Throughout 2018 and 2019, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation supported a series of graphic novel workshops for four aspiring creators on Arrernte Country (Alice Springs), with mentors Wolfgang Bylsma and Brenton McKenna.

The results of these workshops were three graphic novels; Mixed Feelings, Exo Dimensions, and Storm Warning, written and illustrated while the creators were still in high school.

These books address topics such as climate change, intergenerational trauma and healing, and two-way cultural learning against the backdrop of life in Central Australia.

Storm Warning Vol. 1

A Stick Mob Graphic Novel, produced in partnership with theIndigenous Literacy Foundation

Written by Lauren Boyle and illustrated by Alyssa Mason

The storm is just the beginning...

Skai receives a visit from a friend whose life is unravelling, just as a massive storm takes hold. With natural and human-made disasters surrounding them, Skai, Aiden, and those they gather close, must rely
on each other to survive the catastrophic chain of events unleashed by the storm.

"Storm Warning is scary and suspenseful and sassy and a wee bit sexy all in under fifty pages worth of set-up. It’s exactly the kind of compelling I want in my stories, with the pace as fast as the movement of your eyes as you scan from panel-to-panel racing to the next climax." -Best-selling author Maria Lewis, from her foreword.

Exo Dimensions Vol. 1

A Stick Mob Graphic Novel, produced in partnership with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation

Mutants, Cyborgs, failed clones and emotional wounds. Exo-Dimensions is uncompromisingly raw and heartfelt.

A roller coaster ride into central Australian Indigenous creation stories, interwoven through family relationships and sheer adventure!
The past catches up with the future in intimate moments of connection and mayhem.

"What Seraphina has created with Exo Dimensions feels like an explosion of imagination, somehow captured on the page. It bursts at the seams with new ideas. It pushes at the edges of each panel. Every page brings with it another shocking, startling, hilarious, devastating revelation." - Eisner-shortlisted graphic novelist Campbell Whyte, from his foreword.
