What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2012?
Starting up a little store room in my studio and printing up a new periodical DAILIES while pushing through my inhibitions of medium and painting some comics.
Who are some of the comics creators that you've discovered and enjoyed for the first time in 2012?
There's a bunch, best to get look for DAILIES 3 in early 2013 to see some of them! Pre-order one with me in January.
What is something non-comics that you have enjoyed in 2012?
Local theatre, dance, poetry, live music, graffitti, film, performance, art, happenings and all other things seen in Melbourne- we are spoilt!
Have you implemented any significant changes to your working methods this year?
My work is mostly about implementing changes I think...though I have almost finished my second longer formative comic story (oh I mean graphic novel) but the guys who asked to print it are no longer wanting to, so I think it will stay in the files with the other one from 11 years ago... or I may do something I have never really done much before and - ask for help..
What are you looking forward to in 2013?
More web comics, killer bees, and an event every month at Silent Army store room at 110 franklin street Melbourne city. Hope to see u there!
