In other exciting, non-sheep/goat related news, Ive just received funding to make a graphic novel/picture book based on the town of Yallourn. The town was built in the 1920s grew in the 50s and 60s to become the cultural centre of its region and then was demolished in the 80s so that they could access the brown coal upon which it was built.

The idea is to build up all the images collage-style out of old paper documents that survived the town's destruction.

So thank you very much Australian Society of Authors. And to celebrate, here's a couple of images Ive done so far to try and establish the visual style of the book.
