Welcome to my media page

Broadcasting experiences are always entertaining!
I've drawn live and had artwork featured on BBC 2's Autumnwatch Unsprung and the Craft Channel on a number of occassions.
Interviews on local radio are nice to do - usually featuring some poetry.
I've even been featured in Guinea Pig Magazine (no I didnt know there was one either!)

Here I am on one of the Craft Channel sets promoting a card craft CDROM.
I was cartooning pets from photos emailed in by viewers while live on air - no pressure!

Here are some pieces that were drawn live on the Create and craft shows.

As well as drawing live on Autmnwatch in 2010 I also produced
caricatures of the presenters which were featured in 2011.
Chris packham was a treat to caricature!

Bill Oddie emailed;
"At last! A cartoon version of me that doesn't look like
a cross between David Bellamy and a beetroot.
Thanks so much. I am indeed flattered
All the best, BILL ODDIE."

Martin Hughes Games seemed unsure about his likeness
but the studio audience disagreed! The badgers look OK though I think?
