The drawing years: 1972 – 1988 Born with a graphite centre – drew logos instead of playing with toys like normal children – bombed out of school and art because Graphic Design – aka Graffiti is NOT an artistic medium (dicks) and went on to practice on the walls of middle England (Apart from the cheeky tag mainly in Leighton Buzzard if I'm honest).

The music years: 1988 -1997 Acid – Rave – Drum and Bass – House – Breaks – dropped – DJ'd – promoted – produced – presented.

The alcohol years: 1997 – 2000 Ran, drank in and owned bars in London, Salisbury and Aylesbury. If I remember…

The drawing years (again) 2000 – present: Back to design full time. Although only started illustrating seriously a couple of years ago. Got Broadband. Spent less than 40% of my time looking at porn and was able to fit in some drawing in the mean time. Worked as senior creative and now freelancing (illustrator) and running own design company (graphic design).
2008 – the future: Got first rocket car – broke first rocket car.

Influences: The happy and disturbed.
