Below are some of the rarer stories I’ve done over the past few years.  Hope you enjoy them!

Crazy Neighbours (Enlight Media)

Crazy Neighbours was an anthology comic sold in head shops across Europe, but which never made it to the UK.  It was very popular and a number of issues were put out, and I wrote quite a few stories for them – mainly illustrated by Gavin Mitchell, Hunt Emerson and Rory Walker.  Here’s an example of a 3-page story, illustrated by Gavin Mitchell.

Not One Minute of Silence (Ctrl Alt Shift)

Commissioned by Ctrl Alt Shift for their “Exposing Corruption” anthology and Illustrated by Warren Pleece, this is the true story of a friend who went to Colombia to record human rights abuses, and becoming witness to a murder.  The story was later translated into Spanish, and was circulated in Colombia.

Monophobia (Accent UK)

Made for Accent UK’s “Phobias” anthology and illustrated by William Volley, this is a short story about the fear of being alone – but with something of a twist.  This was my first published work.

Divinity, Existence and Toast (Accent UK)

My favourite of the short stories I’ve produced, this was made for Accent UK’s Robots anthology, and is usually the short story I show people when I want to give examples of my work.

Another story commissioned by Accent UK, this was for their Zombies anthology, and portrays an ordinary man trying to carry on with ordinary life as best he can – during a zombie infestation.
