Ever since I was little, I looooved Mike Golden's art.
I was obsessed with Marvel’s ‘The Nam’, and when Mike was last in London I arranged a commission, but he was really busy. I received it today… and I am so blown away.
This is A4!!! It’s as good as any of the covers he did, and I really will keep this forever.
It’s going up above my desk.
I have a LOT to learn.
Thank you to Renee Witterstaetter and James O’Barr…. and of course, Mike Golden. Meeting your heroes is so great.
I am so bloody lucky….
I’m always really honoured when people get my work tattooed on them. I have tattoos myself of some of my favourite comics, and I know what a commitment it is.
I’ve met some awesome people with my art on them, and I’m very grateful for their support.
I am a guest at the BIRMINGHAM International Comics Expo - SATURDAY 2nd August at The Studio, Canon Street, 10 am - 17:30 pm.
I’m giving an Art Master class between 15:00 - 16:30 pm in the Master Class room. I’ll be talking about turning a script into finished art, and my art process.
Hopefully see some of you there!
I’d recommend the 633 Squadron patch! <3
Happy Bombing!!!!! Kaboooooooom!
I’m Batman….who the fuck are you?? in colour!
I digitally coloured the toned B&W art commission… and was pleasantly surprised.
I might do this as a Print for some Convention appearances this year.
And now….back to work…
I’m Batman. With apologies to Frank Miller. A Tank Girl commission piece.
Nice way to spend your Sunday… luke warm coffee, war films, and drawing Batman…. decapitated…
Poster art for the Herceg Novi Comics festival I’ll be at in September!
( no logo on it yet… details to follow shortly…)
I’ll be a guest at ICE ( International Comics Expo ) in Birmingham on Saturday 2nd August! I’ll be giving an hour and a half class on what I’ll loosely call my ‘art process’, and have lots of my original art there for people to look through!
Come along and support this great independent Expo!

A Judge Dredd pin up, hopefully for 2000ad's sketch book thing… It’s from ‘City of the Damned’, one of my favourite stories when I was a kid…drawn originally drawn by Steve Dillon!
If I haven’t missed the deadline by a million years…who knows… Only Tharg knows…
BE N!CE was absolutely awesome!!!
