I come from a collection of small Ulster borough towns, each one closer to the sea than the one before it. I do not live in isolation, but sometimes it feels that way.
While in Ulster, I never got shot or exploded. I had a gun pointed at me once, and lost a few dear friends, as the result of retardation that happens anywhere. I'm a recent BA grad from Oxford Brookes in Combined Studies: Media, Society and Education.
I've been drawing comics for other people to see since 1997.
I'm happy exchanging ideas and information with new people. My livejournal is more a typical blog, than a full-on website, with essays, articles, comics, photos etc.
I can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org Please don't add me to any instant messaging lists, unless I know your association, by prior introduction such as email or meeting.
