Page two and three of that comic from before! In real life, Bruce does not have a receding hairline. Sorry, Bruce!! :x (hey, I did say those portraits were from memory)

(And I’ll combine all this into one post, because what the hell: LSA is featured on today, and it’s also a Best American Comics “Notable Comic of 2013!” Wa-hey!)

Who's going to TCAF this year?

It’s me! I am!


That’s why we’ve just launched the Caravan of Comics 2013 indiegogo campaign. Click ye!

Me and five other Australian cartoonists (plus one Australian filmmaker to document the whole thing) are planning a perilous journey to North America in May, to bring our comics and charming accents to TCAF, plus Montreal, Seattle and hopefully elsewhere.

We already have a little funding but we need more! Otherwise it straight up can’t happen.

There are exclusive comics and prints, original artworks, and DVDs on offer to those of you who feel moved from deep within to help us (with money). Plus postcards from our trip, and even dinner with us, if food is a thing you enjoy!

And of course, if you are in North America, and you are going to the same places we’re going, you get to MEET ME, and I get to MEET YOU, and that will be tremendous.

So make yourself a part of the Caravan of Comics 2013. Buy your way in, like a real high roller.

Thank you!

Your pal,

Patrick Alexander

PS. You can follow the Caravan on Twitter and Facebook, plus we have a WEBSITE, good gravy, where you can learn all about us and sigh and swoon and be unable to sleep, all agitated and tangled up in sheets.

PPS. Naturally, your enthusiastic reblogs are the very cream of my strawberry sponge cake. ♥

There’s a really good article about the Squishfacers who went on Caravan of Comics on the back page of today’s Melbourne Age! This is what it looks like in print. You can read the article online here.

And please note: Sarah’s talk at the Emerging Writers Festival takes place 3pm THIS SUNDAY (May 27) at Melbourne Town Hall, and Squishface will have a table at Page Parlour in Fed Square THE SUNDAY AFTER (June 3).

Most of the Caravaners are home, so we’re having a little get-together over at Squishface this Sunday 20 May, from 2pm. Drop by and say hi and we’ll tell you all about our trip and show you 3D photos and go on about how sophisticated we are now we’ve been to Williamsburg.
