My Bio
I'm an illustrator/designer/musician/radio broadcaster/Ebay tradesman living in Exeter, Devon, UK. You'll notice I placed tradesman at the end of the list - although this brings in the money, it's the least of the 5 I'd rather be doing with my time - but somehow I've landed the gig of illustrating for Starburst Magazine every month for their marvellous Watching Doctor Who column. I also take part in their Blue Box Podcast every week, and present a monthly radio show on www.phonic.fm called the Phonic Screwdriver.

I work fairly fast (I get bored quickly) and my fairly recent love affair with my Wacom tablet has improved things considerably as well as giving me a whole new palette of options.

I signed up to DeviantArt a few months back and didn't get round to uploading. In the small amount of time I've had some work uploaded I've had some nice comments. This is all good as it inspires me to get some more stuff uploaded. I'll probably go through my folders to see what could be appropriate (And good enough). Even better still get some new work ticking over, especially as I seem to be moving over into the digital side of things these days...
