Cartooning Workshops Around Town

A quick blog to share that I’ve recently been involved in facilitating some workshops and art exhibitions around Canberra the past couple of weeks.  I’ve been fortunate enough to provide programs with the Canberra Hospital Mental Health Unit (AMHU) for some time now, and I’ve been involved in their art exhibition as part of mental health week, which was a lot of fun.  Also as part of mental health week I’ve facilitated a workshop for Connections community support service with a “Strengths to Goals” theme involving quick drawing and this was also great fun for a couple of hours.  An “Environmental Superhero” cartoon workshop for kids at National Botanic Gardens competed a great week!  I’ll become more frequent in sharing upcoming workshop info, now that I’m getting more programs up and running.

Also, keep an eye out for my Victor the Viking cartoon in the next few weeks!

Raiders Riding Green Wave Of Momentum

Victor’s the happiest he’s been in years as the Mighty Raiders head into the second week of the semis after slicing through the sharks.  Now they face those Wabbits in Sydney…………….have a look at this week’s cartoon by clicking on the Raiders link below!

National Botanic Gardens Cartooning Workshops

I’ll be facilitating some fun cartoon workshops in the October school holidays for the National Botanic Gardens over the two week period.  The first session on Thursday 4th involves animating some plants in the Canberra region and also including the animals that rely upon them as a food source.  Plants will actually come to life through cartooning!   The second week’s session on Thursday 11th is an exciting and imaginative theme involving creating your own environmental super hero!  Come along to both sessions and be entertained as well as educated in fun and interactive cartooning workshops!

Canberra Raiders On Cusp Of A Finals Berth

Victor’s crowing this week as the Raiders have pulled off a minor miracle by placing themselves well into the finals race after a great win in the cold against the Doggies!  If they win the final round then they could be hosting a home semi final……….who would’ve thought that a few weeks ago!   To view this week’s Victor the Viking cartoon, just click on the link below
