I used to draw cartoons of my teachers which used to get passed around the class and I'd always wind up getting caught which often meant detention. But they sometimes said the drawings were good!
How did you stop getting bored in the holidays?
I used to go to a dude ranch which is when you spend your holiday on a ranch so I became a bit of a cowboy. And I used to draw a lot - particularly cowboys and horses!
