Karl is a children's illustrator from Norwich, Norfolk. He's the illustrator of Rupert the Dinosaur. He wears odd socks. He is fuelled by tea and biscuits (who isn't?). And he loves drawing!
Question 1 : Curry or Chinese?
Chinese! Don't get me wrong; I'd happily eat either in a flash, but there's something about a Chinese meal that just hits the spot. Mmmm, plus sometimes there's enough left for breakfast too!
Question 2 : Studio Ghibli or Pixar?
I've seen very little Studio Ghibli, and what I've seen has been excellent, but Pixar blow my mind every time. The storylines, the characters, the scenery, the research, the production... I love watching the extra bits on the DVDs to see behind the scenes. In my head I think I live in the bright, fun, anything is possible land of Pixar every day. Inspiration overload. I'm a big kid!
Question 3 : Sonic the Hedgehog or Mario?
Mario! I was / am obsessed with Mario (and have got my kids hooked too!). The theme tune is a winner too. Sonic is a close second though... Dr Robotnik was one ugly dude
Question 4 : PC or Mac?
I've got a laptop... I really could do with a Mac, and not just cause winter's on the way. I'll have to say PC for now. It's what I spent my late teenage tears attached to, on MSN messenger and Napster, before the time of Facebook & Twitter. Oh, the days!
Question 5 : Van Gogh or Picasso?
Van Gogh. I went to the VG museum in Amsterdam, saw the paintings and drawings in real life and they blew my mind. The colours he used really speak to me (I'm colourblind) they kinda make me feel that its OK to be different. and use wacky colours. Picasso was pretty darn cool too
