It’s frustrating when you spy yet another story about a London landlord renting out a tiny shed or outhouse, marketing it as an artisan apartment and charging top dollar. How do they get away with it? More importantly, how do *you*?
Luckily, my new book, ‘Batsu Living’, shows you how, helping you maximise the earning potential of your property by transforming it’s ‘challenge’ zones – the space under the floorboards, the airing cupboard, that bit down the side of the fridge – into bespoke modern rentables.
Each plan is a unique living opportunity for the forward thinking tenant, and a fantastic source of creative income for you!
After a successful first run at Glasgow Comic Con ’16, a second printing is in the works, hopefully within the next few months. Watch this (tiny, rentable) space!
Making up stalls is decent fun, even – especially – when it’s beaming down with rain.

Being Entirely Unsure how I intend to vote in Scotland’s upcoming Independence referendum conveniently means not having to win over others with reasoned and well-thought out argument, a field in which i am not skilled. Still, while the above ‘arguments’ For or Against are entirely made up, they’re also probably not, in that they come from a place. My bumper folder of holiday worries, maybe? Passes the time.
Much of The Great Spectrum of Criminality goes unfictionalised. Shame, really. Stealing Broadband, popping a hand up a vending machine, jimmying manholes, car tipping …the world of small crime, shadow crime, and the guilt, hubris and paranoia that fuel and cripple it’s denizens , is vast and bountiful.
Laying the roots of Lt. Taylor’s final night (an idea I’d drawn out a while ago) meant working up a few of the lighter-weight unlawfuls. Fun stuff, and it seemed a shame to just leave them lying on a page somewhere, criminal even (yes I did). So I worded them, even coloured them (yes I did). Look on, and lose forever a small, largely inconsequential amount of the peace of mind you will probably actually get back quite quickly.
You think something’s funny in your head, right? So you develop it, pencil it, it ends up all earnest and sincere. What do you do?
Perhaps you scare up the background material you’d developed when at the peak of your mania, commit it to a layout – drawn and written – and pencil that too, before also digitally inking, shading and wording the thing? The you (obviously) lay each page onto one side of an A3 sheet of paper, just so, so that it folds open like a comic. Doing all that enables you to then pop the original ‘something funny’ pencil on the OTHER side of the A3, making it like a poster-comic that contextualises (and legitimises) the whole endeavour.
If you’re a complete fruitcake. Good job I steer well clear of that kind of stunt.
