Portfolio for writer and artist Joe Douglas



Self-promotion always feels a bit weird to me, but I thought it would be good to have a place to share the things I've worked on.

My life-long interest in drawing and art lead to me studying it all through school and into University, achieving my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art in 2008, during which time I exhibited in several art shows. Following on from this, I earned my Masters of Teaching, Secondary in 2011. I have taught at various schools in both Australia and England, specialising as an Visual Art teacher. I left teaching in 2018 to explore other career options. I now work at the University of Portsmouth as part of their Quality Assurance, Academic Standards and Partnerships team.

In 2006 I started the The Phantom fan site, which continues to this day. Since then I have written for/built several sites and continue with my artwork.

I'm a huge geek and collector with a strong love for comics, SEGA and their mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, as well as the fantasy writings of Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Branden Sanderson and sci-fi such as Doctor Who, The Matrix and Back To the Future. My favourite film is the original Ghostbusters!
