It also has great ceiling lights (see photo above!)

Depressed Cat Mini Site Book launch week!


All of this week I will be posting the amazing DC fan artwork I have been sent in on a mini site as a launch week for the new book. Above Depressed Cat by John McCrea and below by Paul Shinn, just two of the awesome drawings I had sent to me. Tune into the mini site all week for artwork by Hunt Emerson, The Brothers McLeod, Gemma Correll, Timothy Winchester, Jim Medway and many more!

Don't forget- Depressed Cat will no doubt be moaning about all the fuss on twitter! Sigh.

(You can also follow on tumblr if you prefer)

New Stockists!

I have three exciting new stockists this month!

Comma in Oxford!

Almost Antique in Birmingham!

Quimby's in America!

Desk of DREAMS!

It's a bit of a miserable November afternoon so I thought I'd share a photo of my workspace. A while ago I drew this for this interview:
....but now that dream has come true! This is my current desk area. It was looking unusually tidy so I thought it would be a good time to share with annotations:

It's bigger if you click on it! What is missing from that photo is tea so I'm going to go and make some now. Also my lightbox/scanner/paper trimmer/paper which I keep safely on the floor.

Tomorrow I hope to see you at the Sol Pop launch night! And then on Saturday I will be at Comica and I've also sent a bunch of comics along to the South East London Zine Fest.

This weekend I will be exhibiting at MCM Comic Village! I'm *hoping* new badges arrive in time but I'm not sure if they will or not. If not I will still have my usual stock- which all make great xmas presents for your friends and family so come and buy everything so I don't have to carry things home!

If I do have new badges they will look like this:

I will also be selling a few limited copies of my German book for anyone who likes to read comics in German instead of English!

Since the start of September you may have noticed a lack of online comics on my website again. This is because I've been busy working on various projects that are taking up most of my time. I'll be announcing more exciting news soon but for now- here are the main things I've been drawing the past few weeks :
Depressed Cat THE BOOK! If I get it finished in time I hope to release the book at Thought Bubble, put possibly earlier if it is back from the printers before then. It will be a textured cover A6 size comic book with a spine (A SPINE!) collecting all the DC strips and lots of new ones too! I'm also collecting fan art so if you want to send in a drawing of DC please do. The fan art will all go on the website and here on the blog when the book is launched. Don't forget to follow DC's tweets!

I have also been working on Solipsistic Pop 4 (For this I have written a three page story about mind mapping for issue theme of maps) and Ink and Paper! (In this I have a two page story about a fortune teller) Sneak peeks of both below! Don't forget you can still fund/pre-order sol pop here.

I think I will probably be delaying the release of At The Lighthouse until next March so that there is a new "At The..." comic every year (unless I suddenly get a lot done in the next few weeks in which case it could be out soon)

Anyway, here is a comic as a special prize for this week. And tomorrow is Grizzly Bear Thursday!

Why not try using this diagram to identify this beaut below- photo taken at the Natural History Museum in New York by Felt Mistress! :oD

I also drew the gift adopted Aye Aye- Pippin for issue 5!

There are some really great stories this issue- Enjoy!

Starting this Friday my work is part of a pop up exhibition on Brighton seafront at the Brighton Fishing Museum. Curated by Upstream Creative Ltd.

All being well I should be at the opening on Friday so if you live in Brighton come along!

Today is the start of my ONE A DAY comics for August. You are all invited to join the party! Go read here!

When checking the spelling of the word awkward (because I can't spell even basic words) I came across this beaut of a site.

I suggest listening to the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack while checking these links out.

MCM Manchester

This Saturday I will be in Manchester for the very first MCM MANCHESTER.

Man-oh-Manchester, mANCHORchester, Man-che-STAR are some nicknames I came up with for the city. You can thank me later if you choose to use them yourself.

I will also be at the MCC Drink And Draw on Sunday no doubt!


Today I went to paint a couple of Leopards in Leotards and Dullbog the Bulldog in the derelict Whitmarley factory in Stirchley, Birmingham. "A genuinely guerilla experience, Preclusion is a totally unsupported spontaneous art exhibition"

There will be an opening tomorrow with dancing and live art and drinks etc at 18.30 so go along if you are around! check out the website here for more details. If you can't make it here are some photos of the painting in progress and me hanging out with the final characters.

Where is the love?

Wondering why I've not put any comics online lately? (since March! March!! ugh March)


I've been really busy with a bunch of stuff but also I'm planning to draw a comic a day in August so I figured anyone who is interested in reading comics for free can wait until then....

If you prefer to pay for laughs who not take a look in my online shop! Patches are now for sale! Bison zine now comes with a pink cover (I sold out of red- same story inside) AND until August I'll be sending a free original drawing with every order! it could be a bison or a moose or a mousse or a grain of salt or whatever I think of at the requests, this will be drawn at random!
