The Men from NAFA

Every once in a while I get to be part of thing of joy. Like this. As part of Painting Padiham 2018, the Men from NAFA urged the people of Padiham to gift them poems and words that would be launched into space. I was lucky enough to provide ground support in the form of graphic […]

inktober 2017

Inktober’s a great exercise and, though I clearly failed on the drawing per day, I did do drawing – yay! All drawings completed on iPad pro with Apple Pencil. No real inks or pens suffered in the process of making these drawings.

Creating Comics at the Burnley Literary Festival

Creating Comics was a workshop I ran as part of the Burnley Literary Festival. I was invited as a result of my recently published comic, Freedom Scorned (available from comixology submit). The event took place in the basement of the Mechanics Theatre on the 31st October and, I think, went splendidly, thanks to enthusiastic and talented attendees.

Prehistoric daubs at 22b

I had a primal, neandarthal life drawing session at Studio 22b this week. The theme for the session was prehistoric cave drawing.

Issue One of Freedom Scorned is available now from comixology Submit. I also have a mini-site right here on Freedom […]

Dancers at Drink and Draw

Fantastic nights drawing at drink and draw with enthusiastic, if occasionally fidgety, young models showing off a range of dancing skills. ipad Pro now seems like the only drawing implement I’d ever want.

I took the iPad Pro along to life drawing – a session inspired by the work Tamara de Lempicka,  at Studio 22b. iPad Pro is a great drawing tool, alongside the Apple pencil and Procreate app. Taking it to a life drawing session was a really good test – it allowed me all the flexibility […]
