Question: What drew you to illustration/design? Gray: When people started to like my cartoons it seemed like a pleasant and easy way to earn a crust. Question: Do you have any formal design training? Gray: I spent five years studying architecture but then spent my first twenty formative years in advertising as a copywriter and was Creative Director of a couple of agencies - Dewe Rogerson and WCRS where I did BMW ads. Question: Where do you live now & what drew you there? Gray: I live on a hill up Dairy Lane near Henley on Thames. It has a magnificent view. The nearest neighbour is over half a mile away. Question: Where is your studio and can you describe it for me? Gray: I work in a timber shed which used to be a garage but I tarted it up and put a stove in it. Question: Tell us about a favourite project you’ve recently completed. Gray: I designed and built the clock tower on my work shed. The architecture came in handy for that. Question: If you were not a cartoonist, what would you be? Gray: Skint. Question: What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given? Gray: My dad once said, "Take my advice, do what you want".
Question: Do you have a method for dealing with the feeling of having no ideas? Gray: One idea is to have a bacon sandwich. Works for me. Question: If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? Gray: Christina Hendrick's boudoir. Question: Do you have any pets? Gray: I have a black dog called Ralf Ralf Ralf but I call him Ralf for short. I also have a black cat called WMD - short for Weapon of Mouse Destruction. But I call him Bill because he's useless around mice. Question: If you won the lottery what would you do with the money? Gray: Gold plated taps in the kitchen for starters. Caviare and Stolly for breakfast. Truffles for tea. Private jet... silver Ferrari... the usual things. Question: Would you continue to illustrate? Gray: Don't be silly. Question: Which is the best Carry-on in your opinion? Gray: 'Carry on up the Khyber' was certainly the funniest title.
