Dark Scrybe .. Dark Artisan?

So I’m a writer, but one of the other skills I have is as an artist.

When I left school I had good grades in English and Art; I had two choices: Journalism or Graphic Design. I chose Graphic Design and finished a Diploma. On the side though I was heavily into comic books and even drew a few of my own.

Things happened though. I got married and decided to follow the journalism path. Now many years later, after a career as a newspaper journalist, my desires to be a writer and an illustrator of note are merging…

After joining the Australian Horror Writers Association I submitted an eight page comic story for Midnight Echo #3 edited by Dave Schembri. He liked my drawing style, but the story was a bit lax (admittedly he was right!), but obviously my attempt rubbed off on him.

A few months ago another AHWA member and prolific writer and editor Mark Farrugia, had a story that he thought suited a comic. He met Dave and he – to his credit – suggested me.

Now that comic Allure of the Ancients will be published in Midnight Echo #5! Funny how things can turn full circle.

The best part is that Allure is generating me more work … which I hope to reveal more about very soon.
