Appearing at MoCCaFest 2019 this weekend!

I'll be appearing at MoCCA Arts Festival in New York this weekend. It's not some kind of chocolate coffee festival (although, I'd probably get a table at that, too) it's the Society Of Illustrators' "Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art" Festival. 

I'll be at the NCS table and doing a Wacom Demo on Saturday. Come by and say hi! Buy a New Yorker cartoon or have something else drawn. If you say you heard about it here I'll knock off 20%.

The MoCCA Arts Festival is a 2-day multimedia event, Manhattan's largest independent comics, cartoon and animation festival, drawing over 7,000 attendees each year. With 400 exhibiting artists displaying their work, award-winning honorees speaking about their careers and artistic processes and other featured artists conducting workshops, lectures and film screenings, our Festival mission accelerates the advancement of the Society's broader mission to serve as Manhattan's singular cultural institution promoting all genres of illustration through exhibitions, programs and art education.

The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer

IMG_5758.JPG



Back in 2010, Sophie and I sat in a dark, tiny little theatre in precisely middle-of-nowhere, Adelaide and watched one of the best shows we've ever seen.


Soph had already seen it a bunch of times, having been performing at the Fringe Festival for a week already by the time I'd got there. She didn't tell me anything about the show but insisted I watch it as soon as I land in Adelaide.

I went to the theatre straight from the airport. My friends from Perth, Tim and Arielle had just put it together in 2009 and within a year had taken it from the Blue Room in Perth to New York Int'l Fringe after an idea from a workshop at Spare Parts in Freo.

The show was masterful, ingenious, brilliant and the story has stayed with me all these years.


Fast forward nearly 10 years: I'm now watching the show at Lincoln Centre in New York, performed by the very talented St John Cowcher and Sam Longley. The show is a masterpiece and is just as effective all these years later.

I hope it runs for 100 years. Congratulations to the whole talented gang at The Last Great Hunt and if you see the show pop up in any programming near you, make a point to go and see it.
