Masters Of The Universe: The Next Chapter!

Finally learn what happened to Skeletor after the events of the Masters Of The Universe movie! This was done for the Prince Charles Cinema's "Good-Bad Movie Club" screening of the movie. MOTU was one of the first movies I ever saw at the cinema, closely following the He-Man/She-Ra: Secret of the Sword movie, both of which my Dad took me to (he had to put up with a lot of Greyskull back then). Even though its a little dopey and ropey (and totally steals Superman's intro and theme tune) its still pretty fun and hold a special Gwildor shaped place in my heart.

I'm going to be teaching classes in Comic book art and Illustration at the University Of Bath from October.

Details about the courses can be found here at the Bath ICIA website. I'll see you kids in class!

Ghost Cake!

Another fake book cover for my portfolio at Advocate Art. These were really fun to do and I think they are some of my best work. Certainly my best work featuring phantom baked goods...

The Mystery Of Frankenstein's Vampire!

This is a fake book cover done for my portfolio at Advocate Art, my agents. Unfortunately I haven't written a story to go with it but it sort of writes itself doesn't it?

Monkey Man Begins!

Part one of The New Adventures of Monkey Man is now online at Film Threat! Monkey Man is the brainchimp of writer Brian Lynch (IDW's Angel, Spike and forthcoming Ninja Turtles: Raphael micro series). He's written an awesomely hilarious strip and I couldn't be happier to be adding my dumb doodles into the mix! New stories are up every week so check it out and laugh until you cough up delicious blue furballs of comedy!

Hello, Hauser. Still bulging, I see...

Total Recall was one of those classic ultra-gore masterpieces I got to see when I was slightly too young. Along with Robocop and Predator, all the exploding heads and liberal F-bombs shaped me into a fully functioning adult (who spends his time drawing fan-art).

Also I once saw the guy who played Quato! (the man, not the little stomach-gremlin, that would be weird)

Spoiler Goose!

This is probably the most important picture of a goose bursting out of someone's stomach that I'll ever draw...

This was a comic done for Party Truck USA, an awesomely funny podcast by Brian Lynch, Rich Monahan, Brian Sadecki and Jordy Bogguss (as well as many guest stars) that races down the pop culture highway firing bullets of sweet comedy at all the movies, comics and tv shows along the way, much like that game, Chase HQ I had on the Commodore 64 when I was 8. I urge you to check it out and LOL your :( away.

After sending this picture to PTUSA I got a response from Brian Lynch which convinced me to send him a copy of my comic, that then lead to Brian offering me the chance to draw his webcomic Monkey Man and the rest is the future!

So the moral of this story is.... uh, draw geese? I guess... also listen to funny stuff. I dunno.

This is too much madness to fit into one text!

Attack The Block is an awesome film and I urge everyblud to go see it. I've been a big fan of Joe Cornish since The Adam & Joe show and his radio shows with Adam Buxton are part of the small group of podcasts that keep me sane while I scribble away at my desk. I can't wait to see what he does next.

Heres to you Torpedo Commander Cornish!

Monkey Man Returns!

Good Monkey related news everybody! I'm proud to announce I'm going to be the new artist for the awesome web-comic Monkey Man. Its written by Brian Lynch (IDW's Angel and Spike books and web cartoon Angry Naked Pat), he's one of them Hollywood funny dudes you're always hearing about so I can't wait. More blue furry news as it happens!

I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.

When I was 15 I was obsessed with Pulp Fiction and everything Tarantinoesque. Its still one of my favorites, one of those rare movies that tells a story in a way you've NEVER seen before and it blows my tiny mind (all over the back seat of the car).

I enjoyed drawing all the characters in little boxes on my Shaun Of The Dead poster and thought I'd do it again with Pulp Fiction's behemoth cast. You can see them in better detail here...

OMG I CAN'T WAAAAAaaaaaaaaaiit.

I'm looking forward to going to see Tim and Eric live in London at the end of the month and I've been watching their show a lot lately. Its the perfect blend of awkwardness and insanity. This was fun to do and give it the requisite strangeness that a tribute to them deserves. Great job!

Ronin Dogs!

My tribute to Jennifer and Derek from Mark Pearce's Ronin Dogs, an awesome comic series. I had the pleasure of meeting Mark last week at Bristol comic con and traded my POS comics for issue 1 & 2 of his book. Its seriously funny and full of badass artwork of sexy ladies fighting robots and aliens plus explosions. If you get a chance to pick it up I recommend it. Tell 'em Big Jimmy sent ya!

Check out Mark's blog here!

"Now We Are Running..." On sale NOW!

'Now We Are Running...', my first full comic book with words and pictures by me is now available here at my Big Cartel page!

It's a collection of pop culture spoofs n' goofs with a little bad language and violence thrown in because I think it's big and clever.


Meet Steven and George, two young-buck, hot-shot directors with Hollywood dreams in their eyes. Finally, learn the sordid (and almost sort of maybe true) stories behind some of Spielberg's greatest films!


Discover the legend of the Vangrooover Brothers, three body-building triplets from a German muscle-family who undergo a heroic metamorphosis and then go on adventures with fighting and explosions and that!

The comic had a great debut at the Bristol Comic and Small Press Expo last weekend, I met loads of awesome artists and got con fever so hopefully we may meet at a future show oh dear reader of my blog! (I'll be wearing a flower in my lapel)

Update: The comic is now available at Excelsior! Comics in Bristol (Near to Cabots Circus). Check them out, they rock.
