I have a day job, and my style of drawing is time-consuming. These two facts mean that I have to be very choosy about what work I take on commission, and that long deadlines are often necessary. 

But it also means that, if I take on your project, you can be sure I’m completely committed to it.

I want to make a difference with comics

You can get a good idea of the kind of work I enjoy by looking through this site, and my blog. For your convenience, though, here’s a list of topics I’d be most likely to jump at working on:

  • Travel or documentary pieces
  • Slice of life, oral histories
  • Work that furthers social causes
  • Work that helps the climate
  • Protest
  • Fashion
  • Pop culture
  • I’m also really interested in street art

I draw comics, write excellent prose, and am happy to illustrate the words of others.

Subjects I have some expertise in include: Freedom of Information, civic technology, democracy, activism, the climate emergency, British life, being middle aged, being the parent of a teen, the Eighties, Brighton, cats, veggie food, the comics community…

… but I am also a fast learner and if a topic is interesting, I will dig right in until I know everything about it.

I often draw from my own experience

It’s my belief that universal truth is found in the most personal experiences. My best way into a story is by experiencing it myself, or considering where it has touched my life.

You probably ought to know that I:

  • dislike car culture
  • don’t eat meat
  • eschew brands that do harm to society or the environment

If you’ve got a project in mind and you think my work would suit it, do get in touch.

Recent commissions

The Nib

I contributed a two-page strip about guerilla gardening through the ages to the ‘Nature’ issue of the Nib, American political and social comic.


I explored my own teen subculture in the light of my daughter’s own passion for Japanese cosplay in an illustrated essay for Longreads.

Naked Bike Ride

I made the poster for the 2019 Brighton Naked Bike Ride, which was run in collaboration with Extinction Rebellion.

Comic-making doesn’t bring fame and fortune — but it can bring opportunities for travel and fellowship, ample rewards in themselves. Read more.


As an ex-goth who can’t quite give up a fascination with clothes, I love drawing all aspects of fashion – and, along the way, recording some aspects of our shared social history. Read more.


I am interested in how comics can encourage activism and make real political change. While political cartoons are a familiar feature in our newspapers, I do not believe that research has ever been conducted into what tangible effects they have in the real world. Read more.
