I have been a full-time cartoonist, illustrator and author since 1984. Prior to that I was a spy. (I wasn’t a very good spy, I drew all over the secret messages and refused to use invisible ink.)
I’m the editorial cartoonist for The Westmorland Gazette newspaper in the Lake District, where I live, work and occasionally rant.
My cartoons and illustrations appear in books, newspapers, websites, films and on the radio – I am Britain’s first radiocartoonist. I drew cartoons for the Rob McLoughlin Breakfast Show on Radio CityTalk. How is it possible to draw cartoons on the radio? Book me for a talk to find out.
I run workshops, teaching the basics of how to draw, develop characters and have fun without all the tricky bits like perspective, accuracy and realism.
My cartoons travel around the world. Whenever possible, I go with them.
