Eyeball man

Spotted & drawn in pub in South London pub. I don't know if Eyeball is a band, but if it isn't, it bally well should be! Who wants to join?

Rock star hair

Drawing somewhat inspired by Dave Hill of Slade's '70s haircut, A stunning (if rather unwise) barnet that of of late I've become become rather obsessed with for reasons beyond my understanding. There's a certain rather brilliant home-made quality to '70s British glam rockers which makes it all the more endearing...

Happy St George's Day!

(I have contributed to suitable dragon-cruelty charities & will politely draw a veil over the fact that Saint George never actually set foot in England...shhhhhhh!)

Great launch party last week for the interactive Superheroes exhibition that I just finished working on with the lovely folk at the Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford so here's a few photographs of the exhibition (& a couple of me looking silly too!)
Big thanks everybody at Discover for being delightful to work with & for all their brilliant work in making the exhibition work so well

Welcome to Alphabet City!

Animated intro for the interactive Superheroes Exhibition at the Discover Children's Story Centre featuring square jaws, a surfeit of cape-ery & a glimpse of a Super-Villain to boot! See it here

Hair gunk...

Love a bit of pomade me! (This is a tiny segment from a new book I've been drawing - but so tiny it won't make any difference if I show you but shhhhhhh!)

I used to have a hairdresser who suddenly overnight became allergic to all such 'product' (as they term it in the coiffeuring trade) very distressing all round - it'd be like me becoming allergic to pencils or something...

Meet the Superheroes!

These are the finished comic strips that go with the children's Superheroes exhibition that I've just finished working on. They introduce the superheroes A,E,I,O & U in their battle against the evil vowel snatching villain Y. (all superheroes need a good origin story!)
The exhibition (which makes me wish I was 6 years old again!) is at the Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford & is open until the 4th November - more details here

Topiary haircut

I always ask for the 'bird' at the hairdressers


I visited the Superheroes exhibition this morning - it's all looking really great, the folks at the Discover Children's Story Centre have done an amazing job, photos to follow. Today I got to wear a cape, sit in a Super Car & got given badges & comics too - yay!

Superheroes comic strips

Here's a selection of the comic strips I produced for the Superheroes exhibition at the Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford, East London showing the origins of the main characters. The superheroes A, E, I, O & U are battling the dastardly villain Y who is stealing all the vowels from Alphabet City!

I was commissioned to design the superhero & super villain characters & the the urban environment the exhibition is set in (including lots of fun with signs & animals! : )I also produced some animated clips for the interactive parts of the exhibition

The exhibition opened on Sunday 1st April & will run until 4th November - I haven't had a chance to see the finished piece yet, looking forward to it loads.
