An illustrated insight into the world of the artist, cartoonist and prolific tweeter
As an artist people sometimes ask me what my work is like (particularly if they haven't seen it…). It's a question that I hate because I do a lot of different things. This book is an attempt to gather together a whole bunch of stuff that I do – drawings, cartoons, short stories, jokes, spells, instructions and miscellaneous other nonsense –– and to analyse this - “the evidence” - with some very rigorous spurious science (eg pie charts) and self-examination (not medical, hopefully) to try and work out exactly what it is that I do. With luck I'll be able to finally answer the question I hate being asked.
NB: Although occasionally childish, this book is not suitable for children.

Be honest, you’ve probably forgotten that you pledged for my book once upon a time - possibly while we were still part of the European Union - so this blog post will come as a lovely reminder of something to look forward to. Yesterday was a distracting day, politically, for those of us in the UK, but for me it was rather momentous - we finally finished the final FINAL definitely final (final version…
The Last Post
Tuesday, 2 August 2016
Ok, that last blog post was specially for those of you who don't read these blogs posts. Quite a few people (mentioning no names but you know who you are) have been saying they're looking forward to giving the book as a birthday or Christmas present THIS YEAR. But the book will not be out until some time NEXT year.
This is not a book that's already written and waiting to be published. I still…
Just so you're all absolutely clear about this…

… the book won't be out until 'some time' next year.
Look, it's not about me. It's about Ian Martin.

Just a very quick one: a bit of cross-promotion. I have done a drawing for the brilliant Ian Martin's "Epic Space" book, another Unbound volume, currently funded but you can STILL PLEDGE and receive limited edition slightly-bigger-than-A3 print based on his wonderful list of skyscraper nicknames. I drew it freehand, starting in the bottom left hand corner, occasionally consulting a photo of the London…
This Post Contains A Great Joke

I know that you're all pacing up and down impatiently by your various devices waiting for a progress update on my book, unable to concentrate on your every day lives.
Please stop fretting, I beg of you. All is in hand and it's busy busy busy behind the scenes.
I'm delighted to say that I'm working with a brilliant book designer called Darren Wall (I'll post a link to his work at the bottom so…
Where am I? Where am I going?

Last week I finally started working on my book in the foreground, rather than in the background. It's the first time I've allowed myself to think “Yes, it's really happening!” and now I have an obligation to get on with it, which suits me very well.
What's great about hitting and then exceeding the funding target is that now I'm starting to be paid for the time I spend on the book. I don't have…
