I hope you’re all enjoying the excellent animated caricature/comedy show Headcases.
It’s the best thing under the heading ‘satire’ I’ve seen in ages. And a worthy successor
to Spitting Image.
Pictured here: Jordan and Peter Andre
You’ve got to split your sides at ‘Mohamed Al Fayed’s World of Conspiracies’ and Prince
Philip as Dick Dastardly out to ‘get Kate Middleton’.
Seems to be based on Mark Reeve’s drawings, but i didn’t recognise any of the voice
talents or production staff, so looks like a brand, spanking new product from a new team.
Makes a refreshing change.
Back to work!

A chance for a little breather between corporate caricaturing (I’m off to Richmond tonight for the penultimate one before Christmas) resulted in some archive sorting. I came across this old photo of me when I was a contestant on the UK Channel Four Television game show Countdown!
As always, the shameless self-promoter, I brought along full colour caricatures of Gyles Brandreth, Carol Vorderman, Ken Bruce and Cathy Hytner plus a black and white one of the legendary chairman, Richard Whiteley.
They were very generous with the time they spent discussing my work and showing the drawings on air, but this was more than twenty years ago, now, so I don’t think anyone would be very impressed with them now!
I won one game and lost the next one to Andy Munday, who was an ex-Krypton Factor contestant, so particularly geared up for the competition! So, at least I got the Shorter Oxford Dictionaries!
