I've just finished putting together my entry for the Observer/Jonathan Cape Graphic Short Story Prize. It is designed to run across four pages in the Observer magazine.
The story is about a Barber, Abe, but it is really about missing someone, moments out of time, and remembering.

This is an 'episode' from the case I'm working on at the moment, it is based on real events and concerns a young woman whose body was found on Long Beach. This 'episode' takes place five days before she is discovered. It's also my entry for the Cheltenham illustration awards.


And this is a poster I did for my pal Louise's night at the Crow Rooms...
Dancing is the main thing.

I made this poster for the M a g i c U n c l e night my friends put on in St. Ives. We managed to raise a whopping five hudred quid for Cancer Reserach. Whoop whoop.
