About the artist
Tell us about this design.
I personally think Goldilocks is a freeloading little nuisance. But from her point of view, I guess I'd want some sort of revenge for the trauma of being woken by three wild animals.
The moral of the original story of course was not to remain in any house you blatantly stole from.
Where are you from?
Your mum. Bahahah.. heh... No wait. That joke doesn't work here. MY mum. I need to think these things through.
What has been your most adventurous moment?
I once mixed all the different kinds of soft drink at a restaurant into the same cup. That's like Coke, Solo, Diet Coke and Raspberry in the SAME. CUP. I live dangerously, man.
What has been the most valuable advice you've been given?
"Please do not press this button again."
If you had a theme song, what would it be?
"If"? There is no "if". When I wake up, Queen's "Princes of the Universe" blares across my sleepy Melbourne suburb, and the countdown to me becoming the Highlander is all kinds of on.
What is your favorite thing about fables?
That the originals were all about either a) people trying to get their "thang" on or b) blood. We may think we're a much less reserved society today, but the original tales of some of our "classics" are a little more... well... grim. Or racy. Cinderella's slipper wasn't always glass.
Little Red Riding Hood vs. Goldilocks: which would win the battle?
Neither of them really has fighting qualities as such. Goldilocks was initially just a mooching coward, and Little Red honestly has cognitive issue if she can't immediately tell a cross dressing wolf from her own grandmother. Right then. Goldilocks is the clear winner, because she can at least identify a wild animal without trying to flatter their damned teeth.
Describe the strangest shirt you own.
I think hidden somewhere in the back of a closet is the shirt I wore about a decade ago when I worked at a fast food restaurant. Visually it's not striking. But it has magic powers. Really. When you wear it, it magically transports you to a place of pain, torment, frying oil and rude, drunk people.
What would be your dream project to work on?
Reeeeeeally should make a start on all those comic ideas I want to do.
Any shout outs?
Yes. To friends. Family. Compatriots. Compadres. Companions. Companies. Computerised comrades. Combinations of commonfolk. I'm always a little fearful of naming specific people because I'll miss someone out. But I'm thankful to all who help me with this stuff and all who enjoy it just the same.
