I’m 33 and from near Reading. I have a degree in graphic design and illustration and I lecture at university level in those subjects in Moscow. So I spend most of my time in Russia and my summers in England, balancing being a cartoonist with lecturing. Russia is very weird, but it’s an adventure. My Russian is still very bad and yes, it’s cold (but right now it’s scorching). I have been a cartoonist for about three or four years. I have recently become an uncle.
