It's all about the narrative, whether it's a Surreal Murder Mystery, Pulp Fiction or Heroic escapades, my artwork allows the story to be told. My influence and inspiriation comes from Rod Serling's Twilight Zone, Nigel Kneale's Quatermass, Edgar Allan Poe, the comics of Lee and Kirby with everything else I've ever seen or heard mixed in, Humour within the surreal, macabre and bizarre often simply the twists that end the stories, the punchline is all important.
