My love of drawing caricatures started early. I remember when I was about 8 years old saying to my dad that I was going to draw his portrait.
After I showed him he said
“you've given me a big nose!!!”
I think it was at that moment that I knew where my career lay.
Leaving school at 16 I went straight in to working for Barclays Bank. After three years the Bank and I mutually agreed that my future lay elsewhere. Two more years of office jobs and one day I came home and announced to my parents that I was now a freelance cartoonist.
“What qualifications do you need for that?” my mum asked.
“absolutely none” I replied!
