Last week I posted Robo/Girl: Home Sweet Home, a new comic by myself and my talented friend A.C.Galaga. I thought I’d take the chance today to tell you a bit more about the working process behind the comic. It might have taken you only a couple of minutes to enjoy our work, but in fact we were developing this idea for five months! So let’s get into it.

What a thrill to present a new comic adventure here at Sunday ink! This story was written by my talented friend A.C.Galaga, and illustrated by yours truly. We’ve been working on this story for many months, and even though it’s short, a lot of work went into every detail.
Acting as character model for our heroine is Melbourne burlesque artist Little Skink. I’ll tell you more about the process later; but for now, take your time and enjoy the comic!

Lovely Sunday inkers! It may well seem that my updates have been less frequent over the past few months, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working away on some great new art. Along with the next volume of Entrepreneurz, my comic-drawing efforts have also been going into a new project with my good friend and creative wizard, A.C.Galaga.
A.C. and I have brewed up a fine and funny tale for your amusement, starring a wandering girl and her robot companion. What kind of trouble finds them, you’ll just have to wait and see.
The picture you see above is just a warm-up sketch, but this week I’m excited to announce that work has begun on final art for the comic! So as ever, thank you for supporting Sunday ink, and keep an eye on the site for more comics, art and stories as they appear.

Hello there! This week our friend Art Giraffe is visiting the classic Edouard Manet painting, Le Dejeuner Sur L’Herbe (“The Luncheon on the Grass”). What a strange and intriguing piece! When it was first exhibited in 1863, it caused plenty of controversy, not least of all because it features a nude figure alongside clothed people. The scandal was heightened by the fact that the figures in the painting were actually identifiable!
It should be noted of course that it wasn’t the first painting to have ever shown clothed figures together with nudes. But Le Dejeuner Sur L’Herbe had the distinction of placing them in a completely informal and contemporary setting. Not only that, the subjects seem to be utterly unconcerned. Outrageous!
Other criticisms of the painting were of a more technical nature; the painterly style of the background and seemingly cavalier attitude to scale were noted. It was as if the figures had simply been planted in an artificial backdrop. Compare the woman in the river with the boat to her right!
I think it’s a brilliant and splendidly baffling painting. It was a real joy to recreate. And if you happen to notice that about an tenth of the left-hand side of my painting is missing, don’t worry, I noticed too. It has to do with the book I copied it from.
