The Big Prawn

A little while back I was contacted by the good people of ‘Paper Radio’ to provide an illustration for a podcast. Being a bit of a podcast fan, especially of narrative fiction / non fiction (check out ‘Getting On with James Urbaniak’, ‘The Truth’, The New Yorker Fiction Podcast’ to name but a few), I quite enjoyed the idea.

The story is also quite evocative of searing Australian summers, and the kitsch elements which feature in our lives, so the subject matter was also ‘right up my alley’. All in all I think it turned out well – you can hear the podcast when it is broadcast on Sunday October 26 2014 during the 3pm show ‘Radiotonic’, broadcast on Radio National.

Update: Happily, this production has also since been featured on ‘The Truth’ 🙂
