Notes on Productivity
I've struggled with productivity over the years. At some stages I have had superhuman

productivity and at other times super slug levels of activity.
I recently had an important project I wanted to finish without it dragging on. I was tired of taking month...

Snowflake like method for writing comics
I just finished reading the Snowflake method for writing fiction. It’s a method of outlining a novel to ultimately help you complete writing a novel. I liked
the idea of taking a small germ of an idea and naturally growing into a fully shaped novel and ...

Where do ideas come from?
This is a question dreaded by anyone doing creative work, as usually the first truthful answer is, "I don't know". I have also previously said that looking for ideas is like asking your brain please and it eventually comes up with the goods...Which in short...

Comic Spot Interview
For nostalgia purposes I went back and listened to an interview I did at the end of 2010 with the Comic Spot hosted by John Retalick. I was bracing myself to cringe pretty hard at the sound of my voice, but surprisingly it only stung a little; it only cause...

Learning to be who you are
Last week I had one of those gob smacking revelations about my art practice. Something so simple but yet it had eluded me for years. One of those sudden
dawning of realisation that makes you feel really stupid for not seeing it clearer before now. Altho...

Pity to see that current day advertisements are still heavily pushing gender roles. This add was a perhaps a missed opportunity for the dad to be using the product in a new, unique and funny way.

Thoughts on drawing
I discovered this post from over a year ago. It's still relevant so I'll post it here. It's surprising how quickly drawing can quickly become a chore. I have talked before about the importance of keeping your drawing fun . I think all too often artist can g...

I haven't heard of symbolia either, will have to check it out. I'm purely focused on getting a static image to show without being too big or small or warping, as you encountered. you'd think it would be fairly simple. I believe I have a decent approach though and I want keep exploring it if possible. I feel like digital publishing has given me a new lease on my enthusiasm for comics.
If you're interested in exploring ePubs I would highly recommend the free software Sigil. I try to stay away from Calibre, it's useful for some things, but I find it tries to insert too much junk for my liking.

Introduction

I am an Australian Comic artist recently relocated to Canada, I have been drawing comics for around 15 years and in that time I have self published various comics, as well as contributed to various anthologies such as Tango and Conceived on a tram, and Dailies. I have also edited three digital comic anthologies titled ‘Chugnut Comics’. 

My comics are mostly autobiographical, I am interested in what might be called alternative comics, with subject matter that deals with real life characters.

I occasionally undertake illustration work as time permits. Get in touch if you have a project in mind. I have previously worked on a range of project from large to small, such as spot illustrations for magazines as well as larger projects such as a series of illustrated children’s readers.

By day I work as a public library consultant.
