What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2014?
Having my first full-coloured comic Thrust Justice published by Pikitia Press.
Wellington Zinefest was extra good this year.
Got another issue of the Bristle Annual out.
Did some more Wharks too.
What are some of the comics you've enjoyed in 2014?
I got some good Thai comics recently, I can’t understand them because I can’t read Thai, but they look good.
Vincent Konrad’s No Soap Radio, Michael Sanders’ Epic Journey parts 1 & 2 (looking forward to the rest of the parts) The latest Dailies, the Moonbeard collection, and anything by Ben Hutchings is awesome.
What is something non-comics that you have enjoyed in 2014?
I enjoyed paying off my mortgage and then going on holiday in South East Asia (twice). I enjoy Wellington having an underground music venue again (the Pyramid Club) and there’s also a music venue within walking distance from my home (Moon). Haven’t been watching TV this year so I can’t say I’ve enjoyed anything on TV.
What are you looking forward to in 2015?
Looking forward to seeing the Three Words NZ Womens comics anthology. Also planning on doing another Thrust Justice and a Fungus Boy reprint. I might move house.
