Nawlz was recently featured in Melbourne-based Wooden Toy magazine. Creator of the mag, Timba Smits, liked the idea of Nawlz being first concceived on brown paper. He rendered the interview in the brown paper colour and texture. Nice one Timba, I like it!

TED posted this talk by Scott McCloud early January. For those of you who don’t know Scott McColud is possibly the biggest nerd on the planet when it comes to comics. The talk follows on from his book ‘Understanding Comics’ where he explains the magic of comics and how they are evolving. Recently Nawlz was referenced on Scott’s website here within the section entitle “The Infinite Canvas”.
“The “infinite canvas” is a challenge to think big; a series of design strategies based on treating the screen as a window rather than a page. The basic premise is that there’s no reason that long-form comics have to be split into pages when moving online. Pages are an option—and they can work well when screen shapes are taken into account—but the advantages of putting all panels together on a single “canvas” are significant and worth exploiting.”

There’s a detailed review and synopsis of Nawlz at the Webcomic Overlook
It also covers a bit of the technical side of things and talks about where Nawlz might fit within the scheme of post-print and future comics.
Nawlz recieved a 4 page spread in Mexico’s Picnic-mag last month. The theme for the magazine was ‘Process’ . The interviewer asked ‘what is my process?”. My response was ‘To dream up the imposiible…’ this was accompanied with an illustration stating “Wouldn’t THAT be just MAGICAL if you came home and the drawings had done themselves!!!!”
Back in November 2008, Nawlz recieved Runners Up for Best Digital Media at the Australian Desktop Create Awards. To follow-up the award, Sutu was interviewed in the January 2009 edition of Desktop magazine. To read the online interview go here:
