I can’t imagine not being involved in either writing or art. When I am not creating something, I am thinking about what I should create. I am 70 now and think I am just starting to understand what I am trying to do, I hope I work it out soon!

I like telling stories, I like creating people and worlds and situations that people enjoy reading…It always seemed such a magical thing to do – to tell stories that wormed their way into people’s hearts and brains. What better way to spend your life!

You might be a lousy speller, but if you have the gift of being able to create amazing stories you’re more likely to be published than someone who writes well, but has no flair for narrative.

The transition into animation felt quite natural. It’s so thrilling to see your still images and concepts come to life, [but] there’s always pencil to paper in the initial stages of production.

If you do it right, there are lots of things you can do online that tech-savvy students find more appealing than print-based material.
