I started this journal and website over a year ago, as a way to keep an art journal and have all my projects in one place. Over the last 18 months or so I have collaborated with two indie authors and illustrated three books to date: The Chronicles of Engella Rhys by Paul Ian Cross and Stella the Zombie Killer vol. 1 and 2 by Alistair Wilkinson. I have just finished working on the 3rd installment of Stella ( I guess it will be out soon!) and I’m working on two more childrens books with Paul, one, a picture book and the other for middle grade readers.
Because I am self-taught (and clearly don’t have enough to do!) I am constantly looking for interesting ways to practice techniques and to learn something new, so I have recently started a personal project – Funeral Pyrate. This original character is an Other Worldly creature who will take me on a journey of creative discovery in airships, sea ships, bicycles, and bus stops. Maybe the pub. Its been a while.
I am in the process of making some of my work available to buy.
