10th Feb 2021. My new zine, What is Britain? is available now. It explores a particular strand of the British myth – one that is about knowing one’s place, that the order of things is natural, and that those in positions of power have our best interests at heart. Old photos, found text, my own paintings, collaged together. All proceeds from this zine will be donated to Sophie Lancaster Foundation | The Grenfell Foundation | Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants. More info here.

25th Jul 2020. My new comic, published by Ley Lines, is out now. Lie of the Land is about how we perceive, and make up stories about, the countryside, and how those stories aren’t material truths but ideas that are mutable. It’s also about the work of Alfred Watkins (1855 – 1935) who proposed the idea of ‘leys’, straight trackways in the prehistoric landscape that joined up hills, lakes, and rivers, with human-made features like stone circles, cairns, and barrows. Features collages of old photos, found text, and my own splodgy paintings. It’s available here.
