I’m an artist, writer and graphic novelist based in Stromness, Orkney Islands.

I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. According to my parents by the time I was three they’d leave me alone for hours with a load of pencils and paper and let me get on with it.

When I was 12 my dad discovered me reading an issue of Batman and gave me Art Spiegelman’s Maus, which for the first time made me want to be a comics writer as opposed to just a comics creator. If you haven’t read Maus, you should.

When I was 16 I moved to the UK for my A-levels with an art scholarship. I went to a boarding school in Buckinghamshire. Aside from some good friends and some great teachers, I hated it. Apart from the art tuition I received then, I’m self-taught.

I’m most often to be found hunched over a keyboard or drawing board, making stories, usually in the company my wife, editor, ideas-basher and occasional-picker-upper-and-duster-offer Anna, and often with a cat in my lap.
