Todd has been bringing creatures to life on stage and screen for many years.
At least that’s what he claims – really he just hangs around Pinewood studios with a felt pen. Then he wrestles any passing film star to the ground and draws dots on them, like this:
I did a little rough, then a big pencil drawing. I decided not to have the birds on wires in the end as it made it look like they were captured and not puppets; even though Todd is a serial celebrity dotter, you certainly won’t find him oppressing common warblers.
The gateway features a design for a clock I made about 20 years ago – I never got round to putting the mechanism in it, but it has made an excellent kettle rest.
