Hard Realities, Happy Accidents

Drawing at the Bee's Mouth

My grand plan of blogging my brains loose through this time has been knocked on the head by cold hard reality. The single biggest realisation I’ve had since this time away from work started is the sanctity of time. Before it, I was a little loose on time. I was a big one for saying [...]

Resources Part 2: Finding Flow.

Thinking, thinking...

“Man’s maturity: to have regained the seriousness that he had as a child at play.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche This week, and particularly yesterday, I’ve found myself thinking about three things: finding focus in my own work, my year and a half old daughter and her 4 month journey so far at a Montessori school, and [...]

Getting Things Done… Resources Part 1


My hope in this post is to share a couple resources I’ve come across in the last year that have helped me hone how I approach getting the stuff done. It’s not great secret that, if you choose a profession in the arts where there’s no ladder to climb, you just need to keep making [...]

Returning Home…


Gertrude, Sprout and I just got back from our first big trip. The good news was that Sprout swept the gold in the Quiet Baby on an Airplane Olympic Games on the way out. The bad news was that on the way back, she looked at us and said, “Are you people nuts? I’m two [...]

My sketch of Fabry while he was talking

One of the best things about Brighton is the close proximity of lots of amazingly talented, creative people. One of the best parts about that is that lots of creative comic types have called Sussex and South England home. So on the last Monday of each month, Corinne Pearlman (my editor at Myriad Editions) and [...]

Angoulême 2012

Nye Chatting up the Wall

This weekend saw our third trip to Angoulême, France. Why Angoulême and why three times, you ask? Good question. Angoulême is a sleepy little town on a hill by a river that is famous for having been a paper mill town. But famous now as being the host for 39 years now of Europe’s largest [...]

Cows and New Starts

Vachement bien

I won’t go into the detail in this post, but let’s just say I made a bunch of criminals week last week by giving them to opportunity to steal my bag. There was a lot of stuff in there, but most importantly for this post, when I lost the bag, I lost my current sketchbook [...]

2011 Resolutions Revisited: The Good, the Bad & the ‘Meh’

Only took 8 years, but worth the wait

“Change happens in an instant; making it stick is the hard part.” – no idea who said that. New year, new you. Same every year. We all wake up on January first with this sense that anything is possible; whatever happened in the last year was just so much water under the bridge. This year [...]

Fire Fighter

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted. Lots of things in the works that are an excuse: the day job, freelance, prepping the book for press and taking some time off to go back to the States. Gertrude and I even shot a wedding for friends (if the bride and groom are down, we’ll [...]
