Campbell looks forward to meeting all of his fans in Melbourne in March 2020.
Campbell will give a Q&A panel each weekend, and sign autographs throughout Saturday and Sunday in Melbourne.
Further information on Campbell’s panels will be released closer to the convention.
Campbell Whyte was born in Perth and has lived there for most of his life. His comics explore his homeland through a mix of the autobiographical and the fantastical.
His Eisner nominated graphic novel series, Home Time, is a distinctly Australian fantasy work about a group of primary school age children who fall into their local river and find themselves swept away to a magical forest of the imagination. The series has been met with critical acclaim, winning a slew of awards and having Shaun Tan describe it as being: “Beautifully realised, funny, smart, weird and surprisingly epic in scope, Home Time is also just plain brilliant.”
When not making comics, he teaches comics making at the children’s art school, Milktooth, that is run by himself and Elizabeth Marruffo.
