"Like a cross between Zippy from Rainbow and The Night of the Living Dead."
I was born in Nottinghamshire. My childhood was a very uncomplicated affair, I spent most of my time riding BMX bikes and playing football.
I didn't like school all that much, but I loved to draw on things. Despite my abysmal A-level results, I earned a place on the Foundation Course at West Notts College. It was like an escape hatch.
I won the student of the year award and applied to study fashion design at St. Martins. Despite knowing nothing about the reputation of the college and its alumni, I got in. I didn't really enjoy making clothes all that much, but I still enjoyed drawing on things!
A few years after I graduated from the MA I began to sell my drawings.
I've worked for Marc by Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Missoni and Hugo Boss. I have designed a range of 'Will Broome for Topshop' t-shirts and designed a dinner service for Wedgwood to celebrate their 250th anniversary.
I have exhibited in London and Paris, and sold to private collectors in New York, Paris, London and Copenhagen. Amongst others, I have been featured in POP magazine, Dazed & Confused, Wallpaper and I-D.
I work in quite a naive way. I like the simple act of drawing, of making a mark. I don't like anything too slick or computer generated. I also work in collage - even when I do this, it looks haphazard.
I'm not sure if I am an illustrator, I think I might be an artist.
I am inspired by lots of things. Normally it's stuff I see on toilet walls and the street when I am riding my bike. I still like the things I liked when I was 11; AC/DC, graphics from the 70's, Spiderman, stickers.
Behind the happy go lucky facade, there is a darkness to my work.
