After a lot of cutting and assembling by hand my little line of bookmarks is finally ready!

They are professionally printed on card stock (400 gsm), with a special velvety soft surface on both sides. The backs are plain black. They are hand cut and finished with satin ribbons by yours truly.

There are four designs available. The Count, The Countess, The Bride and The Beloved. The three vampire themed ones are also available as a bundle.



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This Christmas I posted a very special gift to my Patreon patrons, a digital English language version of my unpublished children’s book from 2004, Kräntiko & Gremel.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

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.
