I'll see you at Brisbane and Melbourne Supanova April 2011!

Come by, get a sketch of your favourite character and pick up a copy of 'The Soldier Legacy #2' Brisbane RNA on the 1st -3rd April or Melbourne Showground 9th-10th April. While you're there, pick up a copy of the special Supanova convention comic 'Tides of Hope'- full of contributions from International and national wirters and comic books artists with the aim to raise funds for QLD Flood relief. I was lucky enough to be able to contribute- see the full colour piece along with such names as Chris Sequeira, Chris Claremont, Jan Sherpenhuizen, W.Chew Chan, Stewart McKenny, Tim McEwen, Lenil Francis Yu...you know, I'll wait until Tim McEwen posts all the names this weekend...over 50 contributers and I'm drawing a blank :P http://twitter.com/TimMcEwen67

Also, if you're in Gympie from 5th April to the 14th of May, Griffith University Queensland College of Art is running an exhibition at the Gympie Regional Gallery titled "Drawing and Animation", showing works related to drawing and the procress of creating images (Traditional vs. Digital) in the realms of animation and illustration. I am also lucky enough to have pages from 'The Soldier Legacy #2' (pencils and final colour prints) on display for the show, amongst Fine Artists and Animators Paul Cleveland, Andi Spark, Louise Harvey, Matt Ditton, Chris Denaro, Xin Li and Zhi-Ming Su.

It's funny, I haven't had any illusions of becoming a fine artist since getting my first Uni degree with a fine art major (where I had to be convincing to let them allow me to produce comic book/cartoon style work for exhibitons), and someone scored the ability to have my work up in that realm again. Very privilaged and excited. I'm only sad that I believe the opening night is the same day as the Melbourne Supanova...

Anyways, I really have to get back to work (too many meetings and email answering and not enough actual 'producing') before my day-off is over and I'm back to my day job.
