drawing the house with chicken legs

One of the hardest things about getting older is that, when I go to parties celebrating creative achievements, hardly any of my friends actually want to get together to make stuff; we stand around and chat and hold drink glasses and nibble at canapés. Nothing wrong at all with that, but I miss everyone sitting around a table at the pub and drawing and laughing at what we've drawn. Luckily one of my friends is still totally up for coming to a party, sitting on the floor and drawing with me.

Here's @CFcomiX, who I met briefly four years ago when Philip Reeve and I were doing our Pugs of the Frozen North events up in Kendal for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival. He's a member of our @StudioTeaBreak drawing challenge group on Twitter (with his account overseen by his mum) and for years, he's managed to meet almost every single challenge!
