The Grid


In December, John Swogger and I opened submissions for an anthology of comics about archaeology.

We produced free copies of #0 of the comic (showcasing some of the work being done in this area) to give away at TAG archaeology conference at UCL. If you weren’t there, don’t worry – you can download a copy here and find out more about the comic and our submission guidelines (deadline is September 30th, 2020).

Looking forward to reading your comics!

Comic Workshop at TAG

It’s that time of year again.

I’m heading back to the Theoretical Archaeology Group Conference in mid-December – this time at UCL with the theme of ‘Power, Knowledge and the Past’ (Monday 16 – Wednesday 18 December 2019).

A “Making Archaeological Comics” workshop will be running again – this year with Matt Hitchcock (University of Manchester), myself, John Swogger (Archaeological Illustrator), Nick Overton (University of Manchester) and Katy Whitaker (University of Reading).

If you’re going to be at the conference, please do come along to the workshop. You can register here.

Thought Bubble

I’m headed to Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival in Harrogate at the weekend (9th and 10th Nov). I’m excited to have a table there – I’ll be selling my new comic “Bertha the Brave”, as well as a range of other comics, badges, etc.


If you’re going to be at Thought Bubble please come along and say hi – I’ll be at table number 144a in the Ask for Mercy Hall.

In the meantime, here are the first two pages of Bertha the Brave
