About Gavin

Gavin Presents at Schools

I absolutely have a blast visiting schools and sharing my passion for cartooning and comics with students. My visit includes telling my story of how I became a cartoonist, drawing demos that students can follow along to, a look behind my creative process, a Q&A session and lots of fun crowd participation.

I’m based in the Perth area, but can also visit other parts of Australia when time permits.

What is Zen Pencils?

Zen Pencils is an exciting and unique new comic form that takes inspirational and famous quotations and adapts them into graphic stories. From icons like Confucius, Marie Curie, and Henry David Thoreau, to Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Calvin Coolidge, to contemporary notables like Ira Glass, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Neil Gaiman---their words are turned into sometimes heartwarming, sometimes sobering stories by cartoonist Gavin Aung Than. Be inspired, motivated, educated, and laugh as you read famous words as never before!
