I wasn’t an overnight suc­cess – there was lots of fail­ure and anx­i­ety along the way. I stud­ied il­lus­tra­tion, but left af­ter a year and was at a low ebb, so started say­ing yes to ev­ery­thing. I worked for Damien Hirst, paint­ing his spot paint­ings. I even set up a lamp­shade busi­ness. It was al­most im­pos­si­ble to turn a profit, and we didn’t! I used the de­sign on this one to rep­re­sent the sea in my first Char­lie And Lola book.
