Fil Barlow is dreaming next to his contribution for Dream Another Dream showing how large the over-sized book is.
Over 100 of today's best cartoonists pay tribute to comics' greatest innovator, Winsor McCay, in one giant book.
Winsor McCay was an American cartoonist and animator. He is best known for the comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland (1905–26) and the animated film Gertie the Dinosaur (1914). He is still a huge inspiration for cartoonists today and an innovator of early animation.
Fil's page summarizes Winsor's life and his conflict between working for a large corporation vs personal artistic projects.
If you grew up watching TV animation, shows like Extreme Ghostbusters, Godzilla, Captain N, Alf, Tutenstein or Starship Troopers, or if you want to see early previews for Image Comic's 8House: Yorris, OR you love anything Zooniverse then here is your chance to support Fil Barlow and see new art from all of the above!
Q: Why use Patreon?
A: [Fil Barlow] "Over the last five years I have put so much work into blogs, posts, animations, answering questions from fans, recoloring old production art, all for free and the whole time I was desperately poor. Patreon allows my fans to help me and have access to my process. It's like a tipping jar, and in return for your patronage I'll show you artwork that has never been seen before. Patrons who donate $5+ per month can vote on which projects I'll feature".

Free Comic Book Day
This was the first time Fil had participated in this event. He was anxious there were would be requests for superhero drawings which he politely declined. One of these people was happy to change this request for a Godzilla instead. However there were requests for the many shows he has worked on over the years, including Godzilla, Tutenstein, and Extreme Ghostbusters. He even did a sketch of "Aulian" for the upcoming release of a new comic called 8 House:Yorris to be published by Image Comics in the US. Of course a zoon got out somehow too from his comic Zooniverse!
A zoon who is happy to see yoo!

Homecooked Comics Festival 2015
We were very excited to be a part of it, which ran
over a 3 day period starting with the official opening on the Friday
night at the Snug Gallery, in Northcote. Then on Saturday we were very kindly invited to come along in the afternoon for an "In Conversation" talk with Dean Rankin and Dylan Horrocks. Met some fantastic people there, like Paul Peart-Smith and Thomas
Campi who were special guests. Had a great dinner with them afterwards.
Sunday was the official Market day where we, along with the many local
comic producers, sold our wares to the supportive Northcote general
public who always seem to come out in droves. Finishing with another amazing dinner with all the special guests and
organizers of the festival. Thank you to everyone involved for making it a great day!
