I was the kid in school who got ‘done’ by Miss for drawing cartoons instead of Proper Art in class.
I couldn’t help it then, and, to be honest, nothing’s changed.
I’ve been a milkman’s gopher, a graphic designer, got a degree in weaving and worked at Woolies. Meanwhile, I’ve always been drawn to drawing: inspired by Bob Godfrey, Ronald Searle and Quentin Blake, the Pink Panther, traditional sign writing and sweetie wrappers.
Now over 20 years a freelance illustrator, I’m still noodling and doodling - happy to hand-letter a wedding reading or a wall, paint British Birds or beer bottles, or ink in aliens and armadillos.
