Scottish Independence Comic

Last year I drew this comic about my feelings on Scottish Independence.  It was meant to go into an anthology, but with that delayed and with the vote now just months away, I agreed with the editor that I should put it online.  I have presented them here in the page spread format that was originally intended for printing, so each jpeg is actually two pages side-by-side.




If you like my comics, you can support me by buying some here or downloading some here!

Or if you want to learn more about making comics, and live in Edinburgh, I have a comic course starting 8th May 2014... more about it here.

Comics Class.


I recently got the opportunity of teaching an 8 week course in comics creation at Edinburgh's Leith Academy.  It was a really exciting experience, and the artists I taught were a very enthusiastic bunch, whose dedication to their work was extremely encouraging.  A lot of great comics got made on the course, and I was pleased that I managed to encourage and help guide these artists in what they wanted to do.  From comics newbies to more experienced artists, they all showed a lot of talent and some fantastic ideas - and I think each of them got something good out of the course.

Anyway, term two starts soon enough, and while some of my students have vowed to return, I'm looking for others to come along and join the class.  Anyone with an interest in getting into comics will gain something from the class - I know from experience that even just having a regular slot in your week to do comics can make a huge difference.

The class costs £39.50 / £24.00 for the 6 weeks.  Running from the 8th of May.  You can book via 0131 553 2810, through Leith Academy, which is where the class is held.

Digital Editions

You can now easily buy digital editions of my comics via Gumroad.  For just 99p you can get a copy of any of the Filmish issues (except the out-of-print issue 1), or a copy of my autobio comic Grow- Tales of Parenthood.  For a limited time you can use this link to get Filmish: Sets and Architecture for a measly 69p!

Don't forget you can still buy hard copies of all of these from my usual shop.  The Filmish Megapack contains the three issues of Filmish and some postcard prints, which may/may not be the perfect Christmas gift for someone.

Thought Bubble 13


I'll be heading down to Leeds this Friday for Thought Bubble's weekend Comic Con (Nov. 23rd/24th).

I'll be bringing along loads of comics, postcards and maybe some prints.  This will be the first showing of Filmish issue 4 at an English comic con, and you'll be able to pick up all the previous issues as well.  I'll also be selling the last few copies of my first autobiography comic 100 Tiny Moments and will have copies of my more recent book Grow.

I'll be sharing my table with the wonderful Katie Green who'll be selling her amazing new graphic memoir Lighter Than My Shadow

'Scottish Stem Cell Stories' Out Now!

My most recent science comic project is now available to read for free online.  The comic sets out to examine some of the research being done in Scotland right now into stem cells and regenerative medicine.  It's a truly exciting field, full of challenges and possibility, and one I was glad to get an insight into.



The comic was written by Barbara Melville, who gave the whole thing an interesting twist and a sense of character and exploration that was fun to work with.  Essentially the comic is a sequel or companion piece to last year's Hope Beyond Hype, which can still be read here in its new and improved interactive version.

Filmish - Food On Film

My latest comic Filmish: Food on Film has just arrived back from the printers, and is looking really nice.  The fourth issue of my ongoing series of comics on film analysis and history takes on some truly amazing films, with cult favourites like Alien and The Matrix, sitting alongside cinematic classics like Tampopo and Citizen Kane.

It's on sale now, so to celebrate here's another little preview.

Filmish #4 Preorder and Digital Editions.


Filmish #4 will be officially released on Wednesday the 14th of August, but to grab a headstart and show your support you can pre-order it now via my Gumroad shop.

Preorders will receive a free digital download of the comic that will be emailed to them automatically on Tuesday the 13th, giving them a chance to read it before anyone else does!

I'll soon be offering digital downloads of all my comics, all for a much lower price than the print editions.  Meanwhile, all of my print comics will now ship with a digital version included for free when you buy through Gumroad.

I'm still getting this all set up, so let me know if you have any problems.

UPDATE: I'm now using Gumroad only to sell digital editions of my comics.
