In my last post I mentioned an upcoming festival in Hobart featuring illustrators, cartoonists, graphic novelists, comic book artists and animators. It's Her Majesty’s Favourite Really Great Graphical Festival and will be happening June 5th - 8th (soon!) with a few pre-festival events including the fabulous Captain Blueberry (aka Rachel Tribout)'s book launch 'The Monsters of Tasmania' on 28th May. There's a great program featuring a zine fair, talks, live drawing performances and book launches. I'll be one of several artists giving a talk at A Thousand Words - Thursday June 5th, 6pm at Constance gallery, 100 Goulburn St (entry by single gold coin donation, bar open, proceeds go to the gallery). Featuring Tony Thorne, Sam Lyne, Gay McKinnon, Christopher Downes, Hiiragi, Rex Smeal, Paul Peart-Smith, Tom O’Hern and Sarah Catherine Firth. Hope to see you there.
