The slightly disturbing Comic Artwork and Illustration of
Everytime I flip through a “Plump Oyster” comic book I get this warm, damp feeling as if the room had suddenly become intensely humid. I get lost on adventures with his crazy-eyed characters, always sweaty and always drooling, in a land filled with strange alien like flora and oozing orifices.

Since 2007, Brisbane based Benjamin Constantine has been steadily building his strange universe through his Plump Oyster comics and paintings. His work has been featured in many national street press magazines as well as international publications like VICE, Rabid Rabbit and Secret Prison.
Check out his comic ‘OYSTER FACE’ - A 40 page comic book about a boy who was evicted from his river-side apartment 50 miles away from the beach and took it upon himself to evolve into shellfish and live in a dank, wet rock-hole by the sea.

My book is finally announced! Costume Quest: Invasion of the Candy Snatchers is an original story set in the Costume Quest universe which I’m creating with Double Fine and Oni Press.
Nicole of the Cake Haute Couture bakery in Bunbury, Western Australia made this beautifully geeky classic arcade game cake at the request of Dimity, a bride-to-be whose fiance, Stephen, loves old school games.
Each side of the three-tiered square cake features a different game - Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Tetris and Frogger. The very top is decorated with a Pong screen with the score depicting Stephen’s age. The board on which the cake sits features an edible joystick, buttons, and coin slot.
Nicole has been making custom wedding cakes since 2007. Visit the Cake Haute Couture website to check out more of her wonderful creations.
