New Patreon!

I’ve recently launched a Patreon; there’s one tier at $1 per month.  Patrons get to read new short comics as they’re made – I won’t be posting them in their entirety anywhere else on the internet! I also post new tarot cards, new illustrations, and any other art as and when it happens.  Read comics, see art, AND read about my creative process for each piece.

There are a couple of public posts, so you can get a feel for what it’s like! I generally post twice a week.  Hope you enjoy!

Dirty Rotten Comics Issue 10

Dirty Rotten Comics Issue 10 is ~full color~ and ~maximum awesome~ and includes my latest short. “Arrival” is about finding out I’d finally gotten my UK visa while waiting for a connection at Preston station. It’s out tomorrow and pre-orders are open now!

DRC10 is not to be missed, and I’m not just saying that because I’ve got a short in it. If you’ve ever wanted to dip your toe into creator-owned indie comics, Dirty Rotten Comics features an awesome variety of UK comics talent.

Sliced Quarterly: An Experimental Comic Anthology

4f39936d78197dd9792e6c04919915a4_original

Sliced Quarterly is an amazing comic anthology that I’ve had the pleasure of working with for the past 3 issues.  They feature 2-4 page shorts by UK based creators that really push the boundaries of what comics can be.  After a successful year of digital only releases, they are now Kickstartering a combined paperback of issues 1-4; 120+ pages of experimental comics, including three short comics by me.

There are some fab rewards, including a few by me, so please do check it out!

Call for Pitches

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week, and artist Holly Keasey and I are launching an open call for contributions to an anthology focused on role of aesthetics within the long-term processing of direct experiences of physical and psychological abuse.

Contributions can be writing, art, comics, or anything in between so long as they are no more than 4 A5 pages and are B&W.  Also, we’re not really interested in pieces that recount experiences of abuse; what we’re after is how creative people use their work to process these experiences.  We’re just looking for pitches right now, so you have loads of time to create your idea.

Check out our Creative Scotland call out for more information about the project and how to apply.

Next, Fort Con in beautiful Fort William on 22 October

Followed quickly by Ex Libris Book Fair on 23 October
