I had the pleasure to do a bunch of school talks at the Sutherland Shire Writers Unleashed festival. A big thanks to the organisers for inviting me and to all the kids for being a rad audience.
In the character creating part of my first talk the kids came up with Boo the crocodile with melting chocolate arms, hot doglegs, a skeleton body and a dragons tail. Boo lives in a giant stack of pancakes in the world of chips n’ gravy.
Second was Bob the hippopotamus. He has tentacle arms, carrot legs and a sugar cube body.
Next they came up with Mog the unicorn. Mog has T-rex arms, one mermaid tail for a leg and a chick leg for the other. All topped off with a turtles body. Mog lives in a giant marshmallow in the land of cheese.
Here we have Krob the rabbit. Krob has banana arms, snow ball hands, octopus legs and an upside down roast chicken body. I apologise for the blurry photo.
All up I had a great two days in Sydney. Thanks again to everyone that made it all happen.
Today I went to King’s Baptist Grammar to do some talks on graphic novels and Pilot and Huxley.
Here are the drawings that me and the kids came up with.
Here we have Fred 2000. He is a Chicken that has a snakes body and a scorpions tail. His eyes have x-ray vision. He lives in a giant bowl of feathers on the moon.
Next we have Jack the alligator. He has monkey legs and dragon wings. He lives in a beehive at the bottom of the ocean.
Last we have John the T-rex who has a frogs body. Fred is being ridden by Fred the rabbit. Both of them are going out to posh dinner. They both live in a giant bath plug in lolly land.
Thanks to all the kids at King’s Baptist Grammar for making my day so fun!!!
Today I went to Woodville Primary to do some talks. Each class had made me all sorts of awesome things!
Here we have some graphic novels
Here we have some figures from Pilot and Huxley.
Another class made portals to other worlds.
Then we all got together and created some characters.
Here we have Snake the unicorn fish that wears a jetpack. He lives in an igloo made of cheese in an old ladies suitcase.
Next we have Shaky the rabbit that loves milkshakes. He lives in a milkshake marshmallow mason hotel that resides in the world of Boom.
Next we have Mike the Pigbot. He lives in a BBQ in the world of cyberspace / computers.
And last we have Tom the pirate dragon that has octopus legs and robot arms. He lives in an old hermit crab shell in the land of cookies.
There was also another class that made some amazing circle comics but they left before I got to take pictures of them.
I would like to thank all the kids and teachers for such a rad day.
