Shots Strip 5

My recent Halloween themed strip for Shots magazine, Dawn of the Director. A fairly accurate portrayal of what I’m like at ludicrously early hours on set.

Tiny Pencil

Last weekend was the Thought Bubble festival in Leeds, a wonderful frenzy of comics in all shapes and sizes spread across 3 huge halls. In addition to my usual wares I had the pleasure of selling Tiny Pencil issue 3, the latest anthology book featuring comics and illustration produced purely with pencil. Alongside my two page tale (called Portrait of an Exorcism) are contributions by Renee French, Barnaby Richards, Isabel Greenberg and Jeremy Holmes to name a few, so it’s well worth a look. Get your copy here.

Shots Strip 4

It’s a case of lens envy in my latest strip for Shots magazine.

Last week I gave a short talk at Process, the monthly workshop and discussion group at Gosh! Comics, about my recent exhibition at The Lakes International Comic Art Festival. A write-up of the event can be found here, including Lorenzo Fiorini’s tips from the great Eduardo Risso and a watercolour demonstration by Richy K Chandler.

Lakes Festival

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.

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.
