Happy holidays!

CornucopiaAs you may have noticed, things have been quiet here, as I was working awfully hard getting the new edition of Hicksville ready, plus drawing a couple of new stories (one for the mindblowing Australian magazine/journal/book/event The Lifted Brow [illustrated above], and another for the British activist charity book Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption) – both of which I’ll post on properly soon.

I also wrote (and illustrated) the foreword for the Tango collection (romance comics by more than 50 Australian and New Zealand cartoonists), visited Wanganui for their marvellous literary festival, did a tour of schools in Northland for the Storylines Festival, and – well, a bunch of other stuff too! Phew!

As a result, however, I’ve fallen behind on The American Dream and the rest of the site – something I intend to rectify in the New Year with a flurry of online activity.

But for the next three weeks, my family and I will be driving around the South Island of New Zealand, gazing in awe at glaciers and mountains, lakes and forests – a much-need break after this year’s frenzy of work. I don’t expect to have internet access at all during that time, but when I’m back I promise I’ll post some new comics (there are several!), and resume both The American Dream and The Magic Pen with a vengeance!

So in the meantime, have a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all peace and love and happy reading…

  1. Congratulations on the new edition. I’m looking forward to not having to pass my own much-battered copy around anymore.

    Do drop by if you’re in Christchurch and you’re doing by-dropping on your journey.
