May 29-30: Scribblers Festival family weekend
Scribblers is an annual festival of literature and arts for young people in WA.
This year’s festival sees 26 children’s book authors, illustrators, and all around creatives (including me) meeting at a new venue, the Subiaco Arts Centre.
I’ve got a couple of sessions in the Schools Program that I’m super excited about … plus I’ll be part of the the festival’s Family Program on Saturday May 29 – Sunday 30. Brace yourself for a weekend packed with story battles, LEGO Masters, Book Doctors, Teen Podcasters, and more hands-on creativity than your hands can handle!
Here’s a quick list of my sessions on Sunday May 30th.
WORKSHOP: Drawing Dinosaurs
TALK: Spooky Tales
Free – but bookings essential.
ILLUSTRATOR BATTLE: Pencils Drawn!
Free, no booking required

June 6-7: WA Day festival
I’m presenting at this year’s WA Day festival at Burswood Park:
on Sunday June 6 I’m on the main stage at 2pm, illustrating stories on the spot as suggested by you;(<- this one is cancelled now, apologies!)
- on Monday June 7 I’ll be in the Paper Bird/Writing WA marquee at 12 noon for a joint session with fellow cartoonist and graphic novelist – the awesome, the amazing – Gavin Aung Than (this is still happening).
The event is free, no need to book – just come along.
And FYI: the Paper Bird/WritingWA marquee will have local authors and illustrators all day, both days, so stick around and enjoy the fantastic stories!
