I love a challenge. Give me a deadline and dare me to do something by that date, and there's a good chance I'll have a crack at it.
A challenging week in which I thought about my time, felt deflated by a naysayer, and got back up again dreaming of cartoons...
I woke up on Thursday with the desire to draw a comic. Quickly. Off the cuff. Straight onto the paper with a pen.
If you're an opera lover, you might have used this train station to visit Glyndebourne. I've driven and cycled past it many times. Not today. Today I stopped.
During the Easter holidays I contributed some drawings to a fundraising project. The drawings will be used in two books, one of which is a children's book of stories and poetry. Proceeds will go to charity.
