Tim Molloy (New Zealand) makes weird art, mostly in the form of comics and watercolour paintings. He is inspired by the occult, religion, horror, science fiction, psychedelia and a lifetime of bizarre dreams. Tim’s work is an ever-expanding and interconnected web of strange images and tales soaked heavily in delusion, confusion and a general sense of unease and in which gags and tentacles cavort and writhe in equal measure. Tim’s ‘Mr Unpronounceable’ books have garnered a cult following. ‘Mr Unpronounceable and the Sect of the Bleeding Eye’ won Best Graphic Novel at the Aurealis Awards in 2015 and his his self-righteous, delusional ‘Necromancer’ has won him multiple Ledger Awards in Australia. Tim has also featured as a panellist at various writers festivals, including The Ubud Readers and Writers Festival in Bali.
