ITEM: I have artwork that appears in the adult colouring book, Colour Me Bad, edited by ILYA and recently published by Little Brown. I appear alongside Robert Wells, Hunt Emerson and many other wicked-cool British cartoonists. If you visit my website often, then you may be familiar with most of my contributions which includes some of my Jog On strips and a re-ordered Charity Should Begin At Home. ILYA has done a really good job on making all of this artwork look good and the reproduction is great.
ITEM: I have drawn a two-paged strip called What Dave Gone Did for the new Dead Singers Society comic compiled by Samuel C. Williams. I know it's out as copies were for sale at the recent Thought Bubble. I'm not sure where you can buy it from but if you see a copy when you're out and about then take a look as I am really pleased with my contribution.
ITEM: I am exhibiting at this weekend's Northampton Comic Mart from midday in The Racehorse Pub in, well, Northampton. I'll be selling copies of my graphic novel, There's No Time Like The Present, and copies of my comic Thunder Brother: Soap Division. If you're in the area, please drop by and say hello. If you're not, then why not buy a copy of There's No Time Like The Present as a Christmas gift for someone you love, you feel contempt for but also obliged to during the festive period or just for yourself directly from the publisher, Escape Books.

The Without Do is my entry into the Guardian newspaper's recent #OpenComics assignment. #OpenComics has a review panel and a deadline of September 24 but as I haven't heard anything and am unsure if I should hear anything beyond seeing the strip appearing on their website, I've decided that it's probably okay for me to post it here. The Without Do is based upon a video of a rat running around a MacDonald's restaurant in Central Milton Keynes that went viral over the summer.

XXIII originally appeared in issue five of my comic Thunder Brother: Soap Division. Issues one to six can still be ordered from my online shop here. Read all about what ILYA had to say about the creation of XXIII here.

In 2011, I made a personal appearance at Orbital Comics in London as part of their "Two Pauls" evening. The idea for the event was that two creators called Paul at opposing ends of the comics-creating spectrum would talk about their experiences in the field. At one end, there was professional and highly regarded writer Paul Cornell and at the other, there was me. I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was a great success and yet a second "Two Pauls" evening featuring two more Pauls talking about making comics never occurred.
At the top is a drawing I did to promote the event. Considering that I had never seen Paul in the flesh before, I think he was very gracious about my representation of him. Underneath is a quick sketch I drew for Orbital. To my delight, it seemed to be on their shop wall for a long time after.
