Happy Halloween Picture featuring the Ilkley Moor alien.

Each year on this site I post a picture relating to Halloween. As a lifelong horror fan and a fan of ghost stories and all things generally spooky the day appeals to my sensibilities you could say.

This drawing depicts the Ilkley Moor Alien. An alien encounter which supposedly took place on Ilkley moor in December 1987. The encounter famously produced a photo of the said alien, which you will find with a quick google search. I remember reading about the case a few years later and vaguely remember hearing about it at the time as I grew up near Ilkley and story would have made the local press. I hope you like this lighthearted take on the Ilkley Moor alien story. Happy Halloween 2019!

The Flood that Did Come in 2020

I am currently working with publisher Avery Hill toward developing my first proper graphic novel for publication. I'll post more about this in the coming months.

This is a really exciting time for me and a great opportunity to get my work to a much wider audience. Avery Hill is a publisher who's work I have admired for some time so it is a real thrill to be working with them and be a part of their roster of artists that includes Tillie Walden, George Wylesol and Katriona Chapman to name just a few.

Here is a picture which shows a mock up the cover of 'The Flood that Did Come' The story in brief is a dystopian, apocalyptic, cosy catastrophe of sorts but much more info will follow in the coming months so stay tuned.
