Meet the Author

The main purpose for this post is below, but l couldn't go past putting an image up. This one's a snippet from a test illustration l did for my Children's Book idea ....

Now for the important stuff, Leia has kindly tagged me so its time for me to answer a few questions. Here's the deal.
A: The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B: Each player answers the questions about themselves.
C: At the end of the post, the player then tags 3 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog

10 years ago: I was studying illustration in Melbourne and getting told by the teachers of the course that "we would never earn any money from it". (Inspirational people weren't they!)

5 Things on my to-do-list today:
1. Get a coat of paint onto a couple of rooms in our house
2. Eat
3. Go to Bendigo to pick up my suit for my mates wedding
4. Eat
5. Eat again

What I would do if I was suddenly a billionaire:

Number 1 would be to travel. Starting in Africa to see what we didn't see there last year (which is a lot) and just going from there. Possibly spending half the year travelling and the other half making my own films (which l would do by decking out a bus and travelling around Australia working from inside as l go) for the rest of my life. l'd invest a little too, but donate most of it to a selection of my favorite charities.

Three of my bad habits:
1. Sleeping in
2. Eating too many dim sims
3. Always starting too many projects at once and never finishing any.

Three places I have lived:
The last 3 have been Echuca, Cohuna and Taylors Hill in Melbourne.

5 jobs that I have had:
Trench digger
Medical Waste Collector
Wine Salesperson
Playback Engineer

5 things people don't know about me:
1. I'm really an alien.
2. I take medication that costs more than l earn in a year
3. I happily pay my taxes (look at number 2 for explanation)
4. I don't care what goes into dim sims. I'll eat em anyway.
5. I'd love to travel around the blues fesivals playing John Lee Hooker, Hendrix and BB King on my guitar. Because people need to hear the blues.
