Taking a break

June 30, 2008

Thank you to all the participants of Round Seven and props to Nicola for finishing without a single blemish on her record.

[Round of applause]

Well done also to Kirrily who has completed her seven comics, if a little late.


Rehab is taking a break in July to reflect on the high attrition rate of late and will be back in August with some great new artists and strategies for overcoming collective creative lethargy… perhaps even a cure for mysterious debilitating illness! Who knows!

Till then I shall leave you with Tim Danko’s fantastic shoes that were created from his rehab comics.

More inspiring Danko here.

Round Seven: Day 28

June 29, 2008

Hmmm, it got a bit long. Indeed it needs a final instalment. I’ll pop the final on my blog and link from here when it is up – in 4 days.

Round 7: Day 25

June 25, 2008

The old ‘it was all just a dream’ ending is corny I know, but it’s a timeless classic. . . x

Round Seven: Day 21

June 22, 2008

Well. The girls are now fighting for Mikey’s affections in a battle to see who can give him the best birthday wishes… Crikey! Now there’s a bit of name-calling and hair pulling. (Kaas hoofd means cheese head and that’s what the Belgians call the Nederlanders. In return they call Belgians ‘thick neck’). Yep. It’s sort of like the Aust/NZ rivalry where we call them… well you know… hehe

Round Seven: Day 19

June 21, 2008

It …… I’m too tired to write. 😦

Round Seven: Day Fourteen

June 17, 2008

Sorry, sorry, sorry!

I’ve been immobile and the internet cafe wouldn’t recognise my USB drive. Also, I have two days in which to paint a life-sized statue of Jesus for World Youth Day (true!)

Week Seven: Day 17

June 17, 2008

I think there’s gonna be a fight in the next installment as the Dutch milkmaids go toe to toe with the Belgian imposter… 

Round Seven: Day 15

June 15, 2008


It is late I apologise. Rehab is tough, and I was away with no scanner – comic drawn, and I tried the photo technique, but the comic was illegible.


June 14, 2008

Excuse me for stepping in. Leigh has contacted me to say that he is having technical problems that have prevented him from posting today. Please come back to rehab Leigh… I sort of believe you. Post a comic tomorrow and all will be forgiven. Same goes for Darren who I fear may have jumped the boundary fence. If anyone sees him please direct him back to rehab!

And now to some project news. I’m very excited to announce that Comic Artist Rehab has been invited to be part of the National Young Writer’s Festival (part of TINA) in Newcastle. The festival is on from 2-6 October.

As part of our presence we are planning to have a roaming rehabilitation facility, comic reading/swap space and a comic confessional! How cool will that be?

Who’s keen to come and be a part of the fun? I have to get back to the festival organisers with a rough quote  of how many rehabbers will be in attendance…. please email me or leave a comment if you’re keen! There may be some support available to pay for accommodation.

So excited!
