"You should concrete over. Makes life so much easier"

I was recently delighted to have those lovely fellows at Private Eye publish the following cartoon, which involves several subjects close to my heart: the sad modern phenomenon of front gardens being turned into car parks, less-is-more gardening, and lying in hammocks... 

Those who know me personally might even fancy they recognise a character or two in the drawing...
As always, get in touch of you'd like a print.

When Eileen came on

Forgotten Moments in Music History, which appears every fortnight in Private Eye, is usually written by musical witmeister Rik Edwards, but this was one of my own ideas...

minimalist blog round-up

A bunch of stuff I've done/contributed to/been included in recently/not that recently but haven't mentioned on here before due to overwork/blogging fatigue. The Monster Sale is a book of poems I illustrated on the inside (not the cover), the greeting card is part of a new range of Forgotten Moments In Music History cards launched earlier this year. 

As you can probably tell, my blogging fatigue is ongoing...

Annuals plug!

Don't forget your annuals this Christmas folks! I drew (but not wrote) some Billy Whizz in the Beano book, but the stuff I'm proudest of is in the Dandy book, six pages of Winker Watson and a 10-page Jack Silver extravaganza wot I wrote and drew.

Useleus on cover of this week's Phoenix

Our ancient Greek idiot makes the cover of the Phoenix this week. There's a 4-page story inside, plus loads more great comics by, y'know, other people.

New Useleus in The Phoenix

Yup, it's Useleus time again in the super-smashing story comic The Phoenix.
In this one, the Argonauts come to the island, and our um, hero meets that well-known bebop combo The Sirens.
Penned, as usual, by the mighty Alexander Matthews. Find a copy in Waitrose, comics shops, or get the app.

More Jack Silver

It's been a crazily hectic start to the year for me, I've been too busy to blog, but things are calming down a bit, so it's time to tell you a bit about what I've been up to.

For starters, remember I did a one-page Jack Silver strip for the final print issue of the Dandy?
Well, following on from that I was asked to do an 8 page Jack Silver story for the Dandy annual 2014 to go with the three Winker Watson two-pagers I've already done for it.

It's a bit of a mad story, full of wacky Marsuvian gizmos, high drama, and Lesser-Spotted Floogly Flaaatstipplers. I had a ball.

Oh, there's also a related extra double-page spread.

Here's a pic. The book should be out in August. It'll fly by.
