Writer’s Blocks

I first had the idea of creating a comic where you ‘chose’ the story by rolling a set of dice in sequence to determine various possible outcomes of the narrative. One thing led to several others and I ended up choosing 36 iconic images to go on six dice, whereby you could (in theory) tell […]

The Stories So Far

For Thought Bubble 2015 I decided that it was time to draw a line (pun intended) and collect all my previously published comics together in one volume. The six stories have appeared previously in various zines produced for previous comics festivals and by grouping them together it signals the end of the beginning (and hopefully […]

Merry Christmas Our Kid

It was a couple of years ago that I noticed lots of people had ‘Noel’ written in their windows at Christmas time. Being me, I just thought it would be amusing if I stuck a giant ‘Liam’ in my window and see if anyone got the joke. I didn’t, as it happens, but I did […]

This Charming Family

Well, this was just a bit of a laugh really. It all started a year or two back when somehow a conversation led to me colouring Stewie Griffin purple as a parody of the Bigmouth Strikes Again cover. It amused me, so I decided to see if I could replicate all The Smiths single covers […]

Oasis – a tribute

Following on from my earlier graphic discography of The Smiths, here’s my tribute to one of the biggest bands of the 90’s. Oasis – bigger, louder, better. Rock ‘n’ roll stars. A Champagne Supernova. Where were you while we were getting high? Posters and limited edition giclee prints are now available at the Proof Spirit Shop. […]

Songs of Indulgence

It’s a long time since I posted anything on this site – the good news/bad news is that I now have a backlog of stuff to upload. The first, while it’s still vaguely topical, is a comic strip I created for Thought Bubble comics festival last November. Myself and five colleagues collaborated, each producing a […]

Brindle – the story so far…

It’s been a while since I published anything about Brindle Records, or indeed anything about anything, but that’s not to say that nothing exciting has been happening – too much if anything. Anyhow, I thought I should write something and here it is. Since my good friend Max Hambledon started Brindle Records and asked me […]

There is a light

As it’s Morrissey’s birthday, I thought I’d share a piece I created a while back. It was an extension of the series of ‘Northern Front’ screen prints I produced when I found some new toys to play with, namely a laser cutter and the world’s thinnest light box. Using the image from which the print was made, […]
