Now available, the Complete Freedom Scorned! This project seems to have spanned the history of this little blog, starting as a one-off sketch back in 2012, and is now a complete narrative, available to buy from comixology. Cover Gallery About Freedom Scorned You can read more about the book on it's own little mini-site, but, in short, it's the tale of man seeking freedom from the trappings of life without considering the consequences. He's helped into a fresh living hell by the devil girl living in his bathroom mirror. How does he get back to his real life? What does his demonic temptress do during the daytime in our world? Go take a look on comixology!...

Creating Comics at the Burnley Literary Festival

I had a primal, neandarthal life drawing session at Studio 22b this week. The theme for the session was prehistoric cave drawing. In keeping with the concept I left the ipad pro in my bag and went to it armed with nothing but earthy coloured charcoal. Lots of excellent, dynamic poses from the model and appropriate cave/mood lighting empowered my inner caveman...

I'm branching out, with the launch of Ginger Jam Comics. This may sound rather grand, especially as right now I have a total of one self published book (actually, hurrah!  I have a book).
