Old Titles, New Covers

I've recently spruced up some older zines with new covers. The revamped Bassists of the 70's and
Boogaloo Dudes: The Changes of David Bowie
are both available from my Etsy store.

Kirby-Vision collected

KIRBY-VISION is a 32 page collection of digital collages & illustration that I produced for the Jack Kirby tribute blog of the same name. It's availible from my Etsy store and the cover price of £5 includes a donation to the Jack Kirby Museum.

Three is the Magic Number

Three is the Magic Number: Trios of the Sixties is my latest zine, available from my Etsy shop.
It contains 27 illustrations of your favourite musical trios from the 1960s and forms the last part of my musical decades trilogy. It was quite a consuming book to illustrate, taking a lot longer than planned but I'm super pleased with the end result.

It’s been a long and winding road but Drunk Beatles has finally seen the light of day.
The book presents the history of the rehab four from the dive bars of Hamburg to the
rooftops of London in 28 pages of alcohol related song title puns.

Available from my Etsy shop as a single volume or with an accompanying sketchbook
charting the evolution of the project over the past several years.

up and running sometime this week. Watch this space.

Here’s another preview of one of the books I’ll be publishing this summer. In January, the month of David Bowie’s birth and death, I drew 31 illustrations celebrating the ch-ch-ch-changes of an extraordinary career and posted them to Twitter/Instagram under the hashtag, #JanuBowie. The full set of pics can be found on my Instagram feed.


Wednesday 2 May 2018


With plans to take my artwork out on the road I’ve made a few changes here at the blog. I’ve deleted all of the inspiration posts to focus purely on upcoming projects. Over the next few months I’ll be releasing a series of zines which collect my music and pop culture artwork under an imprint titled: PLAY RECORD.

Planned titles include:

#Inktober 2017: Bassists of the 70s.

#JanuBowie - the ever changing David Bowie in 31 daily illustrations.

A Bolan Tarot - Marc Bolan/T.Rex songs starring a host of 1970s TV/music icons.

Plus the resurrection of an old project featuring four lads from Liverpool.

I’m extremely excited about producing this first batch of zines and plan to table them at upcoming events as well as sell them via Etsy. I’ll also be selling prints and original artwork once all of the stars align.

Expect lots of activity here over the next few months and be sure to follow my Twitter and Instagram feeds for news and links also.

Inktober - Thirty-one 70's Bassists

My first Inktober challenge featured portraits of bassists from the 1970’s which I'm planning to collect them in a zine later this year. Here's a taster for now.
