Thank you to everyone who came by my table at London MCM Comic Con! I really love decorating my table for Halloween. I had a great time with my table neighbours @ryuuza-art, @claudetc and @ratherlemony!!




I’ll be at Thought Bubble this weekend in Leeds! I’m sharing table 182b in New Dock Hall with Drew Askew/Ink & Booze.

I’m picking up a brand new gig sketches zine from the printers this week! (Rope Press) It compiles some of the gig sketches from the last year or so plus new comics and illustrations - including ‘Sammy’s Guide to Gig Sketching’ - sharing tips on how to draw on location, in the dark and in the middle of rowdy crowds. Visit my music blog for more gig sketches!

I keep an up to date list of events in the blog sidebar - but don’t forget I have an online Etsy shop if you can’t make it. (That Music Zine Autumn 2016 listing will be added ASAP)


I’m going to be on the Sound & Vision panel in the Cinema of War at 10.50-11.40am on Saturday 5th November. You can find the full Thought Bubble festival program online here.

Thanks! See you there!

Pokemon Drawing Prompts
  • Pokemon from memory (pull a name at random)
  • Draw yourself as a gym leader
  • Draw yourself as a Pokemon trainer
  • Fan-design your fave Pokemon in new Alola Forms
  • Fan-design your fave Pokemon as a Mega Evolution
  • Design a Pokemon Gijinka character (humanoid interpretation)
  • Fan-design a more majestic Dragon/Grass duel type Pokemon than long neck Exeggutor

Misc Fits sticker sheets






I'm launching some new Misc Fits merchandise at Manchester MCM Comic Con this weekend. Misc Fits is a series of slice of life short story comics. I needed to design some stickers for the characters to use when they are using their phones to talk to each other - so I thought it would be fun to make full sets for each character.


I will have brand new FREE MINI COMICS to hand out at this event - so please do come by and say hi! You wont have the comic yet, even if you've seen me at a convention already this year.
