I figured I should introduce myself here, seeing as I recently registered and have already made a few posts.
After years of meaning to do a webcomic, I finally started a semi-autobiographical weekly strip called 5031 in 2004. It ran for 18 months, but I felt restricted by the limitations of the format and the premise, so I canned it and started a new comic in April of this year. The new comic is called Basic Wage Kids and is about the members of an unsigned three-piece rock band of the same name. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a family friendly, newspaper format comic that runs Monday to Friday.
Apart from my webcomics, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had my comics and single-panel cartoons published in various Australian newspapers, street press and comic books.
I have a voracious appetite for comics of most kinds (excluding most superheroes) and have absorbed everything from Floyd GottfredsonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 1930Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s Mickey Mouse comics to Frank MillerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Sin City.
I quit my job to draw comics. Basic Wage Kids is the result: www.24hourcynic.com
