I learned an important lesson last week… drawing and talking to an audience at the same time is really freaking hard.
Also I swear a lot when I’m nervous.
We had to argue that Canberra is good for arts, that you don’t ‘Got to Get Out of This Place’ to get somewhere.
Yeah. Uh huh.
Watch the disaster unfold before your eyes, it is kind of hilarious but also something I wish I’d thought about in a little more detail before I did it in front of a giant squished up crowd in the stinking hot summer.
Also please watch Chris Endrey save the day and go back and watch Julia Winterflood start it all in style. Phew! We WON!
Ironically ten minutes before this debate started I posted my application to the Centre for Cartoon Studies in Vermont, which I think you will find is not anywhere near Canberra.
