BIO

I am the regular comic artist for the New Statesman and a frequent contributor to comic journalism website Cartoon Movement. I also edit and publish the critically acclaimed UK comics anthology Solipsistic Pop which I founded in 2009.

My comics have appeared in the Eisner nominated Nelson (Blank Slate Books), the Thought Bubble Anthology 2013 (Image Comics), Paper Science (We Are Words + Pictures), and The Independent.

I won an Eagle award in 2008 for my first long-form comic - How To Date A Girl In Ten Days, and have self-published a variety of other comics including Art School Scum, the 24 hour comic Everything You Never Wanted To Know About Crohns Disease, and the illustrated reportage book My Fellow Americans (co-created with journalist Dan Hancox).

I also work as a professional illustrator, storyboard artist and designer.

I'm currently working on Ellipsis - a comic composed of six short, interweaving stories. The first issue is available to buy here. For regular updates, follow my blog blog, or join the mailing list.
