The Midland Lo-Operatives Alternative Art Market



Thanks to everyone at The Midland Lo-Operatives Alternative Art Market at The Hare & Hounds yesterday. It was a quiet afternoon, but still lovely to watch live art progress and hang out with other Artists from the local area who wouldn’t normally at the same sorts of events. There were talks about growing the event and the next one falling some time in June so look out for that! Special thanks for Olly for inviting me along. It was great to meet Lewes Herriot who designs great posters for This Is TMRW - a lot of my gig sketches are from their events. You can find more beautiful fantasy/adventure illustrations on his website. 

My next booked event isn't until May - I'm hoping to book a couple more events in the summer so check the blog sidebar for an up to date list. Don't forget I have an Etsy shop which ships worldwide. Thanks!

Birmingham MCM Comic Con March 2017






Thank you to everyone who came by my table at Birmingham MCM Comic Con over the weekend. It was a relatively quiet show but still really lovely to catch up with convention friends after a longer winter break. I had fun doing convention commissions for the first time in years, it went ok so I'm considering offering them at future shows.

The next event I’m going to be at is The Midland Lo-Operatives this Sunday afternoon at The Hare & Hounds. It’s at a venue I often end up gig sketching at, so will be nice to be take the music zines there for an Alternative Art Market. Thanks, see you there!

Chapter 5 Coming Soon!


Giant Rhinos In Space Chapter 5 - Coming Soon

Hi! Sorry for taking such a long break between chapters. 2016 ended up being a busy year for anthologies and music zines. It looks like I’ve finally found an opportunity to get this project back out. I’m super excited to start drawing these aliens again! I’m not going to make any promises on exact launch dates just yet, just in case other work comes up - but I’m currently aiming for late spring.

Chapter 5 is going to be the last in the story, so to make the release extra special I’m compiling a gallery of illustrations to go in the back pages of the printed comic. If you’d like to draw the characters and see them in print, now’s your chance!
