I created this Valentine’s Day image today, from a photo I took recently.

And if you are feeling unloved, take this to be your Valentine’s Day [...]

Some time ago artist Alison Sampson asked me to be part of her and Ian MacEwan’s on-going project: Think of a City: a mass storytelling project ‘to experience this city of the imagination, told page by page, by storytellers from around the world.’

Nearly two years ago my friend James Bacon phoned me up and asked me if I’d be on for designing the comic book programme at Worldcon in London (known as Loncon 3) in August 2014. I agreed readily enough as I was keen to raise the profile of comic books at the event. Comics are [...]

Mon, 30 May 2011 going up north
This weekend I’m heading up north to Derry’s 2-D Comic Book Festival. It’s my first time attending, but I’ve heard really positive things about the event, so I’m looking forward it to (but not the 5 1/2 hour bus journey!).

The Guests [...]
Thu, 26 May 2011 in the spotlight
The image on the right happened the night after I returned to my hotel room after the ZeBBie Awards in Dublin.
