Kräntiko & Gremel

Dec 28, 2019 in My art and illustration


This Christmas I posted a very special gift to my Patreon patrons, a digital English language version of my unpublished children’s book from 2004, Kräntiko & Gremel. Longtime followers might remember it!

This is the first time I’ve made the full book available in any form, and from now on it will be available to all patrons, no matter how much you pledge.

Pledges start at $1 a month.

Happy Holidays!


The Seagull Vampire King of Whitby is here!

My new comic is finally for sale! I’m having a special introductory price of £15 until next Sunday, when the price will go up to £20.

I have also lowered the prices on some of my other comics, most notably the remaining copies of Seaside, which are now also available for £15.

You can find them all at, and of course those of you with Patreon discount codes can use those as well.

I posted all about the process of making this comic over at Patreon.


New Patreon tier!

Sep 9, 2019


To keep track of how many Vampire Lounge member badges I have left I made a special tier called Vampire Lounge - Original 13.

This tier is exactly the same as the Vampire Lounge (complimentary print each month, discount codes and more), except you’re also guaranteed to get the badge.

It’s super limited and as of writing this there are only four slots left!
