INDIA

India is a piece i did seventeen years ago, wow! i think its drawn on the back of a old fruit'n'fiber cereal box, probably drawn in front of the fire watching antiques roadshow, wicked.

The Bird Catchers

I can't believe i haven't blog this before its a comic strip that i did about a year ago. It's called "The Bird catchers" its a autobiographical comic inspired by the Gasoline ally strips. Its a story about me and my brother trying to catch birds in the back garden. we spent three years trying to catch birds and went though a range of different contraptions too do so. only to finally catch a blackbird and from being that excited that we'd caught one, that it manage to escape.
but i suppose its all in the thrill of the chase.


Rain Rain go away come again another day

It seems the recent weather has crept into my roughs for my new book. Still not sure on a title yet, but i will keep you up-to-date on my brains activity's.

DREAMING

These are some ideas for a new book I'm working on at the moment. The plot is loosely based around the idea of boredom, overactive imaginations and practical jokes. This time I'm going tackle text and image a try toward a traditional comic book format which will be really fun to experiment with.

BIG PLANS

BLOODY SCRUMPERS

MR TROFIEACO

This is a book that ive been working on for the past six months which was the first project i was set at the RCA. Its a narrative building exercise which we took everyday events and developed them into more exciting narratives. It was really fun what i came out with from those initial ideas. The books called MR TROFIEACO and its about a group of scrumping teenagers and a selfish old man protecting his apples to the bitter end.
