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.
Now, here’s one I don’t think I’ve posted on here, but I’m over being embarrassed about having been in a Christian rock band now, so you can get to hear this…because musically speaking this is one of the best things I’ve ever recorded. I wrote it, the lyrics are based on a Psalm, but don’t ask me which one now, I haven’t a clue. Again, that’s me singing, with the band behind me (my sister’s actually playing bass on this).
This was actually the first piece of mine to ever be played on the radio…
Yeah…what I said above.
Don’t worry…I’m done subjecting you all to this.
Oh, point of interest, the bass player on this and the last one is my sister.
Blarg…I’ll probably regret uploading this but…yeah…all this talk about bass playing…I wanted to share some of my bass playing with you. And, well, as I did all my bass playing in a Christian band…this is what you get. I think my opinions on the church and Christianity are fairly well documented on here that you’re not going to judge me too harshly for posting this or mistakenly think that I’m in any way proselytising! Anyway, not only is this me playing bass, but I actually wrote this song…heh…
