G’day. I’m Joe. Thanks for stopping by my portfolio.
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. Following on from this, I earned my Masters of Teaching, Secondary in 2011 and taught at various schools in both Australia and England, specialising as an Visual Art teacher. I left teaching in 2018 and am still looking for that perfect gig.
In 2006 I started the The Phantom fan site ChronicleChamber.com, 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 Ghostbusters, Doctor Who, The Matrix and Back To the Future.

Case in point, the cover image for this post. It’s actually a cropped version of the cover for Fantomen 9/2018, Sweden’s The Phantom comic […]
Phantom 2040 Archive Moved to MediaWiki
One of my passion projects, the Phantom 2040 Archive which, as the name probably gave away, aims to archive all aspects of the brilliant Phantom 2040 animated series, has been moved to a new home – MediaWiki. Unfortunately, the service I had been using to host the Archive, which was based upon Notion was proving […]
Easier Access to Medium Articles
Over on the Writing page, I’ve decided to list each of my individual Medium articles rather than simply linking to my profile there. Hopefully this will make it easier to access each article and to see exactly what is available. TTFN
The move to a new host is finally complete. It was a bit more painful than I thought it was going to be, but it was necessary as my previous host had fallen behind what is needed to keep WordPress running and said they had no intention of updating. Anyway, thanks for baring with me […]
