Hey! I’d like to say thank you to everyone at Manchester MCM Comic Con last weekend! It’s one of my fave MCM’s of the year so it was lovely to be back. I had a laugh sat between Chibby Shibby and Sian Jefferson.
Special thanks to my sister, Lisa for minding the table while I went to the loo and fetched water and stuff. <3 and thanks to Nikki Stu for the super adorable Oddish drawing and to MrDarkWho for the drawing of Jay from MiscFits!

Thank you to everyone at London MCM Comic Con May 2016!! I’m really sorry I was pretty sick for most the weekend and missed a lot of people! James did a great job manning the table for me and looked after me in the evenings. Thank you so much! I really appreciate the help! Considering how ill I was, I actually manged to have a fun weekend.
The next comics events will be in July. I’ll be at Orbital Comics (London) on Saturday 9th for Small Press Day (event times and info coming soon) and then Manchester MCM Comic Con 30th-31st (in the Comic Village). See you there!
Don’t forget that you can order comics, zines and merchandise online though my Etsy shop! Thanks!

Thank you to everyone at Comica Comiket yesterday! I had a really lovely time sharing a table with Kripa Joshi, the creator of Miss Moti and watching the drawing parade.
The next event will be London MCM Comic Con. You'll be able to find table CL7 in the Comic Village section of the event. There will be Comic Village ceiling banners and a map in the show guide. I will have a full table this time so I have space for a folder of original drawings. I have around 400 hand folded free mini comics to hand out, so please come say hi!

The comic page is from a short autobio story I drew for the Laydeez Do Comics Birmingham Hometown anthology. (the next LDC Birmingham event will be on Monday 4th April) I have some events news so it felt fitting to include the page here...
Thank you to everyone who stopped by my table at InZine Fest #5. It's always a lovely relaxed atmosphere and I had a great time chatting to local comics friends Joe Krawec, Timothy Conroy and Rees Finlay.
The next event will be the Birmingham Comics Festival - I'll be sharing a table with Joe Krawec and Angus Medford who will be launching their new comic Blood. (I wont be taking the folder of original drawings to this event due to space) I will have free mini comics to hand out.
I can also now confirm a 1/2 table at Thought Bubble! I'm super excited because it's my favourite event of the year. The convention will held on the first weekend of November.
A up to date list of events can be found on the blog sidebar (more added once confirmed) - Please don't forget I have an Etsy shop which ships world wide.

Thanks to everyone at Birmingham MCM Comic Con this weekend! I had a good time hanging out in the comic village! My next event will be the InZine Fair #5 - a free event in Coventry on Saturday 26th March 2016. I wont be taking the drawing folder or full merchandise to this one but I will still have free mini comics to hand out! Thanks!
The gig sketches are from a great little event I went to in Digbeth. There was a film screening of Whiplash and live jazz music by Jonathan Silk (drums), Richard Foote (trombone), Stella Roberts (piano), Sean Gibbs (trumpet), Tom Bunting (bass) & Toby Boalch (saxophone). More information about Nadafilm events on facebook. (more gig sketches on my music blog)

Thank you to everyone who came by my table at Liverpool MCM Comic Con. Sorry for setting up a bit late, that was the earliest train available. Sorry if I missed you on Saturday evening, I was unwell and when the convention hall got quieter I decided to leave early to rest up for the next day. Table neighbors, venue & MCM staff and convention punters were all lovely at this show, thanks for looking out for me!
I'll be at Birmingham MCM Comic Con at the NEC this weekend - you can find my table CD4 in the Comic Village (there should be maps available in the show guide - which should go online in the next couple of days). I will have free mini comics to hand out, so please come say hi! More events listed in the blog sidebar or you can order online through Etsy.
