New Update

Hi guys,

It's been a while since I last did an update so I thought I'd let you hear some news and show you some more images from the book.

First off my first published comic strip is out next week on the 10th of April in Athletics Weekly. The strip is the relaunch of DC Thomson classic and well loved character Alf Tupper, The Tough of the Track.  So if you can pick up a copy and let me know what you think.

Also later this year I'll have several stories out in Anthologies from two GrayHaven books, Addiction and Faith, which look at sports addiction and the search to understand the meaning of faith. My third Anthology piece is with Ninth Art Press in their Sub-culture Anthology and will look at the subculture of track athletes from sprinters, distance runners and jumpers and throwers.

Now onto The Art of Running, the book is going really well and we about half way through with the art and have had some brilliant guest artists come and work on the book doing chapter covers, showing their amazing styles which will really stand out in contrast to Sigit's fantastic art work which fills the rest of the book. Below is an image of one of the covers along with a couple images from the book.

Some new art work

Well the Kickstarter campaign was a great success and thank you to all who supported it.

I just wanted to post up some of the recent art work I've got to show you all how the project is coming along and I'm sure you'll agree with me this art work is just stunning.

The Cover

Hi guys

sorry I've not updated in a little while we've had my Dad's funeral and it's weird as funerals go it was really good the church was packed, they even needed to bring in more chairs and walking in carrying my dad's coffin in to Chariots of Fire even had the toughest of men in tears it was very surreal.

So I thought I'd do a quick update and show off the amazing cover art, let me know what you think.

The Kickstarter is nearly ready, with the finishing touches being added to the video and proof reading and editing being done to the the project story.

But as I say for now enjoy the beautiful cover art.

Good and Bad News

Hi everyone

Thought I'd update you all on how the project is going. We have some great news the lettering is finished for the first 4 pages and the others hsould be done in the next day or so. The lettering has been done by Brett Evans who has done work for Image comics in the past as well as being a Steve Prefontaine fan. More of his work can be found at his website

On a sad note my dad who has been an inspiration to me and guided and coached me in my own running career has sadly passed away after battling bowel and liver cancer for the last 5 years. It is in his memory and in memory of Steve Prefontaine, my two running heroes that I will dedicated this graphic novel to when we fund it on Kickstarter and get it published.
