Comic Book Funny Returns!
My betrothed, Mr David Blumenstein, is once again organising Comic Book Funny as part of the free program of Melbourne Comedy Festival events at Trades Hall. I will be contributing artwork to the calendar mentioned below.
Dates and times:
5pm - 6.15pm Every Saturday in April
Week 1: a genteel exhibition launch and informal comics salon, directed by Mme Josephine Waite. All welcome.
We expect also that lady comic artists will be on hand to sketch attractive male comic artists for the upcoming art-calendar, THE SEXY MEN OF AUSTRALIAN COMICS 2009-2010 FINANCIAL YEAR CALENDAR. Twelve steamy months of hot cartoonist man-meat, as depicted by women who share their comics passion.
Watch the ladies draw, or do some drawing yourself.
Week 2: a very special Intimate Conversation between long-awaited interstate guest Gerard Ashworth (Modern Murder, Electric Ferret) and local comics broadcaster John Retallick (http://thecomicspot.blogspot.com/).
Week 3: join two of the funniest, filthiest cartoonists in Australia for a chat about why poos, wees, farts, boinks, taints and scrotes are really, really funny.
Week 4: the unexpected launch of THE SEXY MEN OF AUSTRALIAN COMICS 2009-2010 FINANCIAL YEAR CALENDAR! Your host is the dashing Bernard Caleo.
Where: Bella Union bar, Trades Hall
Corner Lygon and Victoria St, Carlton, Melbourne.
