Merchant banker Alex Masterley is a greedy, ruthless, arrogant snob. No wonder Peattie & Taylor's daily cartoon strip about him has been a constant hit in Britain’s national newspapers for over 25 years. Few people realise, however, that the duo once also produced a spin-off series about Alex's financial advisers, which published 80 original strips over its three-year run.

Illustrations I've done so far for The Occupied Wall Street Journal are now online, and not just in PDF format. Links to the drawings in Issue #1 and Issue #3. Please poke around the site and read all the articles!
365 Days of Print: Artists Remix the News is year long online kick-starter funded art project. Each month, 6-10 different artists around the world are provided with daily subscriptions to the printed version of a newspaper of their choice. During their month-long residencies they commit to read the paper every morning and then create work in response to their experience of the day's news. They then upload their daily results at either 10:00 a.m. or 10 p.m. EST. I've a little over a week left, but my work to date can be viewed here.
