There is just so much I would love to post up online, but my work is mostly story driven and a lot of that work gives stuff away, I already post far too much online as it is...
So while I still want to share some of that stuff with you guys (and I will if I don't feel it spoils anything) I'm going to try and hold back, which is a pain for me...
But when those things are published, be that via traditional route or as free online comics etc. and you see them in the right context and in completed form I think it will be more enjoyable that way.
To fill that void I will probably be doing more little personal comic's and perhaps some fan art and stuff that isn't part of any of my original narratives which should be fun.
Thanks for watching this space.

A little glimpse into the realm of Grimhole. I haven’t visited grimhole for a while, it is quite a dark place and I was very fixated on tragic story telling at the time.
I approach this project in the way same way that I initially created it, as an outlet for a more loose and relaxed way of working, something I didn’t have to stress over and evoked things like trench warfare artists, Otto Dix etc.

A little sample for the New Albinoria cover/poster, I’m not too adept at digital colouring so this is just a rough splash, we haven’t yet decided on real or digital paint for the whole thing yet.
“Mary Drummond is a fierce young lady who detests her employment and a lot of other things…”
The comic is on hiatus at the moment while we collect more stories and rework our introductory chapter, things are still very much in the works here so do check in now and then!

Oh yes that's right I have this blog here... I really need to keep this updated more, alas my everyday life is not incredibly note worthy at this point and would be tedious reading if I ever had the compulsion to write about it.
I will however continue with the pretty pictures, works in progress and news.
In fact I will have an interesting announcement to make at some point this year but I cannot yet say exactly when.
I shall endeavour to keep you posted!

This is Victoria, a vampire from our nascent comic Blood Politics.
Yes I know *Groan* “Not bloody vampires Thomas! the world is sick to death of blasted vampires.”
I cannot help it alas, since I was a wee lad I thought vampires where cool… though I can understand the fatigue.
This is a project that Jake and I have developed on and off for the last several years, basically every time we see any kind of media that portrays vampires we bemoan it and start work on this comic again so we can sleep at night, at it’s core it is an effort to give the mythos some of it’s dignity back.
Whether the comic will ever achieve that, or if we publish it online or otherwise is another matter, at the moment it is just another project in the development pipeline.

Well some of Bloggers fancy new publishing interface doesn’t agree with my computer at the moment, which is making uploading imagery a little difficult, hopefully I can resolve that soon.
In the mean time you can check my tumblr or facebook page for any work samples that I upload.

Here is a design from our long running fantasy project.
A Faeri messenger, they are short, between 4 and 5 foot, they are also delicate brittle creatures.
But the words they carry are oft of grave import and they are chosen because they are wicked fast and pitiless if drawn into a fight.
A human could snap the arm of a Faeri like a twig, but he would have to catch her first. Which is no mean feat.
