The event will launch the second episode of an exciting graphic novel series: Domestic Bliss, and other book art. There will be an exhibition of artwork along with films about drawing visual poetry presented in slow frame animation and the artist will be present drawing live demonstrations. Their will be food wine and informal chat.

Throughout the Domestic Bliss series we encounter two battles for survival. Bliss, a domestic cat gets lost and has to learn to fend for herself in the wilderness. Her owners, The Hobnobs have lived too long in the past where, as dancers, they once delighted and amazed audiences the world over. With the loss of Bliss, all these memories are swept away and they too are flung into a darkness in which the town of Darlseville becomes an increasingly alien urban wilderness that threatens to engulf them…


Bliss is a visual feast with an environmental twist...a graphic novel that speaks volumes, a bitter sweet epic on modern living. The series will comprise of six episodes offering a new take on previous comic book trends.

A collection of key Illustrations for the Domestic Bliss series was published in the Images 35, Best of British Illustration Catalogue last year.

Life stirs again...

Bliss is hungry

Is it a dream or reality; this dark pang?

To Forget?

Perhaps we shall find out in the second much anticipated episode of…

Updates on The Golden Hour

It was around this time last year that I shared an article about some of the work my partner Andrew Bridgmont is doing for the theatre. I'd like to do the same again...

To quote Andrew:

"After a trial run of the short play The Golden Hour at The Poetry Café in Covent Garden last autumn, Rachel Lerman from the King’s Head Theatre in Islington invited us to present it as part of their ‘Without Décor’ season which is designed to help in the development of new writing.  With this in mind, we are also adding two new short plays for feedback called, Landmarks and The Summer of Love and giving the three pieces an umbrella title of Short Plays From The Coast. Our aim is that with the help of feedback each week we are able to form the pieces into a cohesive unit with loosely related themes.  It would be great to see you on one or all of the Saturdays and to hear what you think, or just come along for the show and a pint. The event takes place on three consecutive Saturdays in Sept". (See link and further info here)
