About me

Gender MALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Illustrator, comic book artist, writer and obsessive compulsive
Location Stoke Marshlands, United Kingdom
Introduction Worked on and off in the comics industry for over twenty years; writing and drawing for some of the BIG guys(DC and Dark Horse), and some of the microscopic(Caliber - no, i didn't make a penny either). Hate and love the biz with a passion. Occasionally stray over to music and film, but that can be just as frustrating. Still, helps keep me off the streets and selling dope to schoolkids...
