I grew up in Worthing, a seaside town in England famed for bringing forth the creators of Tank Girl, being the childhood playground of Billy Idol, housing Oscar Wilde while he wrote the Importance of Being Earnest... and maybe you've heard of Leo Sayer? Maybe not. At any rate, if you've ever been to Worthing you'll never forget laying out on your towel on the knobbly pebble beaches. They leave quite an impression.

 My hometown was nicknamed "Sunny Worthing". Sunny compared to Manchester that is... (Photo by me).

At the age of 19, I emigrated to the United States and ended up studying at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where I got my Bachelor of Fine Arts. (I did much later attend grad school for psychology for a while, but that's another story!) Upon graduation, I soon went from scruffy scenic painter to slightly-better-dressed graphic designer, then later moved to the West Coast. I've been going down the design path ever since, without letting go of my love of drawing, painting – and now making graphic novels (comic books – I'm on my third one now). Over the last 10 years I've lived through the rise and fall of San Francisco, a couple of times. I've worked at dotcoms, agencies and banks, had some art shows, painted a couple of murals, made some very quirky animation, and published graphic novels.  

During the crash of 2001, I worked in an art store... Yet it seems there's enough creativity in the air here to ensure a San Franciscan is never down for long.

Anyway, it looks like I might remain in my nest here for a while longer at least. The seagulls here remind me home.
