I became a professional cartoonist almost by accident when in 1989 whilst doodling I drew a little bald man in braces and carpet slippers and named him Fred. After receiving over 80 rejection letters I was finally offered a place in Midweek, a free magazine given away at London tube stations. This was soon followed by my first book deal and a contract for Fred greeting cards. These proved very popular and within a short period of time were to be seen in all over the place. A range of Fred merchandise followed with a steady succession of books. The cartoons also appeared in the Mail On Sunday for four years.
