In Plans We Made Simon (Smoo Comics) Moreton remembers teenage years spent in the suburbs of South East England in the late 1990s. Moreton's quiet, minimal pencil drawings beautifully evoke a nostalgic longing for a time long gone. Simon Moreton is a master of the minimal cartooning wave originated by John Porcellino.
