I am an illustrator and author who grew up in Ireland, and now lives in London, UK.
I’m the author of three graphic novels, and dozens of short stories. How to Survive in the North, my first book, was selected as a book of the year by Publishers Weekly, The Washington Post and The Irish Examiner.
Since 2016, I have published two more books– Permanent Press, a satire of the comics industry, and Americana (And the Act of Getting Over It), an autobiographical account of my 2016 attempt to walk from Mexico to Canada.
I have been a full time author and illustrator since 2014, when I graduated from The Center for Cartoon Studies– a cartooning school in rural Vermont, USA. I also work as a colourist and colour flatter, and have contributed to more than ten books.
