Books, cartoons & wrestling: a belated update

It's been a long old while since I've updated this feed. It probably looks like I haven't been up to much. I wouldn't blame you for thinking that. If I were you, I'd probably think: 'look at him, banging on all last year and now he's got no work and he's quiet'. You only sing when you're winning and so on.

That's the thing with long term projects. Unlike monthly or quarterly magazines, where you've something to show every few weeks, you can go half a year with it looking (from the outside at least) like you've been sat on your arse playing computer games and eating crisps. When in reality that's only half the truth.

For most of 2017 I've been working on two pretty exciting projects that I still can't say that much about. The first is a pilot for an adult animated series about the weird world of professional wrestling. Just last week esteemed producer James Boyle from Park Road Pictures joined the project and we're now in the process of pitching to studios and broadcasters. I've no idea if it'll take off, but working on a cartoon is a boyhood dream of mine and so even just getting to this stage has been boss-level fun.

I'm also being helped by literary agent Ed Wilson from Johnson & Alcock on a book about masculinity in the modern world. Working titled 'What is Man' it's essentially looking at our fractured, diverse masculine identity and asking if really we're all just a bunch of lost little boys. This really will be a loooooong term project, so we'll see what happens.

Between those jobs and some fun bits for Brighton creative agency Net Natives (which due to NDAs I can't post) I've been pretty much out in the cold when it comes to magazine work that I can show off here. Not that you care, I'm sure, but still... just thought I'd let you know. Anyway, that's enough from me. Do say hello if you read this. It gets lonely working solo in my little office.
