What artists do you admire right now?
Françoise Mouly is spear heading a publication called RESIST, when she is not working as an editor for the New Yorker. I'm a fan of her and her team of fighting artists.
Which piece of art you've created is your favourite, and why?
I love the piece: Bruce is frustrated by Vivian's indifference to housework, the eye contact between the two characters still makes me smile.
Everyone should know about
How to find old books in strange towns. I've spent the last year traveling and learning where all the collage materials live.

The presence of art in our homes reminds us that although we live in a box we don't have to stay inside one.
