About : This eBook is by Matt Huynh participant in Lattice::Sydney. He is a Sydney based comic creator and illustrator. Huynh’s graphic novels span a diverse variety of genres from surrealist fantasy to polemical essays, dramas and autobiography. His comics work has received recognition from Ledger Award for Excellence in Australian Comic Arts and Publishing, the Australian Cartoonist’s Association, ABC and Sydney Morning Herald. His inky, energetic brushwork has appeared on magazines and prints to clothing, accessories, health resources, tattoos, film, performance projections, vinyl toys and dolls. When he’s not at the drawing table, he can be found conducting instructional workshops, public presentations, exhibitions and live art demonstrations. He’s been known to operate under the pseudonym ‘STiKMAN’, having taken a bad high-school nickname to heart.
As part of the Lattice::Sydney project a simple Sketchbook was produced to explore the projects and ideas being generated in the workshop. It was created on the Generator and printed out so that it would be filled in by hand – with space to write, draw, glue and attach. The resulting books are scanned in and remade into eBooks to be shared and distributed.
Lattice::Sydney aims to explore new approaches to creatively transforming our cities and included a workshop with a diverse group of artists and cultural leaders to produce new ideas, perspectives and plans of action. Lattice is part of Proboscis’ larger Lattice East Asia exploring the ways diverse communities engage with their environment and issues of cities and sustainability; viewing the city through the eyes of those who live in it. Lattice is part of the British Council’s “Creative Cities” – a three year cultural and artistic partnership between East Asia and the UK.
