This is a quick update for everyone who has added me and commented on this blog during the past couple of years.
It has been massively appreciated. The support has gotten me through some very difficult creative slumps. A mix of reasons has meant me not being massively active here.
Or on YOUR blog.
I realise this is really poor on my part.
This is going to change. I have a few projects on the way, and I will be posting news, sketches, process etc.
There will be less personal stuff, as I have my very own troll ( Hello Tracy, I can see you ;/).
So here’s to making this a productive space.
Thank you for reading, and thanks for your involvement.
Continuing the clear out of studio stuff. This was a sketch from a sketch.I can’t remember the theme.
I have to admit I’m yet to see Mad Max – Fury Road, but I will get round to it. Draw Furiosa seems to be everywhere in my feeds. I thought I would have a go, and embarrass myself by posting it.
Much better versions by cool artists seen here.
A review of an anthology that I have a strip in.
From Andy Oliver – Broken Frontier.
The niggling night terrors of 40 creators bubble balefully to the surface in Keara Stewart’s unsettling anthology collection mixing comic strips and single illustrations to bring to disturbing life the dreams and nightmares of an astonishing assortment of artistic voices. Within the pages of this often haunting book you’ll find work from some of the most acclaimed graphic novelists in current UK comics
( A section of ‘Dreams Less Sweet’)
Here is a few sketches for a t-shirt design.
The final sketches were not used, but I like these prep drawings.
Below is the finished design. A combination of Zombie Rocky Horror walk, Crouch End clock tower and Crouch End Festival.
If you are around N8 during June, drop by and check out some of the events.
There is also CECAF, which is an awesome cartoon event. Would be great to see you there.
Tracks is now available in Orbital. Also copies of Rain On Glass.
Orbital is great shop, go and say hello to Camila in the West Wing.
Go here :)
I have a new comic available called Tracks. It is similar in theme to my previous outings, Rain on Glass, Same Day return etc.
It’s 32 pages and will sell for £4.
There is no longer an online store to purchase these. So to buy a copy it’s either con appearances or hopefully Gosh and Orbital.
It will be debuting at the Alternative Press takeover. I will be in exhibiting,
sharing a table with Francesca.

The cover for my next comic, Tracks.
The bright colours represent lighter material inside. None of that dark stuff.
Well, 10.000 weeks later and I am putting together Tracks in preparation for print.
I’m looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
If it all comes together, Tracks will be for sale at the Alternative Press take over.
I will be tabling with Francesca, and Next to Sally-Anne.
