i never thought for a minute that i’d enjoy being an illustrator. for years and years, i avoided anything to do with it. maybe terrified that i
couldn’t draw consistently enough, or to someone else’s liking. always corrected interviews that called me one, because i’d never,
once ever, taken a single job drawing for anyone else.

then my brilliant friend matt asked me to illustrate his first cook-book, my mouth turned to jelly, and the next thing, i’m laying out all these vegetables across my desk, cutting up paper and buying new pens. i spend two weeks in my studio, and when i finally put my head up, i realise
that i loved it.

i’m so proud of matt, and so proud of studio racket for putting it all together so well.
it’s beautiful to hold, & so nice to be a part of it.
