My new book, What Would Marx Do?, is now finished, and is due to be published by Octopus Books in March of next year. You can read more about it here. If you’re eager, you can preorder it on Amazon. As well as writing this book, I also illustrated some of it. Some of these pieces are for sale in the gallery, but – understandably – the publishers would like me to keep the other illustrations from public view. However, if you were interested in buying any of the originals, you can contact me so that I can arrange a private digital viewing.

Internet marketing genius that I am, 17 years after setting up a website, I now have a newsletter – well, three actually. It’ll be very occasional, very unspammy, and subscribers will get 5% off (off what, exactly, is yet to be decided…). It’ll also be very functional, less “here’s a thinly veiled piece of marketing clickbait masquerading as something interesting” and more along the lines of “Here art here” (to quote ‘Withnail and I’) or “Me book good – you go here”. Stuff like that. It’ll also keep those interested up to date on The Illustrated Book Club. But you can choose what to hear about, and edit your preferences any time.
Anywayroad, go here, and get 5% off … things …
A quick announcement to let everyone know that TIBC now has its own Facebook page (see here). Join me there to chat, suggest titles, and moan about Facebook (well, I’ll be moaning about Facebook – you’re welcome to join me…). Also, just a reminder that TIBC is also on Goodreads (for book discussion) and Patreon (for sketches, giveaways, postcards… etc).
So, I’ve just come to the end of the artist residency at Gower College Swansea. Last month, I did a little exhibition at Mission Gallery, Swansea with fellow artists in residence, Jason and Becky, and this coming month will see a joint show with them at Elysium Gallery, Swansea.
So, I’m currently preparing some new work, which I’ll be showing with some recent and older pieces. I’ll be sharing these as I finish them, as well as works in progress, sketches and doodles, via the usual social networks and Patreon (where the interested can support and follow me).
The exhibition will start on August 7th, and run through August 30th. You can read more details about the show here.
