Writing

Writing in various forms has always formed a strong part of my practice. Illustration is a meeting point of words and images, and it is one of my great joys to explore the expression of ideas jointly through combinations of writing and drawing.

Below is a selective collection of my writings. Please get in touch with any collaboration, commissioning or publishing queries.

Academic Writing

My dissertation project explored the myth of "the farm" in children's books and the ways it is used, consciously and unconsciously, to prop up systems of violence against other animals. It was published as a paper by Animals and Society Institute's journal Sloth.

Critically Vegan

I co-author and illustrate for Critically Vegan, a blog exploring ideas about consistent anti-oppression advocacy.

We have published Ruminations, a selection of essays, poetry and illustrations from the blog, available in my shop.

We're also on Twitter and Instagram as @criticallyvegan.
