Tom left his degree in Animation with a 2:2, which is fine. However bereft of the facilities of college and armed only with what was at best a useless computer, Tom reached an epiphany, some three years later. He realised that staring blankly at a screen while you waited for the technology work its ever more protracted ‘magic’ was just too tedious, a bit like waiting for Chris Tarant to reveal an answer on Millionaire. Plus his PC had developed the lifespan of a Fruit Fly.
So Tom turned off his computer for the last time and, like many others before him, picked up the closest thing he could find to alleviate the boredom from the chasm of time that opened up in front of him:
A Biro and a scrap of A4.
And an outpouring of visual diarrhoea was unleashed. As Tom himself puts it in a slightly related way:
“I remember in one CDT lesson at school drawing a small picture of a kettle in the corner of my exercise book with my Biro and it looked quite good.”
Anyway since then Tom has turned his hand to illustration. He has produced various pieces for us here at Lazy G, as well as work for the likes of Scroobius Pip, Marmaduke Dando, Woon and King John along with countless gig posters around London. In January 08 Tom produced an installation at The Macbeth Gallery in which he white-wallpapered the entire gallery and invited members of the public to come and scrawl whatever they liked on the walls. Elevating the art of the toilet wall graffiti to gallery status. Tom continues to champion the universal art of the doodle.
