    Merry Petemas, everyone.
Well, actually, happy birthday to my buddy with the pug fascination, Peter Yong. If everyone would like to now draw PUGS and flood him with some pug love. He would squeal like a little girl for real I think.

AMLBy Matthew K Hoddy is about a trio of soldiers in mecha suits (and their VTOL transport) that punch mutants. A lot. It is inspired by anime Matt watched on morning TV when he was but a child.

    QUICK NOTE IN REGARDS TO THE BEER ART SHOW/ COMIC

    Thanks to everyone that got their artwork into me over the weekend! They are all great pieces. Funny, introspective, emotional, and also kinda weird. A good cross section. Unfortunately, there was not enough submissions to put together a book. There is enough for a little zine of sorts. Which will be easier to put together and also means the deadline has shifted.

    Your artwork for the show will need to be framed/ mounted and delivered to me or the bar by the 23rd of April. Preferably before. The show itself will be launched on the 27th (a Sunday). So those that couldn’t get your art done for the book, there is still PLENTY of time to get it done for the show.

    The art show will also serve as a going away party for Caitlin, Luke, Nick & myself. As we fly off to Canada on the 30th.

    To be included in the zine, I’ll need your scanned hi-res art by the 14th of April.

    So those of you that had issues with the timing, good news is there’s an extra month and a bit to get it done!

    Yay!

    TL;DR: No more book, possibly a zine. Dead line is by the 23rd for framed artwork. 14th April for the zine. Delivered pieces to the bar or myself. Launch party is also going away party for a few of us. GO GO GO!

    After trying out a few different styles I think I’ve settled on this. At least for this 12 pager. Hoping to have it ready by TCAF. May redo in full colour for the full book. Hrm… will see.

    We made this thing here for your enjoyment. But then we also had the idea to go and animate it a little. For further enjoyment.

    Well Caitlin animated it because she is the head animator at Space Pyrates™.

    Can honestly say that it one of the most fun things I have ever worked on and I would like to make more.

    Here is the entirety of the Improv Comic in all it’s animated glory! Enjoy

    BEER ANTHOLOGY SUBMISSIONS!
    Shout out for artists that would like to take part in an art show & anthology all about BEER!

    Alright, Here’s The Deal
    The Scratch Bar here in Brisbane would like to host an art show featuring original comic pages featuring the sweet nectar of the gods we humans refer to simply as ‘beer’. Submissions for the show will also be taken up until mid-March and can be on anything you like. So long as your comic features beer in some form or another. Comics about cider will also be considered. These pages will also be collected into a book!

    The requirements in bullet form!

    • An original narrative comic (sequential art) page in any traditional medium.

    • One to two pages in length.

    • To feature ‘beer’ (or cider).

    • Be at least A5 in size.

    • Hi-res scans be at least 300dpi and emailed to craftbeer.anthology@gmail.com

    • Originals can be delivered to the bar itself or mailed to: PO Box 170, Red Hill, QLD, 4059

    • You will receive a copy of the anthology and can purchase extra copies at a reduced rate.

    • All profits from art sales will be 100% YOURS. The bar takes a 0% commission.

    • Your work must be presentable to be put on display. Meaning it will need to be framed or mounted.

    • Framing or mounting can be organised for you, but will be at your expense.

    Rights
    By submitting your work you understand and assent to your work being printed and sold in the yet to be titled anthology/ book. You retain all creative rights to your work during and after this print run. We just ask you give us first run with it and link to us during the month of the show!

    The Long Form Description
    The Scratch is a self proclaimed ‘dive bar’ located Park rd, Milton, here in Brisbane. It features rotating taps of craft beer from Australia, NZ & around the world. Not to mention an extensive range of bottled beers. Now in its third year of operation it won the Beer & Brewer Magazine’s ‘Best Small Pub/ Bar’ in 2013. So it’s a quality venue. It’s also where we held the launch party for the ‘Space Pyrates: Collected Edition’ in April last year.

    DISCLAIMER: I work there now and still think it’s effing rad.

    I was approached by the owners to put together an art show of comics/ sequential art featuring beer. The anthology was my idea though, because, why not? The owners of the bar are big fans of comics and have a history of fostering art communities. Hosting regular art shows on their walls for as long as they’ve been open.

    As mentioned, all of the submissions will be collected into an anthology. It will be black & white but don’t let that stop you from doing a colour piece. The book will be sold at the bar and any other participating outlets. Any profits from sales of the book will first go to recouping costs (printing, shipping etc.). After that, all proceeds will go to charity. Which charity they’ll go to is yet to be determined. But it will be a worthwhile one to be sure.

    Everyone that submits a piece for the show & anthology will receive a copy of the book. Any extra copies can be purchased for a discounted price. The title of this book is also to determined.

    The show will run for about a month. Any money from the original works that are sold go directly to the artist. The bar takes a 0% commission. That’s right, you get 100% of the profit if your work is purchased.

    Your work will have to be framed or mounted to be displayed. If you want to frame or mount your piece yourself, go for it! Do it however you want. Really. Mixed framing will actually be a positive look for both the show & the bar. If you would like me to choose options for you, that is something I can do! You will be asked to pay for the costs involved with this though. I’ll be going for the best looking, but money conscious, options available. Rest assured, I’ll use my best judgement and choose framing options to that look good for your artwork & the bar.

    That’s it. Go forth and drink! I mean draw! Go, go now!

    Any questions? Shoot them through to: craftbeer.anthology@gmail.com

    Check the bar out on Facebook or on their website.

    Hey! It’s me! On a beer label for an actual beer Caitlin commissioned for my birthday!
I looked a lot like this by the end of the night!
caitlindmajor:

Matt turns 30 tomorrow and I commissioned a special brew, the ‘Hoddenbrau’. A delicious smoked imperial bacon porter. The whole 19 litre keg was drunk in one night by some of Brisbane’s best and brightest comic artists and concept artists.
