1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

By day, I work at the local newspaper, where I produce graphics and a diverse range of advertisements for many clients. By night I don my self-publisher/artist attire. Back in 2006 one of my projects won an Eagle Award, here in the UK. I am forever indebted to everyone who made that possible.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favourite piece is this very large SLAINE drawing by Simon Bisley.

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I have been collecting originals since the late 80s. If I remember correctly I started off with a few Outsiders pages by Alan Davis, moving on to 2000 AD art from Glenn Fabry, Sean Phillips, etc. I then became involved in trading art (as we all do it seems). Over the years I have owned some really special pieces, Jack Kirby splash pages (most notable a Loki page from Thor and an Ikarus eye-blasting splash from The Eternals). I then began buying via the internet; Simon Bisley is my favourite artist, but I have many. I love the Victorian illustrator Arthur Rackham and I'm privileged to own a small ink drawing by the artist himself. My collection is always changing, in hindsight, not always for the better.

4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

I only have a few pieces on the wall, most are leaning against it I'm sorry to say. But it's always a thrill to flip though whenever I pass by on my way to the drawing board.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

Mmm, I think my top five original pages would have to be Silver Age covers by Jack Kirby (yeah, I know) Fantastic Four #1 and Avengers #4 and Steve Ditko's Amazing Spider-Man #3, #25 and #29. Seriously, wouldn't it be great if some of those classic covers surfaced somewhere?
