Artist Introduction: Cassandra Tytler



To my shame, I’ve been very distracted from making and reading comics for the last few years. I have a fanzine worth of material but haven’t got round to getting to the photocopiers. (Do people still even photocopy their comics?) It all seems hard, and I admit that I need a kick up the arse – thank-you Amber for doing just this.

On the up side I have other creative endeavours that I have been obsessing over. It’s not as if I’ve become an (insert your idea of most boring job here). I’ve been in France for the last year doing two art residencies, and have been continuing to make videos and extra bits and pieces. Am inspired and busy and enthusiastic … but something is missing … The pain in my hand as I carefully trace over my pencilled drawing, the dirty erasure debris collected on my desk, the yellow spots in my vision after being at the photocopiers. I want back in!

    Hi Cassandra,

    I have a copy of Relax Baby #3, if i remember correctly, tucked away for posterity. It holds an important place in my heart as it was one of the first things i bought when discovering zines and Australian handmade comics. Not sure if you remember but i interviewed you for Swinburne Student Radio back in the day – you were my first comic related interview and now i’m doing it regularly.

    Looking forward to seeing what you are working on now.

    That’s hilarious! Yes I do remember you. You were the first person who I was interviewed by. What a nice small world it is.

    hey Cassandra,

    wow! I got all excited when I saw you here. I loved Relax Baby (I think I made you send me lots of back issues a few years ago…) I can’t wait to read your stuff here.
