about the author

Story first…screw genre. C’mon, how much literary ‘pizza and beer’ can one consume? (I guess a lot) Hello obscurity. #nonconformist.

Gavin expands his options by David Sears on 24 July 2017

Gavin thinks he might be onto a good thing when he approaches Brent for more paintings, but will it all go to plan? Of course not!

Still, Brent makes some money for some awful artwork and Gavin doesn’t have to paint quite so much kindling. Win-win surely…

Sinister men in black! by Jason Renton on 18 July 2017

Hey I’m still here, sorry I didn’t get a chance to write something on the last chapters but loved them and these too!

Mr Eastman is still toying with Gavin and seems to be deliberately insulting his work. When Gavin tries to take control of his art, he his visited by two of Eastman’s henchmen with a warning. Still, Gavin finds a way to stick it to his paymaster/nemesis…

Disgustingly funny… by Rebecca Dyson on 16 July 2017

If you can stomach Gavin’s ‘message’ to Gary Eastman, you’ll see the funny side. And hey, it’s art right?!

I’m still enjoying the characters and the evolving plot, and will be checking out the next installments soon I promise 🙂
