Wistful and poetical images of a sane man in an insane world.

I have been cartooning for over two decades. Its an addiction - like drugs, sex or chocolate. I still think its amazing how a small, simple humourous drawing with an idea can both make us laugh and think of things in a new way. A perverse addiction? Maybe. Cartooning is a subltle but cruel mistress.

The profession seems to promise glory and riches, yet there are many casualties who end up broke, alone and depressed. Still, the big-hearted clowns that make up the breed calling themselves cartoonists have made countless people laugh along the way. And I guess that's a more noble and worthy profession than many I could name.

I would like to think that I too, in my own small way, have contributed to the laughter quotient of Planet Earth. A brief biog... I was born in New Zealand in 1962. In 1987 I moved to the UK, shortly thereafter my first cartoon was published here (which, incidentally, was on the front cover of Punch, no less). I have had many cartoons published in Punch, Private Eye, The Spectator and Playboy USA, amongst other magazines. I have had several books published and truck-loads of greetings cards. My main love is the humble, single panel gag cartoon.

My influences are the New Yorker cartoonists, especially Chas Addams, and Saul Steinberg. I also have a soft spot fot Michael Leunig, cartoonist for The Australian. Gary Larson is also a big favorite.
