All Saints' Literature Festival
I was invited to present some workshops on cartooning at a recent Literature Festival in Perth. It was my such festival of words and they treat you like royalty at these things (I'm assuming they had a certain level of support for their other guests, like Mem fox of Possum Magic fame, and I just got to come along for the ride).
I presented three 2 hour sessions and to a range ages and was even on a panel talking with students about creative careers after school. It was great to be around people who have had success in their respective creative fields (Jamie Edis, www.ezone.com, Jan Latta, Travis Tischler, and Sophia Zielinski who made a 5m high, found object, geodesic dome in her back yard!)
