This weekend is The Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal. Anyone trying to find respite from all the comics coming to town might head to Farrer’s, the lovely local tearoom, but even that place is going to be filled with the stuff in the form of an exhibition of my work. I’ve also made 100 teabag comics on the secret origin of Kendal Mint Cake and will be giving a short talk as part of the Myriad Editions Quick Strips event. Come along, if only for a cuppa.

Teabag Theories 2

The micro-comic-in-a-teabag returns with Teabag Theories 2: The Primordial Brew. This volume explores the origins of life with a tea themed twist and is available now along with volume 1: Gravitea. Go put the kettle on, then click here.

Teabag Theories and a few of my other comics are also available at Impossible Books, a great new online mail-order that specialises in independent and small press comics. They stock the likes of Becky Cloonan, Michael Deforge, Gabrielle Bell, David Ziggy Greene and loads more so I’m thrilled to be a part of it.

Here’s my second strip for Shots magazine, featuring some Oscar-worthy eyeball acting.

I’ve also launched an online store selling some of my recent work. Feel free to have a browse.

Teabag Theories

What do you get when you mix tea with the mysteries of science? Teabag Theories, my new micro-comic-in-a-teabag. Volume 1: Gravitea will be on sale tomorrow at the Comiket fair at Central Saint Martins. There will be biscuits.

If you can’t make it down and would like a copy teleported straight to your door, please click here.

Shots Strip

Very chuffed to report that I’ve started a regular strip for Shots magazine, taking an irreverent look at life in the wonderful world of advertising and film. Here’s the first strip, out now, featuring a series of career making (or breaking) decisions.

Desert Island Comics

I recently had the pleasure of choosing my desert island comics for the Forbidden Planet International blog. It was tough to whittle it down to just eight choices, but here are the results, in no particular order.


Some snaps from my recent trip to the Angoulême International Bande Dessinée Festival. Such an inspiring celebration of comics in all its forms. The quality and quantity of work was staggering. Amazing croque monsieurs too.
