FETISH FRIDAY: CAT SPARKS
I'm running a new series of guest posts throughout 2015: Fetish Friday. Don't get all sweaty in the pants—I’m going back to an older definition of the word, and asking artists to show us something that helps them with the ritual of creation, some part of th...

STORY GENESIS: THE LOVELY QUIET
In the wake of the Writers Festival, it's apparent that one of the reasons for my ongoing creative despair has been the lack of creation. For a long time, I've not being writing anything new, simply stirring the embers of words already committed, thoughts a...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY ADDENDUM: CHARLIE HEBDO
So: two days ago, three murders burst into the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and gunned down two policemen and 10 members of staff. At least another 11 have been injured. There's a lot of talk around the content of the magazine, the...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY GOES TO THE PARTY
I use Random.org to choose the order I post the sketches for Thumbnail Thursday. The fact that today is my father's 71st birthday is not only entirely coincidental, it's also rather bleakly funny. "Honey, the clown is here!"

THIS SUNDAY AT HOME WORKING HAS BEEN PRESENTED TO YOU BY TWO DAYS AT A THREE-DAY WRITERS FESTIVAL
It's no secret to anyone who has me as their Facebook friend, but I've been suffering from a fair bit of darkness and despair recently. My writing has been non-existent. The editorial process for the children's book now known as Magrit has been a bizarre co...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY DOES APART AFTER DEATH
Here's one that I got as far as pencilling and inking to the best of my ability. My not-very-good ability. This is why I'm an author. That and my utter inability with a guitar.... a paintbrush.... science......

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY ASSEMBLES BEHIND SOMEONE'S BACK
I'm just saying: I nailed every single expression in this one. Every. Single. One. What's sad is, I highly doubt I'd have the skill to deliberately recapture them this well if I tried to pencil and ink the thing properly. "Don't lie to me, Doris. I can smel...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY FEELS THE LOVE, SHERWOOD STYLE
Sometimes, the image explains itself. Sometimes, it requires a caption. Sometimes, the caption is too bloody convoluted for its own good. This is one of those times. "Feeling the arrow strike him, Robin acted without thought, and instantly  loosed an arrow ...

MY GRANDFATHER'S AXE
This is Spike. When all's said and done, he's just about my oldest friend. I've known people longer (waves: Hi, Seanie!), but Spike's been my constant companion for verging on 22 years. Other friends have moved away, or moved on, but Spike's been by my side...
