I can see for miles….
Rough art for SOLID GOLD DEATH MASK which is slowly taking shape again…
This year has been full of car crashes, family tragedies and odd life events… but through it all, my close friends and family have stood together, helped each other, and shown me how lucky I am.
I’m happy that we’ll have stuff to show in the new year… and some new games afoot too!
Back to Scribbling!!!

Just to prove I’m managing to get a little work done here in NZ, while visiting My Dad (who’s unfortunately ill)… some more thumbnails for SOLID GOLD DEATH MASK.
Had a lot to do in between hospital visits and stuff, so work has been sporadic, and it’s been tough to stay focussed.
We’ve been really lucky though… our family have all rallied together, and be so supportive. <3
It’s also given me the opportunity to find all my art from the fanzines and punk posters I did when I was a kid… so when I get home, I’m going to scan them and try and put a book together with my old Zine mates as a collection.
I’ve managed to get out to Auckland art gallery, and loved the inflatable ceiling flowers, the zoo, where I walked around looking like a member of Al Queda, as I hid from the sun… and drinks with my buddies Dylan Horrocks, Chris Slane, Ben Stenbeck, Ant Sang, and Lars Cawley! It was so great to see all these talented lovely guys again. I’m fucking lucky to have such great friends.
Thanks to all my friends back home in London too, especially Sofie and Lucy who are babysitting Ripley, my cat! <3
I’d best get scribbling!
Love, tanks and coffee!
Got any back issues Fanboy?
A sketch for the guys at Gotham Comics in Auckland, New Zealand, where I’m visiting right now.
Hope all is groovy with everyone back home.

IAN CURTIS LIVES….
When I lived in Wellington… Just outside the Polytech was inscribed IAN CURTIS LIVES… so when I cam e to illustrate this for TANK GIRL - THE GIFTING, I thought I’d pay a little homage to my favourite graffito…
This piece was coloured by Ashley Wood, who I did the series with!
♥ Thanks Wellington xxxxx
