I’m really pleased with this. I think Michal has done such a great job on the video.

The location is my studio at the Fishermen’s Chapel in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, along with the hallway (note the church umbrella) and the waterfront in Old Leigh, just across the railway tracks from the church.

The video (in case you’re somewhere you can’t watch it) is 3 minutes long and shows me drawing, talking about my work, including how I started and my drawing process. Also there is a shot of carrying tea. I am a bit nervous when talking, but I’m hoping you won’t notice that…

Included in the video is a cartoon that hasn’t appeared anywhere yet! Watch this space.

If you could share this video then that would make me very happy.

A huge thank you to Michal for doing this. You can see more of Michal’s work, including other interviews with people doing creative jobs, at Meehow Media.

  1. Dave, I am a big fan of your cartoons. My wife, a recently retired Anglican priest, takes the Church Times; and we are regulars at Greenbelt where I am an Angel and volunteer at the Angels venue. What an interesting challenge you will have drawing a cartoon map of a completely new site!

    But my main reason for commenting is that I am amazed to learn that you work in a building which as a child I knew as New Road Methodist Church. My father was a Methodist local preacher and he led worship there regularly usually travelling from our home in Benfleet by train. As a trainee local preacher in the early 1970s I also led worship there at least once.

  2. Great video, wow, thanks. Cheered me up. But I also feel thoroughly ashamed, here I am, feeling that all that I have do do is towering over me, and I’ve got to get out, so off I go to the internet for a bit of light procrastination – and I find that act is enshrined in a cartoon in the middle of the video! Thanks, I now feel better able to get on with what I have to do.
