FCBD Sketching “Little Boy with Headphones” Time Lapse Video

As part of Free Comic Book Day, All Star Comics Melbourne has an Artist Alley where local artist do free sketches to raise money for the charity, Beyond Blue.

This was my second year participating and this year we set up the camera to record the afternoons sketching.

“Little Boy with Headphones” is probably my favourite drawing of the day. You can see through out the video the boy’s hand pointing at the photo of himself on the phone.

Thank you to everyone that came by to watch, support the cause and request a sketch!


Supanova Convention Buddies

Having just heard that I have table at OZ Comic Con in July I thought I would share this photo from 2 weeks ago at Supanova Melbourne.

James and I had just arrived home after going to Spectrum Fantastic Art Live in Kansas City, MO. We were both exhausted, I was very sick from travelling.

We couldn’t have made it through the weekend without the support of our convention family <3 David Dunstan, El Naismith, Brooke Naismith and Bryce Campbell

Thank you very much to our friends Nicole for Saturday and Ben for Sunday for stepping in to look after us. We greatly appreciated your help!

Thank you to everyone that stopped by and said hello and to everyone that bought something. You all made it all worth it!

If I had to pick a favourite sketch from this year I would have to pick the little boy in the headphones.

Kiki’s Delivery Service Prints

Kiki’s Delivery Service is one of my favourite movies. She is so hopeful and brave, dreaming and finding her way.  The conversation between her and her friend about magic and art needing inspiration struck a cord.

“Stop trying. Take long walks. Look at scenery. Doze off at noon. Don’t even think about flying. And then, pretty soon, you’ll be flying again.” – Ursula

I will be selling prints of this painting at Supanova to go with my Princess Mononoke tribute painting I did last year.

Find me and both prints at Table 74 in the Grand Pavilion!

Psylocke Art Nouveau Prints

When I was a kid I thought Psylocke was cool. Rogue was my favourite but Psylocke was a close second.

Despite her ridiculous costume (everyone looked pretty outrageous in comics at that time) she had dark hair and a sword and wasn’t a villain (or at least only briefly). What little girl didn’t want to grow up to have long purple hair and be a ninja?

Here is my tribute to her as a poster I would have loved to have as a kid.

I will be selling this as prints at Supanova Melbourne 2017 and my other up coming conventions.
