Hey Folks, I just launched a Kickstarter.
A printed comic book paired with an iPad/iPhone app brings to life the story of a paranoid time traveler known as Modern Polaxis.  Please check out the campaign and help to spread the word.

A few pages from a new book I have coming out soon…

Year in review

Posted by: Sutu on December 31. 2013 at 11:14 am

Yes it’s New Year’s eve, the end of 2013.  Is everybody ready? I wish you all well, may the madness bring new and exciting visions!

I know I haven’t been too active on the blog, but never the less it’s been quite a big year with even bigger things happening in the New Year. That and I just feel like thanking everybody. So firstly a BIG THANKS to all you people out there in NAWLZy land.  It’s incredible the opportunities that have arrived just from having the site up. You’re doing a great job sharing the word to the far ends of the globe.  I get emails from every where, places I’ve never heard of, plenty of enthusiastic Uni students have written about Nawlz in their thesis. What a spin out!  I’ve still got the FINAL episode to do. It’s sad to see it be put on the backburner so many times, but I must say it’s nice to be finally getting paid to do the kind of work I wanna do.  So with that in mind…

Big congratulations and THANKYOU to everyone (especially the community of Roebourne) who have been involved with and supported NEOMAD which won an ATOM award (an Australian Media Arts Award).  Also a big congrats goes out to my mate Tyson Mowarin, writer of Ngurrara which won the Jury Selection for the Manga division of the Japanese Media Arts Festival.  I gotta thank my Producer Deb Myers and the company I work with BIGhART for driving the YijalaYala Project. That project has  marked an important part of my life. It has been instrumental in figuring out a way to involve an entire community in the creation of a comic (three interactive comics I should say). The project has set new precedents for how mining corporations could work better with their neighbouring endangered communities.

In other news I’ve just finished illustrating a 70 page Mega City-near-future adventure called The Gatecrashers. It’s written by Zach Mortenson founder of Ghost Robot. It’s about a paramedic/ambulance driver who’s job is to haul bodies from near death to life through the chaotic fabric of a cluster fuck City known as Palomar.  It’s gritty and neon like an ambulance light reflecting in a puddle of mud.   The comic showcased at New York comicon this year and we just recieved this great email this morning:

“Hey, I met you guys in NYC comic con and I can’t to get my hands on this comic. Im already in love with it. You may not remember me but I was the medic who works for FDNY so the idea alone got me hooked. I just want to wish you all the best and a lot of success. Hope this new year starts out with a bang!  Im sitting in my ambulance as I write this, even got my partner into getting a copy.  Have a happy new year, stay safe and enjoy. -Already a huge fan, João Seabra”

I’m sure it will appeal to everyone (not just ambulance drivers) Here’s a  sneak peak of it, without the dialogue.  Zach’s putting that in as we speak (in between sipping Martini’s no doubt):

I’ve also got a few new short stories on the go including the diary of a paranoid time traveller.  This is going to be an AR comic where you need the iPhone App to see the protagonists *hidden* messages and maddening theories about the agents him.

More news: The ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission) will be shooting a short doco on me in January – they’re even coming up to the desert to shoot it.  Very exciting! Also I just got invited to the Fumetto International Comix Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland – very excited about that too, never been to Switzerland and they will be exhibiting a bunch of my work.  I can’t wait to see what they do with it. I might be heading back to Greenland to finish a short story there. That won’t happen til middle of next year, but the wheels on the project are slowly turning, fingers are crossed, I REALLY wanna get back to Greenland!

Ok that’s it for now.  Have a great night tonight and take no inspiration from Jonnie-jon.

I saw a sign today…
