I’m a freelance creator, based in South Wales, in the United Kingdom. I’m happily married, with three cats and an annoying mortgage.
I studied at the Glamorgan Centre For Art & Design for three years, attaining a BTEC Diploma in Art & Design, and a HND in Animation. I’ve recently completed my MA in Animation at the University of South Wales. I’m proficient in PhotoShop, Illustrator, and a number of other programs. I’m not too bad with a pencil and paper either! I can also code a little HTML and CSS, but I’m a tad rusty on that front.
I first started colouring comics professionally in late 2008, on the UK “Transformers” magazine from Titan Publishing. I’ve also coloured for the US “Transformers” comics by IDW Publishing, and I’ve been lucky enough to work on properties such as “TMNT”, “Shrek”, “Torchwood” and “Doctor Who”, as well some original creator-owned titles such as “Zombies! Hunters”, “Stiffs” and “The Pride”.
In addition to the colouring, I also dabble in drawing as well, but I’ve not had any lineart published by any pro companies yet. I need a LOT more practice!
I also indulge in a bit of writing. The main comic I’ve written (well, co-written!) is the Eagle Award finalist “Lou Scannon“, a sci-fi/comedy spectacular that hits every three or four months. I also co-produce “Bruce Outback” with my fellow Scannon-scribe Jim Bampfield. I’ve a few other different project scripts completed, and I also worked in a team of writers to produce “Squirrels”, a radio sitcom pilot that was recorded in 2010. I acted in that too. Unfortunately, it’s not been picked up, but I’m still hopeful that one of my scripts will someday reach a bigger audience.
Finally, over the years I have developed an interest in local history, urban decay and architecture. My first non-fiction bit of writing, based on these interests, “Retracing The Cardiff Railway” will hopefully be funded via Kickstarter in July 2017, and released in March 2018.
So, yeah… that’s a little bit ‘about’ me!
