Additional Information


Jonathan McBurnie is an artist, writer and cartoonist, based in Queensland, Australia.

McBurnie began self-publishing comic books at the age ten, and his life has been a series of constant projects ever since. Completing a PhD at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney, in 2014, his thesis and accompanying studio works explored the shifting role of drawing in the digital age. McBurnie approaches his work as a collision of high and low forms, and seeks the narrative propulsion and dense visual language that lies in the tension between these forms.

McBurnie was previously the Creative Director of Perc Tucker Regional Gallery and Pinnacles Gallery, and also writes on occasion, having been published in EyelineCatalogueThe Lifted BrowPenthouse Australiathe Journal of Asia-Pacific Pop Culture and Sneaky, where he was the Visual Arts Editor.

McBurnie is currently working on several projects, including a co-written book of contemporary comics theory for Rutgers University Press, and a soon-to-be-released graphic novel, FLOODLAND, from Canada’s Argle Bargle Books, and several exhibition and small press comic and zine projects.
