Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival 2021

I just got back from exhibiting at Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival. The last few months has been a wild ride, first with the Kickstarter. And then building up to the weekend at Thought Bubble. It was such a joy to be able to talk to people about my work and show them the Jack…Read moreRead more

The Incal – Down the Rabbit Hole

After watching the Documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, and reading the novel Dune, I knew the next port of call down the rabbit hole was reading The Incal.  Jean Giraud aka Moebius is an artist who I’ve long admired, and yet I had never read any of his work. I think possibly the availability of translations from…Read moreRead more

Book Making – Proof Copy

Seeing this book on the shelf next to other comics in my collection is so surreal. It made the whole thing suddenly feel much more real, and legitimate. Of course seeing it on other people’s shelves will be a much more satisfying moment! I spent a lovely evening having a read through of the comic….Read moreRead more

Jack Astro Kickstarter

The Kickstarter to help me publish a Jack Astro book launches tomorrow! Jack Astro Kickstarter Having a physical book was always the end goal of this project but it took FAR longer than I expected to get here.

Dune – Visualising and Drawing

I decided to finally read the classic sci-fi novel Dune and try visualising and drawing some scenes from the book. Dune is a science fiction classic. However, having started to read it once when I was younger, something didn’t click. So I ignored it for many years. After watching the Documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, I went…Read moreRead more
