info

I live and work full-time making comics in Oxford, UK. I like comics (obviously), sea creatures (particularly crustaceans), aquariums, snails, dolls and figurines and puppets, rainy weather, soup, sandwiches, cartoons, books, films and music. I am unable to make muffins, and this makes me quite sad. I was born in 1984.

faqs

+ Do you go to any conventions/comics events?
I love comics events, and try and get along if I can to as many as I can. I'll keep where and when I'm at an event (and if I have a table or not) on the front page. Hope to see you there!

+ What's your process?
At the moment, I'm sketching straight into Photoshop with an A5 Wide Wacom tablet, printing out onto Bristol board (A3 for most things and comic pages, A4 for tiny things) and lining with a 0.7 HB Mechanical pencil. The pencils are scanned into Photoshop, where they are coloured. Occasionally I will make an illustration from start to finish in Photoshop.

+ Are you represented by an agent?
I am! Represented by Abner Stein.

+ Can I take any of your images for website layouts, icons, my school project, etc.?
Please, please, please email me and ask before doing anything with any of my work! Thank you! Dependant on context you may be able to do so. Just shoot me an email!

+ Can you send me any of your work or files for me to use for website layouts, icons, my school project, etc.?
See above. In some cases I will direct you to the publisher of the work.

+ Can I ask you a question about your work?
Feel free to email me. To make things a little easier, please word questions as specifically as you can, and I will do my best to get back to you.

+ Are you up for doing a comic with me? It's possible! Drop me a line!

+ Will you do commissioned illustrations? Shoot me an email!

+ Are you on AIM/MSN/ICQ etc.?
I don't have any of these programs right now, sorry.

+ Can we do a link swap?
At the moment I'm not doing swaps, my apologies.
