I draw inspiration from the things I grew up with as a child classic cartoons, television shows, music, comics, retro computer games and toys. I have a fascination for many aspects of popular culture along with an interest in both history and science and the way they are presented in education.
I also have a devotion for classic cinema particular the comedies of Laurel and Hardy and The Marx Brothers along with vintage horror and science fiction ranging from the Gothic horrors of the 1930 – 40’s to the atomic and “B” movies of the 1950’s. Everything produced by the Hammer Horror studios and the cult classic horror films of the 1980’s tapering off at the end of the 1990’s.
If it features an ancient castle, wronged scientist, robots, mutants, dinosaurs, giant insects or alien invasions it has my undivided attention, these along with the other elements I mentioned often feature in my work, incorporating a sense of fun.
