About Me

Hello! As I am hopeless at waxing lyrical about me, here’s a list:

  • I am:
    • a writer
    • an illustrator
    • a motion graphics thingy
    • a podcaster
    • a food person (not a foodie, eugh)
    • into world domination
  • Since the end of the last century, I have lived in Portugal, living a Portuguese life, currently in that Lisbon. This involves much:
    • coffee
    • cheese
    • laughing at eggs
    • farinheira
    • salt cod
    • speaking Portuguese, my second favourite language
  • I grew up in North Devon, studied illustration in Cambridge (at what is now Anglia Ruskin) and lived and worked in London for most of the 90s.
  • digitally speaking, I mostly use:
    • Corel Painter
    • After Effects
    • Illustrator
    • Photoshop
    • InDesign
    • Anime Studio
  • analogically speaking, I use:
    • almost anything but
    • mostly indian ink and watercolours
  • I have written three books, published in Portugal, all involve food.
  • I am the slightly less bearded half of Jürgen (two slightly daft people doing not so daft projects). This includes books, cartoons, and now podcasts.
  • I write a column on a newspaper in two languages, usually Portuguese and English
  • It is very unlikely that I would consider living anywhere other than Portugal
  • It’s probably the best country in the world. Mostly.
  • I like bulleted lists
