Paperjammeners assemble

So, the Paper Jam Comics Collective is nearly nine years old and is releasing it's twelfth anthology Happy ...And That at The Paperjammening - a micro comic con happening in Travelling Man Newcastle's basement tomorrow, with loads of excellent comics for sale from Paper Jam members plus there'll be doodling and jam comics and good times.

I've got a story in the new anthology about beer, plus I'll be attempting to flog my range of very small comics at the event, but don't let that put you off.




Well, it's getting a bit autumnal, the nights are starting to draw in, and it's Halloween soon. What better way to contemplate this spooky time of year than with an exhibition of works addressing the idea of monsters?

North Shields' finest arts hub, Creative Up North will be running just such an exhibition, curated by creative polymath and all-round megadude Paul Thompson, from 28th October through to 8th November...

I'm delighted to be part of it, and will be exhibiting some slightly silly collages (around the theme of chimeras, naturally). Here's a sneak peek...

Whoa! See more of this handsome fellow at the exhibition.

Plus! There'll be a fabulous catalogue book of the exhibition for sale, and there's an opening preview event on the evening of the 27th (and possibly other stuff happening as the exhibition goes on). See the facebook blah for more details.


Radio On Out

Check this!

It's the cover of the second issue of the excellent, music-themed anthology Radio On. And it's released this weekend (at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival)! And I did a little story (about the medicinal benefits of rock music) for it!


All the contributors were also asked to recommend some albums. In the spirit of my story, I recommended this fine rock music:

Baroness - Blue Record

Graveyard - Lights Out

Greenleaf - Trails and Passes

Red Fang - Red Fang

I heartily recommend you check out Radio On, it's full of quality comics. I also heartily recommend you listen to rock music.



Tales of Extraordinariness #5: Muffins is now out. It features a demonic minion of the infernal pit and an actual recipe for blueberry muffins, though it is possibly actually about comics.

As usual: available from me directly or maybe (maybe) from the Travelling Man Newcastle small press section (at some point) (maybe).
