In a new occasional feature, I will be posting cartoons and caricatures that have been drawn of me by other people. As I circulate in a wide European circle of cartoonists have collected a lot of these unique pieces of artwork and each of them bring back fond memories.
Here’s a birthday present from Guy Carter – a superb cartoon strip celebrating my contribution to the world of comedy:

Amazingly, it is already four years since I was hired to entertain our Olympic athletes at the coming home party after the Games in Athens in 2004.
It was an exhilarating event held in the toy store, Hamleys, in London. Big names such as Tim Henman, Kelly Holmes and Paula Radcliffe were absent, but I had the honour meeting many of the events top rowers, yachtswomen and Amir Khan, the champion boxing prodigy.
My research team is still out there trying to hunt down the name of this Olympic runner! Do check back later!

The website has been receiving a lick of cyberpaint and I’ve adorned it with a few bells and whistles to make it even more attractive to visitors. You can now sign up for a monthly e-newsletter which I will be sending out to a select list and you can also print off my famous Million Pound Notes for your own use! (Great fun handing it over in the supermarket to over-worked, harassed check out assistants!)
Here's an image grab of the website's front page
The whole website will soon be revamped and there will be competitions to win free caricatures!
Keep coming back and recommend it to your friends!

The life of a cartoonist can busy. The mere absence of new blog posts is not an indication of stagnant torpor. On the contrary, it is usually sign that ‘real life’ has occupied my time virtually twenty-four hours a day. Here’s a list of things I have been doing:
• About 20 live caricaturing jobs (no photos this time!)
• Twelve studio caricature commissions from photos
Caricature of Channel 4 Director
• Attending a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace!
Kathryn and I in the garden at Buckingham Palace
Rolf Harris, The New Seekers and me singing "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" at The Buckingham Palace Garden Party!
• Organising and running The London Writers’ Group
• Attending The Entertainment Club
• Random meetings with friends old and new (4)
• Preparing to illustrate a poetry book for Adrian Brown
• A week’s holiday on the Isle of Wight
Chatting to a giant pirate on the Isle of Wight!
• Writing up an idea for a sitcom
• Learning to play the drums
• And, oh! Lots of other things!
