We are very happy to announce that our latest Attending Professional and exhibiting artist to confirm for ICE Brighton is the incredibly talented writer, artists and creator of legendary indy comic Strangehaven… Gary Spencer Millidge.
Born in East London in 1961, Millidge attended Southend Art School and was actively involved in UK comics fandom in the 1970s and 1980s.
He played in various rock bands but hung up his bass to concentrate on writing and illustrating his acclaimed and award-winning Strangehaven comic book series (self-published between 1995 and 2006). Millidge contributed to (and published) Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman and has worked for Bongo, Caliber and more recently has provided cover art for Titan Comics.
He’s written two how-to-draw books (in collaboration with James McKay) Draw Fantasy Figures and Draw Dragons, the coffee table tome Comic Book Design and the visual biography Alan Moore: Storyteller.
Strangehaven resumed serialisation in Soaring Penguin’s Meanwhile… anthology in 2014 and Millidge aims to finally complete the series in 2018.
Millidge resides in a big, dusty ol’ house in Leigh-on-Sea in the South East of England with the ghosts of his beloved dogs Billy and Babs
