I've worked as a sports illustrator for over 20 years. Mostly my stuff has appeared in The Guardian and When Saturday Comes and I've produced a varied body of work that includes caricature, tactical diagrams, editorial illustration, pocket cartoons and spoof graphics.
I also paint in acrylics - I am what is generally known as a new wave pop folk artist. Usually I work by sitting at a desk with my head in my hands staring at the wall for several weeks, before jumping up and doing a painting in a few minutes. After which I kiss it lovingly - though only when it's dry.
Although I'm now older than John Lennon was when he died, and Dino Zoff was when he collected a World Cup winner's medal, I like to think of myself as an emerging artist. I'm just emerging in slow motion.
