A Utopian Moment

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women


Somebody asked me where the name “Utopia Moment” came from. It’s something I made up, when I was in a Brian Eno type of mood (he likes to give enigmatic titles to his pieces). I think it refers to the instant when everything feels perfect; but it’s so fleeting it’s hard to grab onto and is immediately past. Also, the name has a nice assonance.


I’m drawing a comics page, which is always a lot of work, so haven’t had time for really ambitious drawings. These are the usual inane odds and ends from my current book.


This is Orpah (sic), a character in some new stories I’m doing!


The guy on the right was drawn from life in the subway station as the train pulled in. Ha ha! I mean on the left!
