WOAH it’s been a HUGE month!
I spent most of March to early April in Japan – sightseeing, stocking up on huge amounts of art supplies (the Maruman Zuan sketchbooks remain my favourite for copics!) and enjoying the cherry blossoms! It was my first time in Japan while they’re in bloom and it was beautiful!
Upon returning home I went to the Ledgers – our local comics awards. And lucky I could get to it because I won a Platinum Ledger for my work on Minicomicon, the Women in Comics list and comics in general! I’m so humbled to be recognised, I love everything the Ledgers are aiming for so it was really special to receive one! There are so many people I could thank, but most importantly (besides, you know, the people who decided) I have to thank the women in Australian comics – you are a constant inspiration and brilliantly talented. You’re what’s important <3
That weekend was also Supanova Melbourne, which I was lucky enough to be able to attend with Eri and Vikki of Fly the Colour Fantastica! The anthology is BEAUTIFUL and I’m so proud to have been a part of it with so many other fantastic creators – it’s really a unique anthology! It went really really well and Seven also sold quite a few sets! Welcome new readers!
AND if that wasn’t enough for my poor tired self Gold Coast Supanova is THIS weekend! I’ll be tabling beside the awesome Mamath and will have Fly the Colour Fantastica along with all my comics, including a new reprint of Snare and Jellyfish!
Phew, hope to see you there!
