As a teenager I was nurtured on a steady diet of horror films, Surrealist art, heavy metal music, fantasy literature, and the works of Bill Sienkiewicz, Ernst Fuchs, Mobeius and Bernie Wrightson. I am now interested in how the often-maligned genres of comix and cartoon art – with its long tradition of subversive humour and absurdism – might provide new opportunities for social criticism and understanding.
Here’s a comic I made for Liminal Magazine on the theme of taste.
Drawing Dad – A comic that reflects on my dad’s recent experiences of vascular dementia.
The Case of the Animals Versus Humans Before the King of the Jinn – A short comic I made for Cordite Poetry Review in the wake of climate-change induced bushfires that ripped through NSW in the summer of 2019-2020.
Alone Together – A web comic made in collaboration with Melbourne based researchers about how older people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds coped during the Covid-19 lockdowns.
Healing Alone – A graphic medicine web-comic made in collaboration with Dr Isabel Hanson.
