3fistedcomicsComic book enthusiasts take note. We’ve lined up three of Perth’s finest creators to speak about writing, illustrating and publishing graphic novels. Wolfgang Bylsma (managing director of Gestalt Comics), Justin Randall and Anton McKay will take us through the ins and outs of their craft.

Wolfgang Bylsma has managed his own creative agency since 1995. Having worked in tertiary education, sound design, web development and brand strategy he co-founded Gestalt Publishing in 2005 where he continues to serve as Managing Director and Principal Editor.

Justin Randall is a design lecturer for Curtin University, a commercial illustrator and a graphic novelist. He’s worked on titles such as 30 Days of Night, Silent Hill and is currently producing his own graphic novel series called Changing Ways.

Anton Mckay has a day-job and a cat. He’s contributed a few short comix-stories to WA publisher Gestalt Comics “Character Sketches” and “Flinch” anthologies. He’s currently working on his first graphic novel, painfully slowly. He writes abysmal biographical notes about himself.

Gestalt Comics will be setting up an exhibition of comic artwork and a book stand at the event, we’ll have Skye Ogden’s animated video clip for Japanese band Yongen on show and Anton McKay will entertain us with his musical stylings.

This event will be held at The Rosemount, Cnr Angove and Fitzgerald St, North Perth. Seats are limited so be sure to get there on time.

The AGDA(WA) General meeting will be held prior, at 5:45pm. AGDA members attending the AGM will receive FREE entry to 3 Fisted Comics.
