Free Money, Please

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!

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 …

Arts Debate

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).
