ABOUT ME

2014 July 20

I live in the gold rush town of Castlemaine, Australia, with my partner Cathy Parry (of Industrial Sewing Workshop) and our two young sons. I’ve been an architect since I was 12.

HOW TO PUBLISH A GRAPHIC NOVEL

2014 March 1

EMPTY your mind. In my case by quitting my full time job due to frustration, with no idea whatsoever of an alternative. NURTURE a good idea. I felt I’d failed in my final year of studying Architecture to fully express my thoughts of what was wrong with our cities. These issues came flooding out once […]

FLOATING HORIZON – LAUNCH

2014 February 2

The launch went well. I was madly signing and chatting for a good 3 hours. It was held at Lot19, an art space here in Castlemaine. I chose this over a bookstore as I wanted to see my large print hung in an unbroken run. Don’t despair if you missed it, I’ve got an inkling […]

CROWD FUNDING WORKS

2014 January 1

I raised all of the money to print my first book at Australian based crowd funding platform Pozible. I was able to then add a bit more cash to make the print run larger and significantly lower the unit cost of the book. The original campaign can be found here.

ON DRAWING

2013 April 3

Drawing is brain exercise. As I fill up my brain with lots of stuff, it expands a little bit. I then let thousands and thousands of words worth of numbers, colours, forms, and actions, out onto the page. They can there be absorbed by somebody else’s brain, in a clearer, developed, more amenable form. My […]
