Another great talk this week with Bernard Caleo, Neale Blanden and Clint Cure. We showed Clint’s award-winning animated short The Lecture, Bernard performed his version of the opening to No Country For Old Men via spoken word and live drawing under a camera, and all three talked about what it is to be plugging away at an artform generally considered (derided!) as a “kiddie pastime” and whether their comics are actually “FUNNY”, “ODD FUNNY” or “NOT FUNNY”. And Neale explained beloved Disney character Goofy’s disturbing early history as a servile Negro.
Bernard says something, with passion. Clint looks on.
Following the session, a quiet chat with the cream of Melbourne’s comics community.
Nicola Hardy, recently returned from debauched art tour of Europe, and Neale.
