Many of the characters emerged from a particulary stupid hangover the first time I visited Japan, it was when we did the Where is Silas? group exhibition in Tokyo. The day after the private view the artists were asked to do a book signing. This went on for hours and I began to draw food based characters on people’s book and posters. This evolved in my subconscious as an almost parallel universe, restricted in palette and capable of incorporating many of my own interests in pop culture, food surrealism and mindless violence.
