VERY long overdue, but i finally got my scanner fixed! Couple of photos from Supanova Sydney. 

1) When you ask Tyler Hoechlin to do ‘Blue Steel’ cause you think it’ll be funny but instead you’re devastated because…well LOOK. Also in all my photos with him, I was terrified to actually touch him, which I regret.

2) I asked him to draw a grumpy face! He was really cute, and concentrated so hard on drawing it. And um, originally I meant to do a giveaway with this or something but then he started writing my name (he’d just signed something else for me) and I couldn’t exactly tell him to stop and do another one…so oops. 

Remembering all this is making me wanna go to Wolfsbane in London next month…!!


I’m psyched to announce the launch of the first volume of a new sketchbook series I’m developing - Scary Sketches. They’re A5, perfect bound books, and the first is 50 pages of all the pencil and ink original scanned sketches of my best digital illustrations, characters, creatures and fan art.

I wanted to put together a book that shows a bit of my process and acts as a companion piece to my gallery - and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.If you’re interested in one the price for the signed sketchbook (with a small ink sketch in the front!) is $25 AUD + shipping. You can message or email me at austenmengler@gmail.com to place an order and I’ll be sure to get one out to you as soon as I can.

I’ll also have them at the upcoming conventions I’ll be exhibiting at Perth, Sydney and Brisbane next three weekends, as well as on my new website once I get the Store section up and running. Check out - www.austenmengler.com to have a look and let me know what you think. To see which Australian shows I’m at next check out my “Events” tab on my new site.

Thanks guys and gals and ghouls, and all the best!

A preview shot of an on location shoot and shot alongside @instaxhype! Definitely liked this place and will keep it in mind the next time I shoot. Group shoots are a different challenge compared to individuals. Mainly because you’re presented with the challenge of how to pose everyone and getting multiple people to hold different poses long enough to get your shot. Add the fact that people’s eyes dart around because that’s what eyes do. So I always take at least 4 shots of a single pose when it’s a group. Up to 10 when it’s massive groups in the hopes that at least one photo will have everyone looking their best at the same time.
