Oops, been neglecting the blog again! Not so good when you're in the middle of a blogging competition (*wink*).
Things have been a bit up and down lately. I don't want to go into details, but I don't want to gloss over it either. Ahem.
The main purpose of this post is to flag two things. Firstly, I was interviewed about Kinds of Blue for Kapow!, the comic book review show last week. Episode seven, which contains the interview, went live this morning (25:22 min). The episode focuses on women working in comics, and the interview they did with me occurs at around the 5:54-minute mark. Or you can watch it below (it goes for 3:43 min):
It was lovely to be on the show. I hadn't even heard about it until Tim McEwen (who I met at last year's ASA Comics Masterclass) retweeted something by the producer, Ben Shackleton, who was looking for local comic creators to feature as guests. (Ben also produces and directs Good Game on the ABC.) They shoot in Kings Comics on Tuesday nights, so I made a special trip into the city for that and it was a lot of fun. (Plus it was really cool meeting Al and Sonya, who host and write each episode!)
(Also, apparently I blink. A lot!)
Second thing: as I said in an earlier post, Bec and I are speaking at Moore Women this Thursday night (i.e. tomorrow!) on the topic of the internet, children and parenting. I thought at first that only members of the Moore College community could come, but it turns out that others are welcome too (as long as they're female because it's really a women's event). So come along if you're free! It's in the D Broughton Knox Common Room at Moore College, 1 King Street, Newtown, Sydney at 7:45 pm (entry via Campbell St).
Right, I'd better go finish writing my talk …
