Midnight Man gets an 'honourable mention' from Curiosity of a Social Misfit

Back to business, and nice to notice that Patrick Scattergood over at the Curiosity of a Social Misfit site gave Midnight Man an 'honourable mention' in the best graphic novels of 2015 category for his end of year awards.

Considering the amount of books published, I consider that an award it itself, so thanks very much Patrick!

Nice to see my friends over at Accent UK get a few mentions and a runner up spot for Stephenson's Robot #1 (which features my design work) as best comic book! Well done guys.

RIP Simon Bloor

I wanted to pay my own tribute here to my dear brother Simon, who sadly passed away November 15th 2015, aged just 45.

My thoughts go to his wife, Elizabeth and his three children, Alex, Benjamin and Joseph.

It was thanks to Simon that I got into drawing, as he was much better than me growing up and I wanted to draw like him. He got me into comics too and he too was very fond of sci-fi, especially Star Trek.

Not a day goes by where I don't think of him, and I wanted to write these words just to say that I miss him terribly. RIP my dear brother.
