Read #takedown online

For Free Comic Book Day this year, I thought I’d put my 2015 book #takedown up to read for free on


I went along to see a “professional pickup artist”, Julien Blanc, speak. While we waited, I talked to the men wanting to see him and the protesters who wanted him shut down. He eventually fled the country.

You can go read #takedown here. You can also check out reviews at The Saturday Paper and Aus Comics Journal, and a prelude to the book I did for Junkee.

Draw The Line

I contributed a couple pages to the new international anthology called Draw The Line. I thought it was a good idea — a large group suggests loads of political actions one can take if they’re frightened for the world as it is post-Trumkfpth, and illustrators pick which actions they’d like to illustrate.

I chose “Look for the Reason”, and “Check Facts”. Get onto the site if you want to read the actions associated, and to check out more than a hundred excellent suggestions-plus-art. Sounds like there might be a print book later this year?

Look for the Reason

Check Facts

Ben Garrison in French

What the heck?

I did a long comic for The Nib (an excellent resource for current graphic journalism and Trump jokes) last year about Ben Garrison, a libertarian cartoonist victimised by trolls for many years. Frédéric Pierron offered to translate it into French as he thought French readers might find it interesting too. Now it’s done (though I can see a few places where I forgot to replace the English “quote marks” with French << quote brackets >>)!

Ca alors!

If you speak French, or know someone who does, pass it on!

Sydney launch of #takedown

I’m launching my book #takedown at Books Kinokuniya in Sydney! Come along if you can!

Kino’s FB event page for it. More importantly, Kino would really love you to RSVP if you’re coming by either phone: 02 9262 7996, email:, or via Eventbrite here.

Not only are we launching at my favourite bookshop in Sydney, but I’ll have a chat with one of the best cartoonists in Australia (and one of my favourite guys on Earth), PAT GRANT. We’ll put some kind of audiovisual schnazz on a screen. Who knows what else. We’ll go get beers after.

I am also pleased to announce that SENATOR THE HON. GEORGE BRANDIS, QC will be launching the book! Well, I’ve sent him one and invited him to. I hope all you artists out there have been doing the same!
