Both Bret Braddock books are now available online from my good self. Thankee!
Seeking a valid quantifier by which to judge your personal and artistic progress and likelihood of finding a method by which to support yourself in the arts? Stupid internet contests may not be it! I’m conditioned for minimisation and self-deprecation. I don’t like talking big about my work. I’m very uncomfortable with the idea of [...]
I like drawing on beer mats, a.k.a. those disposable cardboard coasters you get in pubs. Always a bonus when you go to a pub and they have some beer mats there with BLANK BACKS! Some beer manufacturers get coasters made with their bullshit advertising on both sides. They are jerks (hello, jerks). They don’t understand [...]
Want a printed edition of the Bret Braddock Adventures, Vol. 1? Want it as an eBook for your iPad, etc? Either way, you can be helped! Just go to Docklands Entertainment to purchase. By doing so, you are supporting the artistic endeavour of somebody who’d be making this strip anyway, even though each one takes [...]
I got a nice little plug in The Age‘s youth liftout yesterday, along with a bunch of proper book illustrators (I have illustrated a few books, but I haven’t got as much of that kind of work as I’d like). Thanks, The Age!
It’s the end of the year, which can be a slow period for freelance animators like me. So I thought I’d offer to make your company’s animated Christmas card for only $500. I like making funny cartoons cheaply. Would you like one, made just for you, to send to customers/clients, wishing them a happy holiday [...]
I forgot to mention at a useful or appropriate time that I’ve got a comic in the recently released issue (#30) of the venerable Aussie literary journal Going Down Swinging! It’s called Sciensatics, and it’s a somewhat freeform gag on various interesting cult-type “religions”. I’m only posting about it now because the mag got reviewed [...]
This is reposted from the John Howard’s Knees Fundbreak page… Big thanks to those who’ve chucked in for “John Howard’s Knees”, and just as much thanks go to those who’ve re-tweeted, reposted and just generally whored this page around! Personally, I reckon spreading the word is at least as helpful to the film as putting [...]
So I hooked up with the folks at Fundbreak to set up a bit of a crowdfunding experiment. John Howard’s Knees – the case for. from David Blumenstein on Vimeo. I thought it might be interesting to see if we can raise a bit of money for the production of the film by doing what’s [...]
Sharp-eyed readers will have noticed that my blog now auto-posts my Tweets. I have no idea if this is annoying or useful, but since it keeps the blog current, I’m in favour of it. I minimise the number of tweets, keep them reasonably on-topic (cop movies, Farnsy, etc) and don’t reply to others much, so [...]
