Who inspires you the most? Well, this is a very hard question but also a good one! I think it really depends on the day, really. I don’t have any singular idol as such, partly down to bad memory…but I definitely get inspiration from the ones who have found success but also stayed humble. A big one is Paul Gilbert from Racer X. An insanely good virtuoso on guitar but could be mistaken for your next door neighbour. I think that’s a sign of being true to your craft.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Now this is an easy one. Hands down without a doubt being able to stop time. Just think about it, almost every problem can be solved by stopping time – for running away from a fight, getting some extra time in exams, even stealing a hobnob from the newsagent if you want to look at the darker side of things.

If you could join the Mars space trip for life would you and why? No. Because I’m a quiet, slightly selfish artist. I want to see the world we have at the moment! Maybe when I’m older and I think that Earth has done all it can for me, but even then, who the hell would buy my work on Mars? Would we even have money or would I trade my work for a pack of dried beef?

What is your biggest fear? Aha. I’m going to bend the rules here and say two. One fear is an unrealistic but classic fear. Being buried alive.

But the other fear is a possible situation. My main fear in life is fading into the background and leaving no trace or having any impact. Even more so than failure

Who would you love to have dinner with? I assume this is just one person? Because there’s loads but I don’t think I’d have the organisation to host a banquet. Think I’d go for David Mitchell, the conversations would definitely be challenging and I’d learn a lot. He could also instruct me on how to grow an immaculate beard.

Mac or PC? Sigh. Yes I’m an artist and we’re all meant to be Apple crazy, but to be honest Apple as a company gets on my nerves. One day I’ll have to bite the bullet and buy one for the programmes but for now I stand with solidarity for Mr Bill Gates.

What is your favourite charity and why? I would have to say UNICEF. I have to admit I’ve done next to no charity work in my 19 years, but the stuff I have done is for UNICEF. Great charity and makes a real, major change.

Why did you decide to start blogging and why? Well the main reason is to basically order my thoughts. My mind is a jungle with no real structure, at least it feels that way, and I get the added bonus of being able to direct people to my artwork if ever they ask to see it! I’m also a lot, lot, more proficient with typing than talking. So this is a good medium for me. Although who knows? Maybe a vlog will come out of this someday?

What is your favourite TV programme? It would be a tie between Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad. Whenever I’m re-watching one of them I start to think “Hmmmm, maybe I do like this one more”, and then I watch the other one. Rinse and repeat.

What is your go to in the game Rock Paper Scissors? Hmmm, probably rock because it means I don’t have to move my fingers. Also if I disagree with the verdict I’m already in fighting position to argue.

I’m joking I’d never do that, I’d just throw sand in their eyes.

My questions are:

Who, out of anyone not alive any more, would you bring back?

Describe yourself in three verbs.

What’s your favourite thing about your blog?

Why did you get into blogging?

What’s your favourite film and why? If you don’t watch films why not?

What one tip would you give to an absolute beginner blogger?

Name 2 pet hates.

If you were in power, what would be the first law you would pass?

Favourite first and last name and why?

If you could be part of any fictional universe, what would it be?

My nominations are
