Who are yours?

I’m terrible at remembering things/people without prompts, but today I only just (duh) made the connection that Lachlan Conn (of silentarmy; of Voiceworks designer fame) is the same Lachlan who operates the brilliant Forepaw space in Northcote (Melbourne). His illustration and comic art is so great; progressive imagery with a 1940s-1960s block colour style.

One of his excellent ideas is Trails, a zine that’s compiled at the end of the drawing night of the same name which is held at Forepaw.

I’m also pretty fond of Dylan Martorell, Cailan Burns, Yandell Walton and others whose names escape me now. I always liked Tai Snaith’s stuff, too.

Share yours?

Err, I should have also said that “local” for me is Melbourne, Australia. I guess there are people everywhere on this site, huh…?

Ghost patrol is my fav.

sorry, all my artist friends he just beat.

Ouliposse said 9 years ago

Ghost Patrol; seconded. Pour money on it nao.

I like to see good use of materials, so I’m all about retreats from the dialogic and well into craft. Anybody with a good use of language (ie, none, or a little) is a friend of mine.
