Life is too short to be holding on to old grudges
working on a new comic for S.A.D, a new risograph edition curated by Calm & Collected and featuring lots of great artists, due to launch early next year.
You can find out more info / view the progress here!
This is the first part of an incomplete comic I wrote for Brisbane’s local Ashcan Comics about two years ago. There’s too much cussing and not enough story detail, but I’m happy with the full first issue, which is sitting in my celtx account.
In the future, commercial miners in the solar system use Jupiter’s moon of Callisto’s space port as basically King’s Cross ten years ago. A loophole in governance makes Callisto’s small settlement run by perverted gangsters, and a bar waitress finds a mysteriously discarded particle physics project that might allow her to fuck stuff up.
Brisbane artist Dannikah Harrison is behind the art.
Two pages from my new comic Herman the Elder. A documentary film-maker reveals a softer side to the most feared beast in all of Mount Moldy.
Available this November at Comic Arts Brooklyn!

I go jogging and obsess over other peoples houses, they leave their front doors open to their Queenslanders and when I see the polished hardwood floors I hold my hands to my chest and say something like ‘my lord look at those fucking polished hardwood floors’
“Landed”Installation by artistIan Strange
As a part of the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Aussie artist Ian Strange has opened his latest installation outside the Art Gallery of South Australia. Dubbed “Landed,” the architectural installation features a matte black structural recreation of the Strange’s own 1920s suburban-style home – positioned in the gallery’s forecourt as if it dropped right out of the sky. Seemingly sinking into the ground beneath it, the isolated “Landed” juxtaposes the neo-classical composition of the museum itself – as well as its urban surroundings – and playfully evokes The Wizard of Oz and an interruption of Western cultural motifs. Ian Strange’s “Landed” is on display through May 11 along with the entirety of the museum’s celebratory biennial exhibition.
