While working on the annual I found myself looking again at my old copies of Spitting Image books, which have a very similar feel. The programme was an early influence for me; as a schoolboy I was twice given time off to spend a day at the their headquarters drawing caricatures, in 1992 and then again in 1993. I've got a load of photos somewhere, but here are a few.
Oddly enough, although I don't know him, Roger Law has crossed my path a few times over the years. The only one worth mentioning was at a screening of a Jake Auerbach film about Lucien Freud at the Prince of Wales Drawing School in Shoreditch. Reading his second autobiography recently, I was surprised to see the evening get a mention. I see he's now doing enormous and amazing ceramic work. I'd love to ask him to make me a mug.
