Breaking into Comics

Well September has been a really exciting month for me.

Since I was 5 years old I have always wanted to draw comics for a living and I've been drawing my own comics as a hobby all my life. It's somewhat of an addiction for me, something I need to do!

Over the past 7 years I've seriously focused on trying to "Break into Comics" a term that has adorned the title of many a "How to" book I've read in my time. Despite being told time and again that it can't be done, I can now say to those people IT CAN!

Along with the soon to be released Tough Guy graphic novel from Mohawk Media, I'll soon be starting on a new strip for next years Beano book. And this month I have had a short series of comic strips commissioned by one of the UK's comic institutions. What makes it even more exciting is that the strips star is a character I have created myself and will appear in a soon to be relaunched version of the title with a whole host of new stars who will appear alongside some well established old friends.

What is this comic I hear you ask...

Well I'll tell you a bit nearer the time, chortle!

Will post some new art very soon.

Good Times!
