Here’s some more of my old art work from the APT show in 07. Three embroideries of female characters that appeared in 60’s Superman comics. The front of the embroideries were turned to face the wall so only the reverse sides were visible.

Here’s a drawing of some boots.

Here’s a comic about death I did for ArtReview magazine a few months back. It uses embroidery linocut and pressed flowers.

a few images from the final story in Banal Pig comic #4 (minus the poem by Gareth Brookes) detailing the last days of the world from Jolly Bear’s perspective.

This was printed in greyscale, but I added an extra colour to give it a bit more depth.

As of today you can download my embroidered and lino printed graphic novel The Black Project through Sequential the free comics app for Ipad.

My hand embroidered and linocut graphic novel The Black Project is out now.

Available from the Myriad Editions table at this weekends Thought Bubble Festival along with some original linocut prints.
