Here are some new cartoons, soon to be published in the Melbourne Observer.Looks like I have a new job next month, doing story board art for the Melbourne Planetarium.I'm not allowed to go into details, but it should be pretty interesting.I've done lots of storyboards over the years with advertising agencies but this should be a bit different as the final product isn't on a screen but on a great big dome.Apparently there are animation festivals around the world for the dome circuit, when ever there is major movement your head spins.Pretty cool.I look foreward to working on something that can make you seasick.

This is my entry in the 'Beasties' themed print swap and exhibition run by Rona Green.The title is"Hey, That Thing Bit Me!"You can Rona's work at www.ronagreen.com, she is an excellant artist.The swap works like this: twenty three artists do twenty three prints and everyone gets a copy.The theme was 'Beasties', and there are some amazing prints in the series from renowned artists from all over Australia.There is going to be an exhibition of the prints at Port Jackson Press, from the the second of september.I will post an invitation once I get one.
My print is a linocut on yellow plastic.My artist statement for the exhibition goes:
"Due to mankind's almost total controll over the natural world, in most places we only have to worry about attacks from small animals. I feel the alarm would be exaggerated if the attack was from something we couldn't identify, compounding the 'get on a chair and squeal' effect. My image is printed in the colours of a warning sign, yellow and black."
It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Here are some slightly earlier cartoons, leave a comment, let me know what you think.There are a couple of cartoons about heaven, but I'm not very religious, it's not a thing I believe in, personally i think if there is an afterlife , it's probably full of cavemen.
