One Man’s iSland Unto Himself. Compilation by 


Explore the iSland.

For my HSC (year twelve certificate) art major work I submitted this ten page comic. It was the year 2001 and life was tumultuous as teen years often are but I managed to set aside five days if I remember correctly to belt this out before it was due. If you look hard enough you can even see the pencil underneath the ink where I hadn’t even the time (or energy) to rub them out before I handed it in.

This was also before I had photoshop, much less a computer to run it, so all those ugly error made with the black felt tip (to my immense frustration) had to remain. I endeavoured to keep these uploads as true to the originals as possible with one exception; the solid blacks are true solids in these pages where the originals exhibited the pen strokes from the permanent marker I used.

Stay tuned for the Director’s Cut versions where I’ll correct the inking error and add colour

    This is something I threw together to celebrate the ressurrection of my old school art project. The spelling of “iSland” isn’t supposed to be a parody of i”blank” but instead a mere mistake in the inking process that had to be followed through. Damn ink really never seems to budge no matter how hard you rub it!
