Has Anybody Got a Match?

General / 04 September 2020


When a young girl discovers a lonely old grandfather dragon unable to breathe fire, she's determined to help him, even if she first must convince her family that he exists!Charming illustrations bring Linda Crowley's delightful characters to life as your children learn that it's important to care for others, even when they are very different from you. 

So a little while ago, I got the chance to work on a fantastic children's book called 'Has Anybody Got A Match', written by Linda Crowley. I'm so chuffed to share it with you as the digital version has been officially published by Annona Press! Get it HERE!

Covid has affected the release of the book but it will soon be released in paperback. I'll be sure to post a link once they are available. 

If you pick up the book, I would really appreciate if you could leave a review on Amazon to let others know what you think ^__^ 

If you want to wait for the paperback, It would still be great if you could share the book link around to help the book reach a wider audience. 

Thank you and enjoy!

Life Finds A Way

General / 23 August 2019

I worked on a comic with my friend Matthew (@Nuclear Jackal) at the end of last year and it got accepted as part of the Cloudscape Anthology 'Life Finds A Way". The Book is a collection of comics from different artist, finding hope for humanities future.

Matthew came up with the short story called 'Meanwhile' and the art in the comic is drawn by myself. I was a really great collab!

The book is now on Kickstarter and if you are interested in stories that challenge the doom and gloom we often see in apocalypse stories then please check out the book here

Here's a little character concept art for the comic we worked on:

Tengu Arts Podcast Interview with Soundrel Media

General / 09 July 2019

I got interviewed by James over at Soundrel Media about my artwork!

Listen here or search 'Tengu Arts' on Spotify. 

I've never been on a podcast before so it was both exciting and not gonna lie, I was a little nervous! If you can get past that as well as my Scottish accent and remnants of a nasty cold then maybe you'll find it interesting to learn a little bit more about my work and about me too I guess!


I'm now on Etsy!

General / 30 June 2019

Over the years, many of you have asked if my art was available to buy as prints and I always made the promise that they would be 'soon'....SOON has finally arrived people! I'm so pleased to now offer the first set of arts from my collection which I hope to expand on more and more!

KupoCon, TriPom Card Game

General / 08 May 2019

After the whirlwind adventure that was #TheWeePom in January, I was asked to create some artwork for TriPom (KupoCon's card game).

This was such a fun project and allowed me to draw more of what I love 💕 I never thought I'd ever get to do something like this so to see it happen, is like a dream come true! 🌈✨ Thanks so much KupoCon and to Alex Maine for having me work on these.
