Euston Concourse and Beyond

The 'Beyond' is the descent into the subterranean world of the London Underground. Based on real life events, we delve deep down into the mind-bending, ordered chaos of the world below... watch your step!

Roman Holiday

Some stories need a little time to cook or a window amongst a mass of other work to emerge. This story is another nugget of superness from the Wild One, Kirsten Wild. It's too good a story to lie idling on her computer, so we decided to give it a new injection of life...recast some characters, super-charge some lines and scribble some scenes. It's a work-in-progress so watch this space...

Deep, deep down

A few weeks back I started a Tumblr account, the aim of which was to have a space where I could share sketches and ideas around my contracting a severe Streptococcal infection in 2013. Not the lightest of subjects, however, during the last two years, the experience has taken me to places that are as fascinating as they've been challenging.
The suddenness of the illness, two weeks in a harrowing coma, thats best described as a 'drug induced purgatory', and the consequences of losing a limb are all areas I'm planning to explore through pictures.
I've been doodling around the edges of these subjects for some time, and now, two years on I feel I've got the clarity with which to start drawing. As & when I'll be posting updates at http://inkyline.tumblr.com/

Don't Pick The Flowers

I love picking titles for comics, a vast array of options for a vast array of ideas, some of which will never make it past the corner of the sketch book. 'Lost in Klimt' morphed into 'Don't Pick The Flowers' in a matter of a view panels.
Imagine if you could inhabit the world of a painting...

Lost In Klimt

Probably my last Klimt comic for a while. I'm working on a short comic that explores movement and perspective. I've always loved the fullness and sensuality of Klimt's work and it seems like a good place to play. I'm hoping to be in and out of this comic by the end of the week, so I'm going to keep it simple with line and a blush of colour.
My sketchbooks are filling up with contorted figures, this work is in a way a pre-runner to a bigger piece of work I'm planning on doing at a later date.
Lost In pics in progress...

Tales from a wild & fragrant youth

Cutting Out The Bull

Salad Days

Darken Our Skies

I was having a long overdue shed tidy when I came across these snippets of work from way back when I was a young whipper-snapper. I adored my dip-pen and abused it brutally, mashed up collage and pushed oil bars around. Without wanting to sound pretentious, I was keen not to be pigeon holed, I wanted to make narrative art rather than illustration - Some things never change.


A little excursion along our wild coast - Bike

RAYNARD was the name of the our first family canoe. And in Raynard we paddled noisily along the rivers of Devon and Sussex, amidst the noise we managed to marvel at life on and in the river. 

RAYNARD the comic is dedicated to a good friend of mine who is expecting her first child. Its simply a tale about parenthood and the wonder of childhood.

In many ways I think I can stop here...it says it all really.
Life before and after Necrotizing Fasciitis.

I don't want to dwell forever on this theme. I believe in moving on, however, this is a chapter of my life that I want to explore creatively, and now I think I'm ready to.

  • It was a terrifying, weird and intriguing experience...and I'd be a crap artist if I ignored it. My aim is to bring colour and beauty to something dark and ugly, not to over-indulge it and keep one foot firmly and optimistically on terra firma - erm...X
