I've been a graphic designer for 30 years. Last year I created 3hundredand65. I am not a writer nor am I an artist but somewhere in between there's got to be a place for me.
I'm happiest in a wild place in a second hand book shop or at my drawing board.
Ideas come to life, I can't kill them nor can I hold them all in my head so I write them down or I draw pictures. Sometimes I do both at the same time and that's when it gets exciting.
I love poetry and I could give you a long list (starting with Alice Oswald and Ted Hughes) but I won't. I love anything drawn by Frank Quitely and Kev Walker that's also written by Alan Moore or Grant Morrison. Neil Gaiman is a favourite as is Roger Deakin's nature writing. A truly broad and eclectic taste.
