In December 2018 I appeared on Channel 4's satirical comedy series Ministry of Justice, presented by Heydon Prowse and Jolyon Rubinstein.

I was asked to illustrate the children's book Nicky the Naughty Knife, a heartwarming tale about 'good weapons' and 'bad weapons'. The show exposed the hypocrisy within the weapons industry and raised questions around what we teach children about serious subjects like this. 

 

It was pretty surreal seeing my characters come to life and stage a book launch outside the Department of Trade - and my local bookshop!
