Peter Cline is a writer, artist and designer living and working in London.
With a great eye for detail, his playful observations inform a classically influenced yet contemporary, visually arresting aesthetic.
A love of art and newsprint comics from the early 20th century and a knowledge of traditional drawing and printing techniques inform his graphic approach.
His work includes Ocular Anecdote; La Petite Sortie; How to Make Comic Strips – The Modern Way; . . .And The Gatepost; and Sausage, Egg, Beans And Chips
In addition to his own work, Peter runs publishing imprint Otto Press, printing the work of other narrative artists including Eleni Kalorkoti, Daniel Götesson (Ekta), Malarko & Tim Head.
Two new books in production from Henry McCausland & Ed Cheverton will be released later this summer.

Peter Cline: How to Make Comic Strips — The Modern Way
Creating a comic strip adopting traditional techniques, although ostensibly a facile task, is an arduous undertaking typified by long hours hunched over a grubby drawing board.
In this modern world of microwaves, motor cars, silicon chips and underfloor heating, we all need to find ways of improving efficiency and speeding up archaic processes.
This book will provide an invaluable guide to techniques never before seen in the world of comic strips.
You will be given the insights you need to propel your strips out of the dreary pages of some forgotten corner of the marketplace and out into the limelight!
