Here’s a comic I drew for ‘Dawn of the Unread’, an interactive Graphic Novel about combating library closures and illiteracy with help from beyond the grave!  I was paired up with author, Alan Gibbons and we came up with this 8-page comic, called ‘Books and Bowstrings’, which can be viewed in full, for free – here!


A printed version will appear later in the year n’all.

One side is Rum Lad, flip it over, and then the other side is Gadgie. BAM!


Rum Lad #6 is my illustrated comic-zine.  In this issue I talk about growing up in, and then leaving Boston, Lincs. I cover things ranging from exploring the town itself, discovering an amazing punk scene on my doorstep and learning to define what ‘home’ means. First issue in 3 years!

Gadgie #31 is a long running, legendary punk zine by Marv Gadgie. If you’re familiar with his work, you know to expect hilarious observations and anecdotes that revolve around small town life, childhood adventures, having a family and beyond. This issue features interviews with ‘Hard Lines’ Productions (Makers of the great ‘Punk football’ documentary’), tales from the pit and some reviews.

– £3.00
– A5 sized, Card covers.
