Through appropriating the semiotic language of contemporary graphic novels into a narrative which combines drawing, painting and installation these works seek to celebrate the human and the marks we make on the world from the architecture of a skyline to the tagging on a storefront. It is made in celebration of the local, the small-scale, the eccentric and the down-right ordinary. It is a search for the moments which contain a multitude of possibilities for examining the humour of the everyday.
