I spent the majority of 2011-2012 picking away at a longer story called Gauntlet, which was to be a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story about holiday camps, arcade games and being a shy kid. 

For various reasons it never really clicked - my working methods were all over the place and I never actually wrote a full script, choosing to work (for some inexplicable reason) in little segments, hoping they would piece together.  In hindsight, this was never going to result in a satisfying narrative.

I've thought about going back to it a few times, but after getting into Adventure Time years later, the mix of kid banter and sword and sorcery sequences don't feel as fresh to me now.  So, for your perusal, here's some of the better work produced for it...

No Sad Stuff

Back in January I was asked to take part in an exhibition at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles that would pay tribute to the early comedic work of Tom Hanks.  Here's the resulting piece.  I was torn between Splash, Dragnet and Big, but the latter had the most iconic elements to it.  How could I resist drawing Zoltar?

The exhibition ran from 13th - 20th June and work is still up for sale on their website.
