Macclesfield, France, London

Whilst graphic designing and sign-making for Whole Foods Market, I am still working on my comics for Aces Weekly, visiting comic cons and sketching!

I stayed with a french family in France and took my sketchbook with me. Here are a few of the sketches from my book:

I also recently had a table at Macclesfield comic con where I promoted my comics in Aces Weekly. You can read my comics among many others from the greats at: http://acesweekly.co.uk/

 

‘Last Thursday’ – New Comic – Coming Soon to Aces Weekly

Scouring the internet during the obligitory brain downtime, I came across the fake religion – Last Thursdayism. So inspired was I by people who create a fake religions in their spare time, that I felt compelled to write a story. And here we are, my new comic ‘Last Thursday’ is coming soon (September 7th) to Aces Weekly.

Last Thursdayism isn’t a fake religion, it’s real. And you’d better believe it.

Runner-up of the Young Cartoonist of the Year Award

Hello dear readers, you’ll be pleased to know that I’m a runner-up in ‘The Young Cartoonist of the Year Award’ under 30’s category. There will be an exhibition soon at the Cartoon Museum in Holborn, London which I’ll be in. In my secret life, I have folders full of humorous cartoons on scraps of paper that I do for my own amusement (or procrastination). This cartoon was adapted from one of those. Go to www.cartoonmuseum.org to check out the winners!

We had an exciting time last week as my partner Corban won the Observer/Comica/ Cape Prize, we’re both comics/cartooning enthusiasts.

I’m currently writing out my graphic novel. You see, I’ve already drawn the whole thing out three times, but it’s still not right and I’m a perfectionist. It’s definitely clearing my mind to write freely because I tend to write things that I would avoid drawing.
