Jamie Smart remains based in England while he creates energetically violent & slapstick comic books for Slave Labor. The four-issue mini-series Ubu Bubu was collected into a trade paperback, and also received a spin-off entitled Bohda Te.
Some of his previous works include greetings cards, the graphic novel Space Raoul, and the comic strips My Own Genie and Desperate Dan, which feature in the UK children’s comic The Dandy.

Smart has also been working with Cartoon Network, of which he said on his Twitter account that “it’s been a five-year long grind to get shows off the ground. Here’s hoping, one day…”
