Follow Your Shadow Exhibition

Tasmania has a unique and fabulous group of artists. I recently joined forces with the comics & animation side of the field for a group exhibition curated by Sarah Jane Moore. Follow Your Shadow explores the diverse world of comic art. There were large scale giant pieces, projected works and even little character sculptures that all had a story. The artists involved were Vivien Mason, Sarah Jane Moore, Grace Garton, Paula Hatton, Scott Baxter, Josh Santospirito, Paul Peart-Smith and me. 

 I love what Vivien did in this poster -- the character on the right is actually one of my characters from Lucia the Luchadora in silhouette.

I chose to exhibit some of my comic diaries, which I have been working on and off for many many years. (Manuscript coming soon!) 

My artist statement for the show:

Do you remember how you felt when you first learned the nuances of the world? The shadow of the past lingers in the way that it shapes you. These autobiographical comic montages are a reminiscent exploration of growing up. They are taken directly from my childhood journals.

And lastly, I will share with you my redo of The 14 Steps, my favorite awkward and REAL diary entry.
