My So-Called Secret Identity Pin-up #2

Here's my other pin-up image featuring Will Brooker's character 'Kyla' from his 'My So-Called Secret Identity' comic project.

The other one, 'Kat' can be seen here :)

I first drew Kyla with her boobs out (as you do) but Will mentioned that he wanted her more covered up, here's the backwards progression of her costume :D

Hello Dolly!

So me and my friend Hannah Nicklin went to see 'Hello Dolly!' at the Curve theatre.
It inspired me to make this VERY ACCURATE comic about it.

Culture Vulture!

Hi guys!

So the bi-monthly 'Culture Magazine' here in Leicester asked me to do a comic strip for them.

The issue with this strip in it was released today! I had a lot of fun with this one and I'm looking forward to playing around with the characters in the coming months.

Book cover: 'Head on the Block'

Hey dudes,
I did a book cover a while back for Troubador Publishing for a book called 'Head on the Block' which is about the trials and tribulations of being a headmaster.

I think my favourite bit was drawing the cheeky teenagers on the back :)
