What brings you to our little meetup group in Perth? Do you like to draw or write, or are you just a fan of comics/manga in general?

Illustrate mostly, I haven't really drawn a comic since primary school, which was back in the early 90s for me. I like writing too, not that it's any easier than drawing!

If you are an artist or writer, how long have you been at it for? If not, how long have you been interested in comics/manga?

As long as I can remember, as soon as I could use pencils and crayons basically.

If you are an artist or writer, what are your influences? Even if you're not, are there any comics that have inspired you in other aspects of life?

Katie Cook, Mike Maihack, Bill Walko, Cliff Chiang, Amanda Conner and the Allreds alongside Dave Gibbons, Sy Barry and any of the classic comic book artists. Writers - Any classic SF author, especially Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury and Philip K Dick. Almost forgot Paul Dini and Bruce Timm...

Who or what is your favourtie comic/manga author or series?

Batman, Wonder Woman, Tintin, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) , X-Men, Peanuts, the original Ninja Turtles, FF, She Hulk... that's for starters.

If you're an artist/writer, what are your tools of the trade? Do you prefer to use the computer or good ol' pencil and paper for drawing/writing?

Both.
