Minicomic of the Month Club 2015

Andrew is a cartoonist in Melbourne. He posts comics online at mumblier.com, though embarrassingly not for a while. He wrangles the Minicomic of the Month Club each year, and the Caravan of Comics ebook project.

I try to keep a sketchbook, it kind of feels like my main Publishing Output at the moment — sad as it is — is posting sketchbook drawings to instagram. My sketchbooks tend to fill up with fleshy folds and distressed muscles, but I’ve also been super into drawing chickens recently. We’ve had a few in the yard for a while, they are pretty silly and fun to draw.

An Entity Observes All Things by Box Brown from Retrofit

I liked Box Brown’s An Entity Observes All Things, a collection of short sci-fi stories. I liked each of the little worlds Box made for each story, and visually there were some great robots and monsters and spaceships. Nice use of colour too — just one or two different colours for each story.

I think my favourite was the one where the lady moves forward and reaches some kind of Universal Enlightenment after being captured by a space lizard.

There’s some part of me that enjoys the busywork of stapling and folding, but only for so long. I really like the few moments where I find the right point to balance on, watching a drawing, a page come to life — for those few happy minutes before I get super impatient with inking and ruin it by rushing.

You can get away with more if you’re dead.

I got a Youth in Decline pin from Big Bud Press. Enamel pins seem to be a thing again, and I like it.
