Mini Paper Trail

CGNZ profile Samantha Asri.

I don't direct folk to facebook too often but have a look and like Alex Hallatt's Artic Circle page over here.

Karl Wills' Princess Seppuku animation test.

Sarah Laing talks about her new novel The Fall of Light on Radio New Zealand.

Sarah shares some preliminary sketchbook work for The Fall of Light here.

I really like this comic by Gavin Aung Than.

Fiona Katauskas talks pictures with syndicated cartoonist Jason Chatfield.

Facebook page for Sam Wallman's Australian hisory anthology Fluid Prejudice.

"Fluid Prejudice is a collection of comics and drawings focusing on underrepresented and alternative visions of Australian history. An exhibition and a 200 page book will be launched late 2013, at Trades Hall, Melbourne."

Blood and Thunder 2 enters the Truth Zone. Part one and part two.

I haven't been keeping up with things but Paul Rigby's Gallery and studio closed after eight years of operation a couple weeks ago. Further details here.

Michael Hawkins and Sean T Collins are still busy chronicling a behind the scenes look at Justin Beiber's life.

I like these goofy anthology covers from the fifties where Frew's lead character The Phantom would interact in bizarre ways with Australian characters created to capitalise on the Phantom's success.

I figure if I tease a bunch of articles/interviews here I'll give myself the impetus to finish them.

At the top of my to-finish-pile, writing up the few hours I spent with recently passed Frew publisher Jim Shepherd last year. Jim was very generous with his time and shared many wonderful stories and anecdotes with me that i really should get down on the record.
