Hi fans, I'm Gary. Let's just bypass the small talk, shall we? Good.

I'm an artist, I make comics, books and the odd sculpture here and there. A lot of my comics are set in Newcastle, including the crime fiction of Nightbus, with Chris Jones, and the superheroics of the forthcoming Sugar Glider, with Daniel Clifford. My latest output has been Grainger Street, a subjective tourist guide to one street in the Toon. I have been a member of the Paper Jam Comics Collective since day one and have contributed to every anthology the group has brought into the world. Most recently, I produced the cover for Art... and that.

For Show & Tell, I've produced a short Nightbus story, focussing on some of the comic's other characters. Here's a preview of page 1.

Hi, my name's Andy.  I'm the cartoonist who instigated this project, so I suppose it makes sense if I initiate the awkward smalltalk.  How are you doing?  Was the traffic bad on the way here?  Etc, etc.  

I'm a heavily-bearded writer and illustrator from southern Scotland, but based in Newcastle upon Tyne.  I illustrate for Mustard magazine and Alan Moore's Dodgem Logic, amongst other titles.  I put out comics occasionally, including the autobiographical tomes Melanchomic and Coupledom.  I am a member of the Paper Jam Comics Collective and have contributed to a number of their anthologies.

I am also one of the contributors to the initial volume of Show & Tell, with an original 7-page story entitled Madam Doreen, Medium.  Here is a preview:

Please keep checking back with the blog for more updates on the showcase.  In the meantime, if you were bored, or are a fan of puns, you might want to check out my blog.
