Bio: I studied Art and Design at Canterbury Technical College and at Canterbury KIAD. I've worked as an animator and freelance illustrator, but my dream was always to work in comics. In May 2003, I made the transition from dreamer to professional when APComics published my creator-owned title, Darkham Vale. A hopeless control freak, I wrote, pencilled, inked, coloured and lettered Darkham Vale.
Unfortunately, I hadn't realised that I was signing away the rights to Darkham Vale in its entirety, not just series by series as I believed. As soon as I joined APC, Darkham Vale ceased to be creator-owned, so I basically slaved at that comic for virtually nothing.
But, y'know, ya live an' learn, don't ya? I love this industry, and I won't let this nasty experience put me off. Mike Bullock and I enjoyed success with our creator-owned project, Lions, Tigers and Bears, published by Image.
I'm now the artist on the UK exclusive comic, A.T.O.M. and I have a few projects of my own that I'm working on too!
