Been I'm back!

It's been a while since my last post...I've been very busy, you see! Earlier posts on here show concept work from my proposed graphic novel adaptation of J M Barrie's Peter Pan. Well, the book is now drawn, published, and in the shops! I have spent the last year promoting the book with Fin Cramb, the colourist...and what an amazing adventure it's been! In the next few posts I will be looking back at the highlights of what has been, by far, the best year of my far!

In the meantime, here's a link to the end result...

Oor Wullie goes to Hollywood!

YES! Those are drawings I did of JIM PARSONS and BILLY BOB THORNTON with OOR WULLIE! And YES! That is JIM PARSONS and BILLY BOB THORNTON holding them!!! Greys added by Fin Cramb.

Peter the ground!

I can now officially announce that I have begun work on my graphic novel adaptation of J M Barrie's Peter Pan. Contracts are signed, and I am two pages into what I can only describe as a massive amount of work. I have been developing this project since 2009, and have done extensive research. I have had invaluable assistance from the Peter Pan Director at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. The book is scheduled for release in 2015. Updates and sample artwork will be appearing here, and on my FB group, Pan by Stref. Please feel welcome to join the group here:
