Playramas are an innovative and exciting series of card play sets I have developed for the toy and greetings card markets. Each set contains several card cut out stand up characters along with props and backdrops pieces to make up a simple play scene. I have set up the entire project including concept, design, manufacture, marketing and distribution. Although only in it’s first year we already have Playramas in a number of shops around the UK with new retailers joining us as word spreads. Read and see more…
Mirabilis – Year of Wonders
Mirabilis – Year of Wonders is a major series of graphic novels of which the first season, Winter is complete, with Spring almost finished. Written by Dave Morris with art by me, and colours by Nikos Koutsis and published in the Uk by Print Media, and Italy by Allagalla. The story begins with a mysterious comet first seen on New Years day of a year around the beginning of the 20th century, a year now lost in time.
Sam Silver – Undercover Pirate
Sam Silver, Undercover Pirate is a series of 10 story books written by Jan Burchette & Sara Vogler. Each book follows the adventures of Sam Silver, a modern school boy, who has a pirate captain as an ancient ancestor, and is flung back in time to the deck of the Sea Wolf, a pirate ship. I worked directly from the original script, effectively writing my own brief and finding the right moments to illustrate to make the story come alive.
Fantasy Cutouts are a series of stand up fantasy characters, the Standing Heroes, and a small series of 3D card model kits I’ve been developing on and off for a number of years. The idea stems from my interest in fantasy role playing games and the associated scale model hobby. I wanted to design my own model kits and card was the most effective way, as customers can download the kits, print them out and build them. It also allows me to work in a style for older children and adults.
