Tim Stiles is the creator of Cthulhu Williams, and today, we are interviewing him. What excites me about this interview is that not only has he successfully funded his Kickstarter campaign for his comic “Cthulhu Williams”, (we all love success stories, right?) but he’s a down to earth creator who values his artists and skills, and has worked in the Killeroo ‘verse that Darren Close has created.
We are really spoilt for choice this week. Mike Barry, the creator of “Action Tank” – a 100 page graphic novel, gets interviewed by MCA Studios – the third comic creator we have interviewed this week!
Mike is a local Sydney creator, and has been doing comic art for quite a number of years. He has worked with other creators over those years, and it’s now time to get ready for “Action Tank”. You can support his Kickstarter here.

I met Dan Gilmore a few years ago, I cannot recall if it was at a local drawing group, or an event where he was selling his comics, but since then, I have had the chance to chat with him from time to time, and watch him at his art.
His design and art skill are apparent in his comics, and his stories are engaging and thought provoking. I had the chance to ask him some questions recently, and this is what we talked about, mostly I just asked questions, and he answered.

Matt Nicholls is a story-teller from Melbourne, creator of Boy In A Box Productions, and overseer of Indie Comics Previews. Primarily, he’s a writer, creator of several great titles, and our next subject in our independent creator interviews. He has held booths at both Oz Comic Con and Supanova in Melbourne, the Sticky Institute’s zine fair, ZICS, and has successfully funded Kickstarter projects for his book “Don’t Shut The Door“. So when it comes to writing, we’ll show you what Matt’s got.
Stephen Kok is the creative genius behind “Tabby“, and several other successful graphic novels, and has another on the way! I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to interview Stephen and find out a little more of what he does and what his graphic novels are all about!
Stephen is a creator and writer of many graphic novels, and it’s a real treat to read through his website about what he is working on next, which is a graphic novel called “Blue“. I can’t wait for this one!
“Tabby” has been accepted into over 100 library catalogues (no pun intended!) across Australia and New Zealand.
One of the best things about my job will be talking to a variety of comic artists, and today I’m bringing you the very first interviewee – Liam Anthony.
Please grab a cuppa and learn a bit more about what Liam does, and enjoy the interview. (more…)
So what is Metro Collective Arts Studio and who am I?
My name is Kay Aspden, I’ve been a creative for many years. I originally grew up in Melbourne, and excelled in art during high school. If I had’ve stayed in Melbourne, I would have studied animation, having been inspired so much by Disney movies like “Beauty and the Beast”. When the family moved to Queensland, my interest in art dwindled to pretty much nothing by the time Year 11 rolled around. (more…)
