Hi fellow Deviants,

Having completed my final story for Jimbot - a prose story called Don't Read This, scheduled to appear in a future issue of Amazing and Fantastic Tales - I am now up to date on all contractual obligations. This means I can concentrate on my own projects for the foreseeable future without the threat of looming deadlines.

I have several self-penned comics on the go at the moment: Figments - a psychological sci-fi (psy-fi?) about a girl trapped in her own nightmare subconscious, Progeny of the Lost - a steampunk fantasy, and Blood - a family drama disguised as a vampire story. In addition to these projects, I am also beginning to outline a story about a girl whose imaginary alter-ego becomes a separate person with psychotic tendencies. The WIP title is simply Alter-Ego for now.

Due to problems beyond my control, Hollow Girl will not be published through either Blackline or Evil Moose. While I wish all concerned with those companies good luck in the future, I found my time working with them frustrating and dissatisfying. I should stress that the problem was not with the book, which was completed on time and seemed to get everyone very excited, but with the publishers' inability to deliver what they'd promised. I am currently negotiating with British small press companies to find new homes for Hollow Girl and future projects. Figments and Progeny of the Lost have already generated interest, but I'll keep the identity of the potential publishers under my hat for now. I've been burned before, as you know.

Hi all,

My art has appeared in Rob and Ducky, Portent Presents, Captain Elite and Halo Slipping for Portent Comics and Murky Depths issues 1-14, Holly Demonica: Furnace, Halo Slipping: Mengele's Brain and A Glimpse of Hell for HoMD. I have also had work published in Dead By Dawn magazine for SCAR Comics. More recently, I drew The Bounty Hunter and part 1 of A Ghost Named Larry for Moose Crossing, an anthology title for Evil Moose, and Jimbot's Wolf Country #1 and Tiny Facts of Kindness for the GoodCopBadCop Casebook.

I draw in a variety of styles depending on what the story calls for. I have used a cartoon style for various projects but am probably better known for my darker, more realistic style.

I am currently working on Figments - a psychological sci-fi (psy-fi?) comic, Progeny of the Lost - a steampunk fantasy and a couple of horror shorts. I have also tentatively written first few chapters for a horror novel aimed at younger readers.

Other than drawing, I have been in a few bands over the last couple of years. The latest is Poor My Boy, a more laid back project with my girlfriend, and a project that is influenced by Anathema, Tool, Deftones, 30 Seconds To Mars and Thrice. Oddly, despite being a fan of heavy metal all my life, I seem to be better at performing non-screamy music. One of my old bands, Blacken the Name, has now started to gig with a new singer back in Blighty and, to be honest, I am pleased but also jealous as hell!

I moved to Slovakia to teach English in the Summer of 2011. It is the best job I ever had and my students feel more like my friends.

Hi, Luke!
Good to see your other awesome works here!
I see you're in a band as well, that's real cool!

The band is history now, unfortunately, but thanks for taking a look at my pics.
s2ka Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010
Sorry to hear that, I myself have not heard from my band mates ever since they went stateside. Priorities change I suppose but I do miss playing and I haven't played in a very long time.
By the way, I've read 'The Last Precinct', and I enjoyed it! You continue to amaze me with your original and edgy art style and story telling.
Cheers to you, Luke!

Thanks for the comment. Sorry for the VERY late reply but I haven't been on Deviant Art for ages. I am now in a new band and have collected the whole Glimpse of Hell story into a graphic novel.

Word up L-Train! Like the new work.
I've been playing around with some infrared photography recently, which has turned out pretty cool. It's on my page if you want to check it out.
Catch you at work,
