Thought Bubble

In a rare foray into the world of enormous comics conventions, I’ll be making my debut at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend (23rd & 24th September), with my various comics, prints, greetings cards and original drawings for sale.

Find me at table 56a in the Leeds Town Hall Marquee!

Portfolio website

I’ve created a new website for my illustration work – please take a look here:

At present you’ll find my updated portfolio and some other information there. I have plans to add a shop section later this year, where I’ll be selling various brand new comics and prints that I’m working on.

Ashmolean hero

Explore-Protect-SaveHere are a few of the illustrations I’ve created for the forthcoming Heroes and Villains LiveFriday event at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

Ashley here is a heroine inspired by some of the incredible women from archaeological history. She lives her adventurous life by the watchwords ‘Explore! Protect! Save!’ which I’ve tried to capture in the comic strip.

Minoan-jugAs the Aegean gallery, full of Sir Arthur Evans’ wonderful discoveries, has long been one of my favourite corners of the museum, I enjoyed drawing Ashley examining some approximation of a Minoan jug here too.

The event is on Friday 29th January from 7pm. You can find out more about the evening, which promises a host of performances, talks, workshops and more, and purchase your tickets here. Perhaps I’ll see you there!

The Infinite Corpse

I’ve contributed to The Infinite Corpse, an ever-expanding collaborative webcomic about a skeleton named Corpsey. My panels follow Sammy Harkham’s – take a look here.

This project is a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to seeing it grow even more tangled and strange as more people join in. There’s no beginning or end, just dive in and enjoy getting lost in it – you’ll discover lots of brilliant artists too.
