Larry and Agatha

Agatha's Men is a graphic novel which  deals with sexual taboos and the subjugation of women in a short and sordid  tale. The reader is introduced to Larry, a lonely guy who longs to meet his fantasy woman. The story follows his misadventures  with Agatha, the woman of his desire.

  • I am an artist and illustrator  based in London. 

    Whilst observing the eccentricities of the marginalised , I am informed by my own imagination, experience and the documentary genre. 

    My practice employs drawing, collage, printmaking and book works. I am concerned with narrative as well as details in mark making and production.

    Addressing current issues in society, my most recent work explores the objectification of women.
