After working in the corporate graphic design industry for 8 years he quit his unfulfilling job at the end of 2011 to focus on his true passion, drawing cartoons.

    Comments about Dream the Impossible Dream:

    This book/comic is good in terms of encouraging readers to do something in life to not be bored and to work to make this temporary world a little better. However, if you're not doing/feeling well then maybe just look into Jesus's message and the Holy Bible and whether you're sinning repetitively - that's what will really hold you up in this life. I'd prefer to see a stronger Christian focus in the comics as well. Just match the world news to The Book of Revelation and the book Paradise Lost. Just forget this world, it's fading away.

        Comments about Dream the Impossible Dream:

        Read this excellent comic book and Gav's first book too to crush any negativity in your life/surroundings (not from God), focus on the positives, love, compassion, peace and grace around you, and be grateful for what God has given you compared with others. The last comic is my favourite!

          Comments about Dream the Impossible Dream:

          Gav has put together an intriguing mix of quotations and illustrations. I had heard and read most of the quotes in the book, but the illustrations added another dimension. At times, it triggered a new way of looking at things.
