He turned freelance in 1985 and almost immediately his work started winning awards.
He created the idea of Rutger Hauer as the Guinness man just before he left O&M, and the idea was hijacked by another creative who won a D&AD Gold Pencil for it. Bah humbug.

His brother and his brother's partner, former TV presenters Simon Pascoe and Caitlin Easterby, are the prime movers behind Red Earth Environmental Art, a unique and cutting edge fine art collective. Neice Claire, Ceejay designs, is a freelance artist specialising in dog portraits.
