I have a shop where I sell some  of my screenprints, comics, bags and other things – but if there’s ever a picture you’re interested in that isn’t there please do get in touch.

SOMA in Bristol sell some of my small screenprints and Children’s Book Illustration (in Bedford and online) have some screenprints from The Girl with the Parrot on her Head.
