I'm in an exhibition starting today at Mooch in Manchester.
-
A new group show is opening tonight from 6pm with new work from myself, Richt, China Mike and Andy Prior aka DEAD.
It's on til the 20th of November and the folk involved have been rocking some madness from what I've saw. I wish I could have made the opening but with just getting back from Oz I can't get down.

My photos from Melbourne are actually pretty poor, mostly I was painting in the gallery and on the day I managed to get out and do some painting my batteries ran out, bonus. there is now a lightbox feature on here so you can view the photos above as a set without the pop-ups that usually happen. Geek ooooooot.

It was great to see the Everfresh studio, also cheers to Meggs for the tin o paint.
What I was pretty impressed with in Melbourne was how much folk get done, seemed like everywhere I went people were making great stuff, the first night I hung out with a friend of Ghostpatrol & Miso, who made animations called Tristan Jalleh, who made some bugged oot stuff. The second night i was invited to a leaving dinner for Timba Smits, graphic design machine who was heading away, hosted by his friends from Just Another Agency, along with the styling TwoOne and many more folks. I also ran into Drypnz there who was over to exhibit and paint at the Sweet Streets Festival.

It was quite a lot to take in, with so many folk having such high outputs it was pretty inspiring. Sutu (whom I mentioned below) explained his work rate of 16 hour days for weeks on end doing his comics and it was pretty mad, luckily he'd just finished a project so was able to hang out.

After the opening I had the chance to paint with one of my favourite Aussie writers, my camera broke that day so sadly have no photos.

I managed a fair bit in a week, mostly due to the Backwoods folks looking after me so well with Ghostpatrol and Miso showing me the sights.

All photos from the show are able to be viewed here.

whilst away in Melbourne I met Sutu, creator of Nawlz, an interactive online comic, it is probably the best example of a motion comic I've seen. He draws and programs it all, which is bananas.
We'd got pretty bevvied up and were geek chatting most of the night while he consumed Fijian rum via a hip flask that he assured me tasted like petrol. At the moment he is working with some folk to have the Nawlz converted to Iphone/Ipad format, why not check it out Nawlz and also his personal folio here.

On an unrelated note, there is a Barron Storey interview on Illustration Mundo, gan hear it.

Maybe it's the lack of sleep but I found this film hilarious.

Image 40

One of 120 images, a bit of searching on the harddrive and I found this collection, all the line drawings cut together here are from around 2004-2006. I've been getting work together for 2 exhibitions this month, one in Manchester and the other in Melbourne.
-
I have more infos to post on them in a wee bit.
