Ballarat-based artist Dillon Naylor has been writing and illustrating dark and strange comics since the 1980s. Titles such as ‘Da ’n’ Dill’ appeared in sherbet-filled showbags throughout the 90s, at the same time, underground comic ‘Pop Culture and 2 Minute Noodles’ sat in the shadowy corners of indie record stores.

In 2001, His very popular character ‘Batrisha the Vampire Girl’ first ran in K-Zone Magazine and to celebrate her 20th Anniversary, publisher Comicoz have released Dillon’s first hardcover storybook; ‘Batrisha and the Creepy Caretaker’.

Dillon will discuss his work in comics over the decades – the writing and illustration process behind their creation, followed by a chance to purchase the new, all-ages friendly book and have it signed.
