Based on an earlier design I quickly (in 20mins) whipped up sometime ago as a comment on the minimalist film poster trend. 

Thought the design was pretty fun, but could’ve been improved by a better illustration.

One of my favorite films.


Here are some selected panels from a recently finished job for Cengage Publishing. A little comic story about a young girl and her family’s journey from the war-torn Congo, through refugee camps of Rwanda, and finally to the USA.

The next part in my Shadow Rumble story is getting published in Book 2 of the epic Home Brew Vampire Bullets (available in digital ad print-on-demand).

I was pretty quiet with the lead up for the first part. I remember my younger brother went to see From Dusk Till Dawn at the cinema not having a clue what it was about. (I’ve no idea how this happened). He thought it was just a Tarantino crime-story so when the vampires appeared he lost his shit.

I thought it would be pretty cool to attempt this surprise reveal. I’ve no idea if it worked on anyone and I might’ve lost some marketing appeal with all those vampire and werewolf fans out there by selling the story as Bloody history. Big business. Class warfare. Power, community, monsters. Melbourne.” That’s the definite themes of the story I want to tell but I wonder what would’ve happen if my tag was just “Werewolves Vs Vampires in Melbourne”.

So with Part 2 It’s pretty much balls-to-the-wall werewolf/vampire action.

Without giving away spoilers (by now you should either know or don’t care that there are socialist werewolves & conservative libertarian vampires running around in Melbourne), here are some SALES POINTS about part 2:

  • I’ve got a product placement! That T-shirt is one of my favourite T-shirts created by Doug Holgate. There’s a great back story to why Doug created the shirt and why he gave it to me (but I won’t bore you here).
    You can buy your own here.

  • Hipster shaming!

  • Loads of werewolves fighting vampires & cool sound effects!

  • I pretty much love my last page!

Here are some new players:

More to come!


Earlier today I handed in the first part of an ongoing epic comic story called Shadow Rumble. I plan to write more about it later, but these are 4 things that inspired me and got me through the process.
