Representation US and UK

Hi folks 

A while ago I contacted some agents and after a long story I won't bore you with 
apart from saying that its so mental it could only happen to me.

Alan Lynch Artists has agreed to represent me for the whole of the US of A. 
He is also by way of Knock so we get on like a house on Guinness! 

 I am so chuffed to be represented by him as some of his other
artists are my hero's. No really! Just go look who I'm along side! Me! Amazeballz! 

So this means that if you live or are in the publishing/print industry in the US and
you'd like to hire me you have to go through Alan. No Indy authors apart from the 
few I have on my books from previous work can contact me directly. 
Well you can but I'll have to send you to Alan. This is only applicable to the US.

I've also been represented by Advocate Art in the UK for a few months now and Indy Authors  
or other print professionals on this side of the world CAN contact me. 

Different agents have different regulations.

So thats the newwwssss.....

Agent and Feature

I'm now currently represented in the UK and US by Advocate Art 

Taking on a agent is a big step for any freelance illustrator. In one way you give up some flexibility, in another you will get contracts you never would have. It's not for everyone and I particularly liked Ed and the team in Advocate. 

For indy authors that are looking to hire me, YES I am still open for commission. I am primarily doing publishing work so any private photographer or model commissions will have to be on hold as I am just far too busy at the moment.  

However if your a costume designer, model, MUA or hairstylist 
I am doing my own shoots all the time so just contact me.

In other news I was given a Daily Feature by Deviant Art for  


To say I was highly surprised was a understatement

Cheerio Minions!

A Dark Grave & Happy 2013!

So I'm not a New Year Revolution kind of minion. I'm a "get on with it minion" any time of year. But I will try and update this more! I just always forget and then I remember but a cuppa calls me instead...or a curley wurley!

First cover of the year was actually in 2012, on December 25th but how and ever!

A Dark Grave done for Jessica A Souders, a short story about Gavin set in Elysium. The second one, Rise will be later in January. Any Renegade fans watch this space!

All the best for 2013 - year of the water snake!

Blog Tour

Well folks! Long time no see!

Yes I forgot about the blog again - too busy/life again. 

I suppose I have a lot of news, freelancing for major fantasy publishers, 
taken on by a agent in London and the UK. Doing a bit of charity work as well. Payback. 

I'm doing a blog tour with Allison Suzette Medina of  Allisons Nook  

 It is running from December 8th to 22nd. 
If you go HERE you will see the event listing on FB and open slots 
- plenty left so just ask her to be a part of it.

You get to win lots of shiny prints and "stuff" from Allison as well. Good Christmas presents! 

So have fun, go look and hope to see you all there!
