Firstly I have to thank my wonderful wife and fun loving nieces for all their help at the stand, as well as my brother Joe and my former partner in crime David Tang!! It was great to see so many new and familar faces at the Sydney show and my thanks to all the good people that came by to support me. It also helps to be neighboured with the uber talented (and popular) Stewart McKenney...
"International design champion ... Mr Tang returns!"
"Sketch monkey sketch!"
I'm kicking myself for forgetting my camera, 'cause the cospaly was outstanding, I was busting to meet the Immomens but I only got a very brief chat in (more gushing on my part..)
Luckily, I managed to sneak away from my stand on the Saturday, to attend a talk by the legendary Joe Kubert... wow, what a mild mannered inspirational speaker. He shared insightful knowledge, and some great old stories about his artistic journey... warmed the depths of my geeky heart.
But I gotta thank my mate Tim McEwen for personally introducing me to Mr Joe Kubert, as he effortlesly sketched Tim a sweet little portrait of Sgt Rock... then Tim also managed to get a photo of Mr Kubert and myself... Tim you ROCK!!!
