So, I've been a bit quiet on the blog for a few months, the reason being is that I've had my head down making a graphic novel and it's been a total emotional roller coaster this one. Bar a few bits of design I've actually finished it, phew and hurrah! The project started way back in 2007 when I had a moment with God in Leicester Square, I silently cried out to him and heard him respond, rather unconventionally, through the lyrics of an INXS song. I was inspired to seek an adventure with Him and in that moment I also imagined in my hands the finished book. I was truly excited about the possibilities and challenges of drawing my relationship with God. It's been a bit of a journey as they say and my confidence has wavered greatly whilst doing this project - I've started over from scratch a couple of times. With great thanks to the friends around me and also some amazingly kind people who offered support and mentoring, the job is done. Hopefully you'll enjoy the book and find it funny too. The release date isn't til Autumn 2012! Gdoing! I will let you know more about it nearer the publishing date. Until then I'll post more regularly on here.
Rob Davis and Woodrow Phoenix have come up with a brilliant idea for a collaborative graphic novel that is featuring 50 UK comic artists to tell one story about Nel Baker from her birth to the present day. I was keen to take part and am representing Nel in 1984. Here is some more info about the project, it will be out this November!
This was commissioned by The Guardian, they wanted a visual story in response to the theme of oil. I worked with the editor to come up with this piece with the gloomy and frightening concept of oil subjugating our lives. Here is full piece for The Guardian.
