10 years at the Guide.
This month marks the 10th anniversary of my first Guardian Guide cover. It was a REALLY big deal getting my first cover (top left) and the buzz has never worn off. I've had around 25 covers in the past 10 years and these are some of my favourites. Nothing matches the feeling of being out and about on a Saturday and seeing people reading the Guide with my illustration on the cover. As well as the covers I've drawn illustrations for over 350 Hard Sell columns, had the cover to the Guardian Glastonbury Guide (spotted around the neck of John Peel, Paul McCartney and, er, Badly Drawn Boy) and provided icons for the Guide website. It's been an absolute blast and I've worked with some really great people. Long make it continue. TEN years! Where does the time go?!
