Description

The Beano / The Dandy – I’ll Never Stop Drawing

Following Art College here in Hartlepool I was employed in the art department of Dundee comic publishers D.C.Thomson, a truly wonderful training environment where I learned ‘on the job’ working on most of their comics.

Becoming freelance in 1974, I have (from necessity!) tackled a huge diversity of jobs including school textbooks, pre school television, children’s storybooks, and model-making for animated TV series. I have stayed with comics, throughout, latterly writing and drawing ‘Jonah’ in ‘Dandy’ and ‘General Jumbo’ for ‘Beano’.

In 2006 I illustrated ‘Time Tram Dundee’, a Heritage Lottery Funded history of Dundee. This involved many local school visits, which I greatly enjoyed and inspired me to become a teacher.

I qualified as a Cert Ed in 2008, initially working with special needs children and teenagers with emotional issues. I also teach in local primary schools, run several drawing groups, including 'Dabble in Art' for the club, and continue as an illustrator.
