My new zine is available for pre-order now!
This is the first issue of SMOO in eighteen months. The zine tells the story of a year, from September to September. A weird year; bird-watching on Theodore Roosevelt Island, contemplating; sadness; drinking; summer and new starts; Brooklyn underpasses. Drawn quickly, but with heart, in a week, here in Bristol. I’m really proud of this one.
These should be posted in late Feb.

The new issue of my autobiographical comic, SMOO, is available for pre-order now! SMOO #7 is about the countryside I grew up in. Split over three zines, a map, and a letter, it deals with memories, trying to live in the now, and what happens when you revisit your home, many years later.

In fact, we think that sometimes things can be said better when they’re drawn; hopefully, these comics might help some people…Continue

A few of us comic and zine making types have been meeting up recently to talk, share ideas and general plot world take over by the DIY press here in Bristol. We've also started a collaborative comic-zine, called Bearpit. The first issue was released earlier this year, and the second is under-way, slated for a summer release. You can read all about it here.
Most importantly, though, we're an open forum, so if…Continue
