My work is scattered all over the web and hiding out in weird, unfindable anthologies, zines and self-published books.
Other comics are out of print, but you can read, download and torrent them at zco.mx!
Why Los Angeles is Scientology’s perfect city – an illustrated guide (2020)
For The Guardian’s Cities section, an exploration of the Church of Scientology’s Ideal Org program (fundraising to renovate all their existing buildings into fancier, more “ideal” facilities.
“Ideal Orgs” as a concept was mutated from an old policy document by L. Ron Hubbard, but their style is dictated by “interior decorator-in-chief” David Miscavige. In this piece I consider them in relation to Scientology’s obsession with celebrity and the city of Los Angeles.
Read it at The Guardian.
Free Money, Please (2019)
This is a comic about bitcoin, wealth, passive income and an artist’s relationship with money (“it’s complicated”).
What We Tell Them: A Storybook by Mr. Tony Abbott (2019)
What We Tell Them is the lovely children’s book Tony Abbott would write. A limited print version of this book was released and raised $2000 for The Life You Can Save.
You can read it over at zco.mx.
Tristian Oversees (2018)
Tristian Oversees is a book collection of my little brother Tristian’s finest works — a series of “letters from ’round the world” in Jan/Feb 2016. Tristian hit the campaign trail in the USA, witnessing the Nevada caucus and reporting from the Democrat and Republican camps, including a fabulous performance by President-to-be Donald Trubnsmp at a Vegas dressage arena.
“All right, so the drawings aren’t great, the writing adolescent – but the politics are right on.”— Andrew Bolt
#takedown is a comic book about when professional pickup artist Julien Blanc came to Australia (and was booted out real quickly). It was published by Pikitia Press.
The Internet’s Most Trolled Cartoonist (2015)
The unfortunate story of a cartoonist who became part of the awful internet. Now we’re all part of the awful internet, and it’s a part of us. It was a timely piece!
Scare Campaign (2014)
This was a collection of comics about scary, bad people. A lot of them were politicians. It was launched at BrunswickArts’ HalloZeen event, where the author enthralled a darkened roomful of people with a frightening story about a toilet mishap.
Inside Scott Morrison (2014)
A team of planet-loving teens fly down the throat of border czar (and now Prime Minister) Scott Morrison, and attempt to save stateless refugees by appealing to his pink, fat heart.
Australian election 2013: the graphic novel
Some fun for Guardian Australia, written by Paul Owen and chronicling the idiotic backstabbing and chicanery leading up to the 2013 election that gave us “Prime Minister Tony Abbott”. The cascade of PMs hasn’t ended yet.
‘Showman’: The Bret Braddock Adventures (2011, 2012)
Initially an anonymous webcomic, it eventually became the long-running story of Bret Braddock, Sally Quince and the most slapdash, poorly-run kids TV production in Australia.
Nakedfella Comics #1-9 were self-published and came out in the 2000s. You don’t need to go looking for them. I’d recommend staying out of the zine collection of your local state library. Shoo.
