What was your favourite cartoon character?
Toad from The Wind In The Willows

Who was your favourite teacher and why?
My high school art teacher was the best in the world

What was your favourite book?
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Who was your hero/heroine?
Batman. I loved all the gimmicks, like his car

What did your school report say?
Well I was a straight-A art student so I always got a good report there!

What was your worst-ever punishment?
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!
