absurdity, 2018

I am an artist who is also a chartered accountant that was head-hunted to work for the public service for a multi-billion-dollar project. I have written and drawn a non-fiction, laugh-out-loud book about the absurdity of my everyday life during this period of time.

absurdity is a depressingly funny grown-ups picture book that shares my experience of working in the public service through a collection of stories, drawings and observations. The book can be read from start to finish, or the reader can read single stories and jump around the book.

There are no grand events taking centre stage. There is no traditional story or plot for you to follow or escape in. There are no main characters, instead there are people who fade in and out.

absurdity is a work about the human condition that holds a mirror to the minutia—the understated importance of everyday life. After all life takes place in the detail.
