Hello there. Since my last post, a lot has happened to distract me from the drawing board, but work continues on APHELION with writer Troy Martin with a July 2023 relesae date for issue 1. I’ll go more into all of that in the future, but here’s the teaser postcard we gave away at Thoughtbubble 2022.
Well. It’s been a while.
Have updated various pages with most recent published work. Busy working still on Topps Cards properties and on a new series, APHELION, with writer Troy Martin.

Myself and editor Gareth Kavanagh have been interviewed recently for podcasts also:
Happy to reveal my covers for the LYTTON series, which are the main covers for the series, but there are also a number of excellent variant covers by guest artists to come. The brief was something echoing poster designs of the 70’s with a Bond type focus on the titular character.
