Just a very quick update. Exciting news! Monty Wedd's NED KELLY (after a frustrating delay) is now at the printer! (The delay was caused with some last minute cover art adjustments that were required by the printer. The dust jacket has now been finalised, and a reduced copy can be seen below,) The Second Volume of John Dixon's AIR HAWK and the FLYING DOCTOR is also at the printer! ROB FELDMAN's Cartoons, Comics, and Cows in Cars is (almost) ready for the printer!
Rob and I are off to the Australian Cartoonists' Association's annual get-together (this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, in beautiful Coffs Harbour) where we will make some final tweaks to Rob's book. Rob has asked that you look out for his soon-to-be-launched website (see above), where you can take a sneak peek at some of the interior pages to his book!
