From the age of 11 my one aim in life was to be a cartoonist, so when I was 14, I started calling on the Editor of the Express & Star ( my local paperin Scotland ) with a batch of cartoons every week. After a year he offered to take me on to the paper as an apprentice for 6 years to his resident cartoonist, and at 15 I had my first cartoon published in the Express & Star. At 21 I became a fully fledged cartoonist and started submitting cartoons to other publications and my first acceptance was from a small magazine called Razzle. I took this as an omen and left the Express & Star and in 1953 arrived in London and found an agent. But it was tough at first and at one point I had to pawn almost everything I owned, even my overcoat in the middle of winter! Slowly sales started to improve and after selling a few cartoons to various magazines the Daily Herald took me on for a pocket cartoon every other day. Eventually, I left the Herald and set up on my own and things just took off from there. At one stage I was drawing around the clock to fulfill commissions.
I take it a little easier now but I am still very busy, drawing almost every day.
