A NEW FRONTIER
Following on from my years working for MARVEL I worked as a Concept Artist in the Games industry. Following that was one of the biggest breakthroughs for me. I got back into comics but in a very different way. A way that gave more choice and freedom. As much as I had enjoyed working on Marvel books I really wanted to have some sense of ownership of what I was producing. Work on a project that was (if only in part) mine. A chance meeting with writer, Jason Cobley at a comic convention in Bristol led to a brainstorming of ideas and an approach to publishers David Fickling Books. This then resulted in the western comic strip, FRONTIER being commissioned and published.
The 8 part tale was published in the anthology comic, The DFC and then collected as a complete work. At the time of publishing we developed a website with more background info and additional story material. You can find all that at TheWeirdWildWest.com

Following on from the joy of co-creating Frontier I started to develop an idea that was very much my own. In all the years of working as an artist in comics, the time came to finally write.
HORIZON is a semi-autobiographical journey of a young life. A journey through the ups and downs of emotions that challenge us at that age of ‘in between’. Follow the breakdowns and breakthroughs of Ali as she battles with her own demons (and robots) and eventually learns that there is far more to life than what you see.
