London-based cartoonist Sean has been making and self publishing comics for eleven years and is a regular face at comic conventions in the UK and overseas. He’s also been involved with collectives and was a founding member of London Underground Comics, and organised exhibitions with We Are Words And Pictures.

Over the years he’s produced numerous marvellous mini comics and books for his Phatcomics imprint, including acclaimed titles such as Ed, Twelve Hour Shift and Dark Matters.

Away from self published titles he’s working on Necessary Monsters (First comics), strips for the excellent Off Life comic newspaper and has drawn a back up strip for indy smash Phonogram published by Image.


His exhibition is on now and runs until 23rd June 2014. The exhibition will be part of the Crouch End Festival.

“I will be in the venue doing some live sketching and selling comics,” Sean tells us. “It would be great to see you there.”
