"...'Allo me old china..."

I've been piddling about with illustrated phrases again...here's an idea based on a certain Clash album title.  I'm wondering if this needs a speech bubble...hence the post title. Hmmm...need to think of summat cockney.

Graphic Medicine

Just a quick note to say my comic is mentioned on Graphic Medicine,  a website about comics relating to medicine and health.  Follow the link below if intrigued - Graphic Medicine is a pretty interesting website.

Audio Generations

Because new audio formats are very caring and always look after their ancestors.  I hope.

Bigger project

I mentioned I was working on a bigger project a few months ago.  This eventually became a 28 page comic about a family copying with dementia.  Here's some images from the comic, which I'm both pleased with and proud of.  If anyone is interested in seeing the full length comic, please do get in touch.

A bit of news...

Just to let any of my, er, regular viewers know, I may soon be changing website...I'll pop on the new web address when this happens. Thanks for your views, whomever you may be!

Quick 'toon

Just a quickie...hope this doesn't offend anyone...it's just meant to be silly!

Isle of Man-Update...

Apparently, the Isle of Man's cultural cognoscenti decided to spruce the island's image up a bit, so they hired some London hipster types to update its flag.  This is the result.

If this baffles you, google the current flag!

Camberwell exhibition

As some of you will know, I've been doing a course in illustration over the past year.  The final exhibition is coming up - here are the details. COME!  Lots of stuff to see.

Quick cartoon

 A quick cartoon I knocked out this arvo...thought I'd pop it on here in all its sketchy glory.

A character I found myself doodling t'other day.  I see him as a jaded junglist.

I haven't added much lately - this is because I'm working on a longer project rather than small one-offs.  Here's a bit of a taster of what I've been up to.

Late Knight Post

Another of my Knight series...not sure how many people will get jokes about 70s telly these days, but what the heck!

More knights...

...and another with different text. If any one has any prefs re the font, let me know!

Knighty Knight

I've been putting together some pun-based cartoons based on knights.  Here's one of 'em.  Not sure if I've got layout/colours right...feedback may be helpful (and before you correct me, I know it was originally 'Nights in white...'!).

The Friend in the Fridge

I've been working on illustrations for a children's book a friend of mine has written...not coloured as yet, but these are two of the pages I am most pleased with.

Welcome to Commuter Hell

Something a bit different.  Watch out all you commuters!

Potential business card...

Trying to knock up a few business cards...here's my idea for a storyboarding card, with a cheeky ref to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Really pleased with this...might try and do a little series of similar ones.

Playing around...

Messing about with scanning textures and combining with my drawings...pretty pleased with the results thus far.

Good Afternoon, Mr Nolte...

Bit of a change of tack...here's a drawing I did of Nick Nolte t'other night, thought I'd pop it on here.

A quick toon...

...that emerged from a doodle from a couple of days ago.

'Words of Wisdom...'

Thought it might be fun to make some cartoons taking a sideways look at English sayings...here's my first finished one. I first did this with blue speech bubbles, but a friend pointed out it made the text hard to read. Hopefully yellow is a bit better!

Free Rangers: Screen printed version

Had a go at screen printing last week...this is the result I got using two colours on this 'classic' toon. I think it looks rather nice - kind of like and old comic strip!

The Frog Prince

A contemporary take on fairy tale subject matter, innit.


Tuesday, 10 January 2012


This is a piece of work that grew out of an assignment to illustrate words representing abstract concepts, one of which was 'imprisonment'. What form of imprisonment could be worse than that of an intellectual brain trapped in the head of a philistine? Eh? Eh? Exactly.

Free Rangers...coloured version

Been playing around with photoshop colouring an old 'Free Rangers' strip...this is what I came up with (keeping it minimal!).

phables of phobic phil - final

I posted an early B/W version of this in December. I got a bit sick of using photoshop and thought I'd have a crack at colouring this with watercolour paint. I'm fairly happy with the results, luddite that I am! Sharp-eyed viewers may also noticed I've changed the last panel a bit too...it was a bit too busy/messy.
