Gareth Brookes

Gareth Brookes was born in Woking and studied Fine Art at Newcastle University and the Royal College of Art. He started making comics as an amusing antidote to his art practice and within a very short time found they had completely taken over. Since then he has produced a number of self published books as well as being involved with collectives such as The Alternative Press and The Comix Reader. In 2012 he was the winner of the First Graphic Novel Competition, with an extract from his graphic novel The Black Project.
