05/ 07/ 21 - I've decided rather than "host" my artwork in Google Photos like a pleb I should try and look somewhat professional. To this end I've set up a DeviantArt account. I'll continue to add new art here as and when I create it. If you've a DA account yourself, give me a follow and I'll do the same. :D
24/06/21 - New Medium article in which I look at pornstar action figures. Yep, you read that correctly! (FYI, no actual porn in the article). There are Pornstar Action Figures. Why Not Collect Them All?

12/04/21 - My newest article is up on Medium. It looks at how Dr. Frederic Wertham almost destroyed the US comic book industry. How One Man Nearly Killed the Comic Book Industry.
WHO IS THIS JOE PERSON?
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 taught in various schools in the Hunter Valley region of NSW, Australia as an Visual Art teacher until 2016 when I moved to the UK.
In 2006 I started the The Phantom fan site ChronicleChamber.com which continues to this day. Since then I have written for several sites and also continue with my artwork.
I continued as an art teacher until 2018 when I decided to leave teaching for other opportunities. In 2017 I married my amazing English wife and live in Portsmouth, UK.
I'm a huge geek and collector with a strong love for comics, SEGA and their mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, videos games both retro and modern, as well as fantasy and sci-fi.
