Australia. A love letter to a country I don't understand.
I'm Australian born and bred. Growing up under the stars of the Murray river, I've got a deep affinity for our bush. Nothing makes me feel more at ease than rolling out the swag and going for a bushwalk. Making a cuppa and watching the magpies endlessly swoop back and
F*$% Environmental Vandals, make comics.

Starting at the bottom. Climbing the passion mountain.
Deciding to make something when you have none of the skills to accomplish the task at hand is daunting. Building a house, creating an apple pie from scratch or in my case making a graphic novel is a scary prospect. But I think this is one situation where ignorance is
Twenty Four Hour Comic Day. What to bring.
24 hours to complete a 24 page comic. Scott Mccloud [http://scottmccloud.com/] who invented the idea must have been smoking the good stuff. I'm taking part in my first this weekend. Anyway it doesn't sound that hard. An hour a page, pfft no worries. As the guys over at
Half finished posts. The desire to get it bloody done.
I have a problem. Well i have alot of problems some bigger than others. I struggle to finish stuff. I have a brilliant idea and I start doing it, it bubbling away in my head. I'm the kid that forgets to eat his icecream after wanting one all day because
Why god invented erasers and why you should kick that rubber to the curb.
He made them to make us unhappy. Imagine for a second they didn't exist. You created art on a piece of paper using your favourite pen and that was it. It was solid, complete and unchangeable. Like carving into stone. One would have to except what is placed in front

Rotten Circle of life (poetry)
I rot. Blue screens and blue boxes with white tables separated by blue sky. White and blue. Pure and free. But like the old sign on the freeway, all cracked and faded, promising a world of hearts desire. It's false. Security. Dependancy. "Steady job". "We all have to work". Work?
