Not lengthy after I began drawing Good Tickle Brian, Lisa Peter, then working with the schooling division on the Shakespeare Birthplace Belief in Stratford-upon-Avon, contacted me and requested to fee some illustrations for SBT academic handouts. This was the primary huge piece of exterior validation I acquired from the Shakespeare world, and the primary time I believed “wow… perhaps this silly little comedian I am drawing has some worth past simply amusing myself”. At the moment you’ll find my stick figures throughout varied SBT educating sources. Having the ability to go to Stratford in 2019 and have Lisa and her colleague, the wonderful Cait Fannin-Peel, present me round was a dream come true. I nonetheless keep in mind each little bit of it vividly.
