Summer Events

This summer I was fortunate enough to be involved in a couple of great events, the first of which was the Edinburgh International Book Festival. I co-hosted a late-night comics-making extravaganza alongside fellow Nobrow authors Joe Sparrow and William Exley. We managed to get the entire audience involved, resulting in hundreds of pages being drawn and displayed. The second event was a signing at the Whitechapel Gallery, as part of the London Art Book Fair. As autumn approaches the comics festival season begins, so more news on this soon…




This year’s ELCAF was a memorable one for me. I was part of a Nobrow signing with Joe Sparrow and William Exley, doodling in copies of Lost Property. I was on a panel alongside Philippa Rice and Sam Bosma, chaired by Andy Oliver of Broken Frontier, discussing self-publishing. I also launched a new 16 page comic called Epsilon. It follows the final conversation between two companions and I’m hoping it’ll be the start of a bigger story. It will be available in stores soon, but in the meantime drop me a line if you’d like a copy.

Cover Versions


I was honoured to be a part of this project created by Robin Harman. Fourteen artists were tasked with redesigning an album cover of their choosing, resulting in an exhibition at Orbital Comics and a print run with proceeds going to Brain Tumour Research. I chose Sign O’ the Times by Prince. You can see the other covers here and a short post about my process here.


Lost Property Launch

I’m having a Lost Property launch do at Gosh! Comics on Friday 24th. There will be booze, badges and baked goods. Oh and books. Hope to see you there.

Out Now

After several drawings and a few thousand cups of tea, Lost Property is finally here. Big cheers to everyone for their support, especially the team at Nobrow. Also well done to Gerald for finding that long lost object…

The book is available from all good shops and can be ordered here.

Every Object You Ever Owned

Here’s a short teaser video I made for Lost Property. A huge thanks to Slancio Music for creating the track. More details on the book’s launch coming very soon.

Lost Property is getting some great previews courtesy of Broken Frontier and Down The Tubes, so a big thanks to them. Meanwhile I’ve been beavering away on a teaser trailer for the book, which I’ll post on here soon. The book is out in March.

Lost Property

My first book, Lost Property, is being published by the fine folk at Nobrow as part of their 17×23 series. The story follows Gerald Cribbin, a postman who finds every object he ever owned stored in the basement of a local lost property office…

The book is out early 2015 and can be pre-ordered here.

Meet Gerald Cribbin

Some early sketches of Gerald Cribbin, the character from my new book Lost Property, out next year by Nobrow.

Return to The Lakes

Today I’m off to Kendal for The Lakes International Comic Art Festival. I’ll be selling my usual wares including a special edition Teabag Theory that claims Kendal Mint Cake might make a suitable snack on the moons of Saturn. Sort of. It was a brilliant festival last year and there are loads of great guests making an appearance (including Scott McCloud, Boulet and Becky Cloonan) so I’m chuffed to be a part of it.
