Maralinga spins an alternative history from the 1956 British nuclear tests in the Woomera. Three hundred years later a ruined, irradiated, post-apocalyptic Australia is a place where monsters are real and one girl, the last of an isolated and dying community in Melbourne's south, launches on a desperate journey to find sanctuary and a mythical inland sea.

In September, we are printing up the first part of Maralinga. It's 36 pages, available for pre-order and going to be beautiful.

Update 07/05/2014

It was announced earlier this week that myself and Jen have been awarded the 2014 ASA picture book illustrators grant for Maralinga. We're extremely excited, a little speechless and still pinching ourselves. Thanks to the ASA, the Australia Council and the judging panel and congrats to the other winners and all those shortlisted!

(You can see the other winners and the shortlist here).

Update 04/12/2013

Hello to everyone looking at this for the first time. Or even the fourth. Since we launched yesterday we've been positively overwhelmed with the outpouring of interest, support and excitement for our little comic venture.

So thank you to everyone who has dropped us a note to say how much they enjoyed the first part, tweeted, retweeted or face booked the link or just nodded their head sagely in our direction like Robert Redford at the end of Jeremiah Johnson. You're all brilliant humans!
