Have you noticed something different? Much as I love this site – it has served me well for over five years! – I am movin’-on-up to fancier and schmancier pastures! Please come visit me at my NEW site at my OLD address, if that makes sense: robintatlowlord.com is still my home, but it’s different now! This will still be my blog / news page for a while, though – and I apologize for any confusion caused in the changeover (I think all the URLs will have changed back to wordpress.com when I swapped the domain mapping, blah blah blah, yes it’s all very technical and high-falutin’, thank you)

If you’re still confused here is a handy diagram.
If you’re here, and want to go to the new site / fancy portfolio:

If you’re there in Fancyland but want to come back and read my blog / find old posts:

Thank you for looking at my pictures and reading my words here – I appreciate it! I hope you like the new site, too!

New webcomic: Pettyfolly!

My whimsical little comics-short-story project, Pettyfolly, is now online as a webcomic! The first story, Lullaby, about a cranky giant and an opportunistic forest imp, is a few pages in already – and the comic will update with a new page every Monday and Wednesday. I hope you enjoy it!

Superhero style!

hero bobby_smlYep – I’m a superhero now! Well, Bobby Dazzler is my roller derby name, which is kind of like a superhero alias already. And my sidekick Diggle is equally fierce. The neon is important. Very important. You might say it’s the source of my powers! This is a brush pen drawing, colored in Photoshop.

Happy 2015!

I’m back in the studio and finally giving this site some love – I’m excited to share what I’ve been up to over the last few months! Me and my scanner have been busy – expect plenty of posts in the coming weeks.

Problems with a Girl and a Unicorn

This story is not for kids… but if you’re not a kid, you can read it here

Earlier this year I had the chance to adapt a short story by one of my favourite Australian authors, Nick Earls, into a comic format.

It was a lot of hard work, but very rewarding, and the graphic story was published in Griffith Review 32

(print editions only! Don’t buy the digital edition if you’re looking for my comic!)

Format Comics

The gang over at Format are a good bunch. They run a Zine store / art space / live music venue here in Adelaide, throw some excellent parties and, every year, put on an amazing two-week DIY Arts festival or two. Last year they made a sort of yearbook as well, so I put these comics together. Words by Format Collective.
