Hi, I’m Bernie Slater and I haven’t drawn a comic in yeeeeeeeears. I cut my teeth in the world of drawing making zines and self published comics. These days I’m primarily a printmaker, but do a lot of drawing, collage and sometimes digital stuff. I’m keen to get back into some comics – they’re quick, a great opportunity to be cheeky and you can shove them out into the world without having to engage in too much pomp and ceremony.
I teach visual arts at Canberra Institute of Technology, and June rehab conveniently fits in with our hectic assessment period. Fun! Combine that with World Cup Soccer, home renos and a six month old baby and we have a sanity-testing month of sleeplessness! I already feel queasy from the adrenalin.
More vital stats:
Fave comic artists:
- Art Speigelman
- Nate Powell
- Lots of self publishers who put out a single brilliant comic then disappear forever.
Preferred modes of communication:
- Biting political satire that ‘sticks it to the man’
- Poo jokes
So excited to have another jam-packed round about to kick off tomorrow. Four very exciting artists to announce:
- Bernie Slater
- Anthony Woodward
- Maude Farrugia
- Gregory Mackay
Artist intros will be up shortly. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out the Rehab Exit Interviews from last round.
