Albury writers festival



I travelled to Albury on the weekend with fellow comic artist Mandy Ord. We had been invited to be part of the write around the Murry festival. We did a drop in comic drawing workshop in the library on Saturday and Mandy also performed another comic workshop in the afternoon.

It was strange how similar Albury was to Ballarat, it was almost like a sister city. It felt like Ballarat, looked a bit like Geelong and combined aspect of both rural Victoria and NSW.

The weekend gave me a much needed kick in the bum to get a move on with my next comic. I am so close to getting it printed, all that is left is the front and back cover.

I did some of the edits last night, rewriting some text and redrawing some panels. I ended up having to use a different pen other than my tech pen due to the paper I was using. The surprising thing was that I really liked the results. It may be time to put down the tech pen and start using the new pen (a faber castell pitt pen, small). Either that or find better paper for my temperamental tech pen.
