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, […]

The Smiths – a tribute

It was thirty years ago that a band from Manchester released their first single ‘Hand In Glove’. For the next four years they released the songs that made me laugh, made me cry and definitely changed my life even if they maybe didn’t save it. I’m not going to try and tell you how great […]

Pretty Girls Make Graves (remastered)

During the second year of my illustration degree and shortly after completing the original version of Pretty Girls Make Graves, the artist and (renowned cat drawer) Jim Medway came to give what was a very interesting talk at the college and then spent the afternoon looking at students’ portfolios. On seeing this comic, he suggested […]
