Whale Windows

I have started a separate blog for my current project with Guildhouse and the SA Museum: Whale Windows

It’s a cross-platform, interactive project exploring the narrative potential of flawed human attempts to understand, and relate to, mammals as massive and seemingly ‘alien’ as whales.

I’ll be exploring the Museum’s world-class Marine Mammal collection; collaboratively generating fanciful, empathetic stories about humans and whales through workshops with kids, and then creating a  interactive display of comics, artwork and animation that playfully weaves together fact and fancy, and speculates on emotional connections between our very different species.

I’ve just had my first day exploring the amazing collection, the kids’ workshops are next week and the exhibition will be up at the Museum around July or August.

Check it out!

This project was a picture book commission from Family By Family

I devised, wrote and illustrated the rhyming story, following their brief of introducing the concept of family matchups to small children whose parents are interested in sharing ideas and support with a nearby family in need.

This book was heaps of fun and I enjoyed the writing time (almost) as much as the illustrating!

Pedal parade

I never really need an excuse to draw bikes and their riders… but the recent Tour Down Under here in Adelaide provided one anyway! In this peloton are a jumble of assorted loose & jolly cyclist scribbles from around Tour time and a couple from my Spring Ride brainstorming too. Hop on your own trusty treadly today!
