Oh Deer!

“She sees arise

The second time.

From the sea, the earth,

Completely green.

The cascades fall,

The eagle soars,

From lofty mounts

Pursues its prey.”

Octopus

While on a ferry to Ireland a couple of months ago I was inspired by the waves and landscape to digitally paint this image, featuring this quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Below the thunders of the upper deep,

Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,

His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep

The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee

About his shadowy sides; above him swell

Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;

And far away into the sickly light,

From many a wondrous grot and secret cell

Unnumbered and enormous polypi

Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.

There hath he lain for ages, and will lie

Battening upon huge sea worms in his sleep,

Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;

Then once by man and angels to be seen,

In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

The Trade

My posting has gone to pot recently, partially because I’m currently working on the next book from Frisson Comics 


The Trade Which we are now funding via Kickstarter.

Like with our last book Take Only Photographs, Leave Only Footprints, we’re trying to create a unique horror experience for our readers, using inks and quills to get a very organic line and natural aesthetic to the story. 

I hope if this is any interest you might check out our campaign or even share it for us! This book is a must for indie comic fans 🙂 

Take Only Photographs


Leave only Footprints. 
I’ve finally finished drawing our indie comic, managed to fill 2.5 A3 sketchbooks and use 4 large bottles of ink!
Now it’s time to digitally colour this beast which I’m 50% of the way through which means there’s not long until we print 🙂 exciting times! Details on ordering a copy to come in the next month! More projects by Frisson Comics to come!

We decided to add a project video for our awesome Kickstarter horror comic ‘Take Only Photographs, Leave Only Footprints’  The campaign is currently doing really well and we have 12 days left. I’m finding working on the campaign is really exciting so far and i’m enjoying the response that my art has had from the public, i’m really excited to get it published!

Comic updates 

Spent the last two days promoting our kickstarter for our graphic novel locally with flyers. It was quite rewarding and many local businesses were very supportive, I only hope that people are interested in our campaign.


I’ve also done a lot of editing in the last few days. Making the comic is a very rewarding experience, I’m learning a lot about using different programs I usually wouldn’t have to use such as indesign and I’m also rapidly developing a distinct style of drawing. The top image is all the pages I’ve drawn and edited so far (all 28) I have 40 left to draw, it’s cool seeing all the pages together. The lower page is the latest test print just to see how the newer pages flow into each other and get an idea of the general thickness of the finished comic. The test comic is only 20 pages long so the finished book will be 3 times thicker and heavier.
