One of the most peculiar things about being an illustrator is your inspiration for starting. In my case it was an early BBC TV programme run by Adrian Hill where children were encouraged to draw various subjects and our work was displayed on TV. It was very exciting and people such as myself and Ronnie Wood (now in the Rolling Stones) were hooked on media exposure. As an adult I illustrated the titles of several programmes (including Sir Hugh Greene & Simon Rattle) and have illustrated for the Radio Times since the old black and white days of Robin Jacques and John Minton to it’s present incarnation. I worked as a commercial artist in Cadburys studio in Bournville (where I had to clock in), and on various underground newspapers at University. I also did posters for the rock and folk scene of the period: Burt Jansch was recently reproduced for a CD.
