Mini Paper Trail


A new instalment of a slowly forming continuity, the Poetic Justice saga, on Zen Pencils, Playing the Game.

Five Questions with Michel Mulipola.

Ben Sea, Simon Hanselmann, Blaise Larmee, Ben Juers, Matt Huynh (with Jolie Holland!), Thomas Toye, Leonie Brialey, Sam Wallman, Lunch With Friends, Tahlia Palmer, Tin Can Forest, Jacob Ciocci, Peter Glantz, Becky Stark, Amandine Thomas, Matt Bissett-Johnson, Mark Chu, and Alex Mustakov.

"Some of the pieces are ones I intended to keep for the rest of my life. Others I was hoping to sell to help get me through a period where I'm not earning very much. One piece is the property of another person, who kindly lent it to me for the exhibition."

Hopefully these will surface soon.

Possibly New Zealand's greatest cartoonist ever, David Low, hasn't featured on the blog yet, I hope to finish a couple pieces on him shortly and to showcase some of work.

Pretty much everything Darian Zam posts on Long White Kid is fascinating to me and in many cases tangentially related to New Zealand cartooning. This recent post on establishing dates for a set of cards showcases some beautiful work done for the Four Square Supermarket chain.
