Bizarre enquiry and subsequent booking of the year: Could I dress up as and pretend to be Belgian and sketch Paul Gascoigne on top of a double-decker bus, and get interviewed about Wold Cup football - while being filmed for an ad? I was asked to be a "hipster artist", so since that sounds like your everyday Shoreditch wannabe, I more or less wore my everyday gear. Here's me and Gazza waiting for the bus to pick us up. I tried to sketch him several times amidst the hustle & bustle, and couldn't decide on which of his many faces to draw - did the least-worst one on the lower deck while waiting to be called. Throughout the day Paul was fantastic company, full of beans and super-funny, yet also sharp as a pin. Gazza Gazza Hey!
