Carnegie Comics Market 2013

Thanks to all that popped along to the Comics Market yesterday. Had a lot of un doing some scribbles, chatting with people about the upcoming comic. Also had the pleasure of having a table next to Frank Candiloro and Matt Nichols, two very approachable great guys who let me pick their brains about comics. Massive thankyou as well to my fiance, Alana who sat there with me all day and ran the table whilst I just scribbled away and talked to people.

It's raining in Melbourne right now. It rains even more in the city state of futuristic Melbourne City. Something moody to ponder as we hit the hay for the night.

Robotics has advanced significantly in future Melbourne, and many separate corporations compete for market share in what is a very lucrative and cut throat consumer industry. Orion industries are one of the prevalent manufacturers providing a lot of the security hardware to the more prolific sectors.

Part of what makes up futuristic Melbourne are the many bits of advertising and signage. Representing the various companies and products, they add to the picture and help to flesh out the character of the city itself.
