New webcomic: Pettyfolly!

My whimsical little comics-short-story project, Pettyfolly, is now online as a webcomic! The first story, Lullaby, about a cranky giant and an opportunistic forest imp, is a few pages in already – and the comic will update with a new page every Monday and Wednesday. I hope you enjoy it!

Superhero style!

hero bobby_smlYep – I’m a superhero now! Well, Bobby Dazzler is my roller derby name, which is kind of like a superhero alias already. And my sidekick Diggle is equally fierce. The neon is important. Very important. You might say it’s the source of my powers! This is a brush pen drawing, colored in Photoshop.

Happy 2015!

I’m back in the studio and finally giving this site some love – I’m excited to share what I’ve been up to over the last few months! Me and my scanner have been busy – expect plenty of posts in the coming weeks.

Problems with a Girl and a Unicorn

This story is not for kids… but if you’re not a kid, you can read it here

Earlier this year I had the chance to adapt a short story by one of my favourite Australian authors, Nick Earls, into a comic format.

It was a lot of hard work, but very rewarding, and the graphic story was published in Griffith Review 32

(print editions only! Don’t buy the digital edition if you’re looking for my comic!)

Format Comics

The gang over at Format are a good bunch. They run a Zine store / art space / live music venue here in Adelaide, throw some excellent parties and, every year, put on an amazing two-week DIY Arts festival or two. Last year they made a sort of yearbook as well, so I put these comics together. Words by Format Collective.

Comikaze: pencils down!

Well, I did it! I drew my comic from 3:20pm saturday to 3:20pm sunday with only a teensy-weensy nap. And I ended up with a 16-pager rather than a 24-pager, and the final few certainly weren’t as finished as the first couple, and I now look / feel like this:

… but that’s okay, it was a fun and rewarding ordeal, definitely worth it for the characters that emerged when the pressure was on! Go Dimby, Aga Panther and President Olgpen Rumple! :-)
