Steve has worked in the comics industry for over three decades, his career starting at the offices of Marvel UK in 1986. Working his way up from colour separator – a discipline now lost in the mists of Time – to senior editor, colourist and writer, his credits range across a plethora of titles for both Marvel US and UK, from Care Bears to The Knights of Pendragon.

After Marvel, he worked in the UK offices of Tundra and as senior editor at Titan Comics.

Steve is also an illustrator and artist, specialising in creating incredible natural history art, and since departing Titan in 2016, he has set about developing his artistic career.

Meanwhile, he continues to maintain a hand in the comics genre; he is senior editor at Hachette Partworks, working on numerous comics-related collections such as the Judge Dredd Mega Collection, Transformers: The Definitive G1 Collection and various Marvel lines.

Pitched as “Magazine Inspiration for the passionate colored pencil artist”, Colored Pencil published its first issue in January 2011. After just one year, the team were amazed by the outpouring of support from the art community waiting for such a publication. Now entering their ninth year, the magazine is read by tens of thousands all over the world.

The latest issue of Colored Pencil also features winners of the 2020 Colored Pencil Awards, Perfecting the Paper, The Making of Quinn, Getting a Head Start, Studio Tour with Wendy Layne, Peacock Feather Workshop, Inktense Art Gallery, and more.
