batman t-shirt with the book.

Read more about the T.Rex's incarnation on Brian's blog.
