I'm a writer and artist, working mainly in comic books, and living in the South East of England (although I'm technically half Scottish and half English).
I'm the managing editor of Orang Utan Comics, group editor of AAM/Markosia, writer of Alpha Gods, Hypergirl and Hero: 9-5, and also do freelance inking and lettering work for the likes of AAM/Markosia, Slave Labour, Top Shelf, Image, Marvel/Panini and I letter the official Doctor Who graphic novels for BBC Books.
I was amazed yesterday when an estimated 10,000+ people showed up for the Occupy Portland March. At one point the march covered seven city blocks. I was just amazed and so inspired to be surrounded by so many people uniting and discussing the future of this country together in peaceful solidarity. After the march 2,000 people stayed to occupy Lownsdale and Chapman Squares in Downtown Portland. Thankfully, no one has been arrested and a longterm occupation solution has been approved by the mayor. I just want to thank everyone across the country who is occupying and marching in solidarity, you all inspire and enlighten me. Let us keep this movement alive!
