Hey fellow artists in the digital world, 

This will be the last journal I'll be putting up before I upload the finished pages of Zenyaku chapter 2. At this point in time I've got 7 pages left to pencil and ink, then I'll be scanning it all in my computer and put in all the greys and lettering into it. Doing this Zenyaku has been like a journey. I've been illustrating things I haven't done before, putting more effort than the first part and been going through my 'How To Draw' books and going through reference material more than ever. It does feel like a leap from the first part, but I still have a long way to go before attempting being professional. 

Other little things, you've probably noticed that I've been posting up photo's of little paintings that I've been doing lately. Not long ago I had a place in the Brisbane Alternative Bazaar which was an alternative comic/pop culture expo and I had these 5x5 canvases lying around (Which I've had for years). So I decided to make some paintings to have something else to sell at the event. I did sell the DARIA and the ITTY BITTY BUNNIE, people did take notice. It was a decent small tight packed convention, there will be another one in the end of the year, I might get a place for that, but I'll need someone to go halves with me for that. The price for a spot was $100, the next one it's $250 because it's moving into a bigger place. I can't afford everything on my own. 

The next convention I'll be attending will be up in Mackay which is the Sugar City Con in late August (Link;, which is actually my home town. Then straight after that, it's the Brisbane Zine Fair. I might pull out a new print just for the sake of something new, but that's a maybe. I've been on an artistic drive to get Zen #2 done and dusted, probably rather get it down then do some other stuff for a little while. Do watch this space. 

So yeah, that's all the news from me.  All I do these days is work and make art...  
How have you people been anyway?

Once more your faves smash to the forefront of my mind, crushing all bad dreams and enemies of conscious expansion! You my friend are what the Dugga-maku-ku tribe of Antarctica call "La-shanna Pa-pupanuggy" meaning "He who basks in jelly and is one with the octopuses." An earth-shattering honour it is.

Many, many thank for the creamy dream thou hast bestowed upon me in the form of these bifurcated favourites. They will surely provide me with enough sandwich fillings and fuel to reach new heights of artistic swirliness.
