The Project

Read A. B. Paterson’s Poem

One of the first things my grand­fa­ther Papa Lov­ing told me when I first told him I was going to major in art was, “I always enjoyed a good comic in the news­pa­per, you should make one”. After going through many years of school and now hav­ing chil­dren on my own, I believe my grand­fa­ther was quite right. So I have cho­sen to use A.B. Paterson’s beloved poem of The Man From Snowy River. As this was a poem that was read to my grand­fa­ther when he was but a small child, per­haps no older then my own now. So, in the weeks and months ahead I will be releas­ing more art from The Man From Snowy River. I plan to take the poem and illus­trate for it to be made into a one issue comic book that will ven­ture to keep to the spirit that was best expressed by Pater­son. As the project nears to an end I will be giv­ing more details, Be sure to stay tuned for more information.
