I am a writer and illustrator, based in London. My first graphic novel “The Rime of the Modern Mariner” was published by Random House in 2011 to critical acclaim, and my next book, a biography of the folk singer Woody Guthrie, will be released in 2014. I am a political cartoonist for the Guardian Newspaper, alongside regular cartooning slots for the Literary Review and the New Statesman. I have also illustrated for a variety of album covers, book covers, articles and editorials, and am currently working with Passion Pictures, storyboarding my first novel into a short animated film. At Actant I am a Storytelling Fellow.
