Distro Mayhem in the Capital

Last Saturday I received the copies of my publication, all 2000 of them. It's a daunting thing to think of all those copies of my work out there! I spent the afternoon handing it out at the Highbury and Islington tube station. It was a funny experience, on the whole people took it without a so much as a word.

A few interested individuals asked what it was, and for more information about Islington Exhibits. The very first guy I offered it to replied that he didn't want it because he already had a copy! My friend Ellie pointed out that people like to have something to read when they sit on the train. It was so hot on Saturday that I worried they might equally have liked the idea of a free fan.

Here's a couple of pages from the sketchbook I kept whilst on a residency for Islington Exhibits.

Tomorrow from 4pm-5pm I'll be standing outside Highbury and Islington tube station handing out the comic for the festival. Come, come say hello and I'll give you a copy.

Wow, Woha, Hold the Phone!

There's a new issue of l'Episode in town. It carries my story of supernatural discovery 'No Word of a Lie', the work of my close compadre Leon Sadler, an excellent strip by Lisa Lugrin & Clement Xavier, and the continuation of a really lovely piece by Manuel Clard. All this and a beautiful cover and little strip by Aidan Koch. Honestly folks this comic is great, I feel very proud to be a part of it. As I said in my last post I'll find out where to get hold of it online and let you know. Until then I have a few copies so if you're interested drop me a line.

In other news, here's a page from a piece I've been working myself into the ground for.

I'll be standing outside the Highbury and Isington tube station from 4pm next Saturday handing out copies of the whole thing for free as part of the Islington Exhibits festival (that is if all goes well regards the printing, I'll let you know if there are any further developments). It's twelve painted pages printed in tabloid format by the lovely folk at The Newspaper Club (www.newspaperclub.co.uk).


Hello friends,

I hope you're finding time to enjoy this amazing weather, indeed I hope the weather where you are is as amazing as here in Brighton, sunny Brighton you might say. Sadly I'm locked into deadline hell, so for the past three weeks and for the next ten days, I'll be doing nuthin' 'cept drawin'.

But at the end of this work imposed life amongst the shadows I look forward to stepping out, blinking into the bright sunlight. My only fear is that my white, white skin might dazzle drivers on the busy road by my house and cause chaos and death as yet unknown on British highways.

I thought I'd post a page from the publication I've been working so hard on. This comic is being produced as part of my residency for the Islington Exhibits festival at the end of this month. For a while now I've been working at a housing project called St Martins in London. St Martins is a provides care for people who are diagnosed with serious mental illness. During my time there I've been keeping a diary in my sketch book, an edited version of this will be published and distributed for free on the 26th of this month from 4pm outside Highbury and Islington tube station.

I'll also take this opportunity to let know that the lovely folk over at Avoid the Future have see fit to review my comic, Pneuma. Here's a link:


And my strip 'Green Fireball' has been included in L'episode 2. In my humble opinion L'episode 1 was one of the most exciting anthologies I've read in a long time, number two is just as good. The book is published by Lisa Lugrin and Clement Xavier at NA in France. I'm unsure if it can be purchased online, I'll find out and let you know.
