It’s a long shot, I know, but I’m dipping my toes in the water to see if I have any followers who are in Newcastle or there abouts? If I can drum up enough interest, I’m going to try and start a regular sketch group. This is a local thing, I want to socialise with people a bit more, I still don’t know many people here and it’d be nice to change that. If you’re in my neck of the woods and are interested, drop me a comment, note, email, whatever! (

I don't bite, honest!


Hello my lovelies! It's been a hell of a while. My last journal update was back in July and a lot's changed since then, so I'm due an update right? I'll try and keep it short and sweet.

Most notably, back in September I moved up to Newcastle upon tyne to start working with the lovely guys at Atomhawk. It was a crazy couple of weeks, relocating super fast, moving away from my loved ones and settling into art 9 to 5, but... I love it! My time there has flown already and it's awesome, I get to paint all day ;D
I can't wait to start sharing all the stuff I've been working on and I will as soon as I can.

In other news! If you pick up the latest ImagineFX issue, you'll find my art on the cover! It was seriously awesome to be asked to paint a cover ;)

There's a tutorial from me and if you ever wanted to see my work at 100% resolution, pick up the issue!

Lastly! It's almost five years on Deviant art for me now, where the hell did that go!? So thanks for the early 'birthday' messages.

I'll try and keep up a slow trickle of art ;p

Congrats on IFX. I used to buy it religiously but it's gotten quite thin recently and I think the amount that I learn from each issue, if anything, is not enough to warrant the price. If I was made of money I'd buy it every month though XD
I've been looking for a sketch group for a while and I live just down the road from Newcastle. It's about an hour on the train, but cheap enough. The sketch group thing happening?
I don't get online much these days. I use facebook on my phone and that usually get's me by. Drop me a message if you want adding over there if the sketch group thing is taking off :)
