My new comic can be read online now. It’s called Free Money, Please. I spent several months working on it — including a lot of interviews and transcription!
It’s similar style-wise to the story #takedown from a few years ago, in that it’s me meeting and speaking to people about a topic I don’t like much.
That time, I was talking to pickup artists about pickup artistry. This time, I’m talking to a few different people about bitcoin, wealth and passive income — and reflecting on my own relationship with money, which is probably similar to that of a lot of artists (“it’s complicated”).
People who’ve read it have compared the tone to a Louis Theroux doc, which I’m taking as a massive compliment as I’m a fan of his work.
You can read Free Money, Please two ways: at Medium or at zco.mx.
zco.mx is a brilliant platform for reading comics on any device, plus you can download an ebook from there, and even chuck me a couple bucks if you like the story.
Medium is a nice reading experience too, but all you can chuck me are “claps”. Please do that if it suits you.
Thanks to my interviewees for this story — Gregory Mowle, Kylie Hammond, and a few people who will go unnamed…

For Free Comic Book Day this year, I thought I’d put my 2015 book #takedown up to read for free on zco.mx. 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 …
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 …
Tonight my little brother watched the US presidential election results, and then rushed off to his room and applied for an internship with News Corp! He insisted I put his filled out application form up on my blog, even though I told him it might hurt his chances.
There was a debate about the arts on over at the Wheeler Centre featuring arts minister Mitch Fifield, shadow arts minister Mark Dreyfus and Green Adam Bandt. I popped along and scribed it, live (nobody asked me to do this).
