Idea notebook, wooden pencil box (made when I was 11 - knew it would eventually come in handy!), paper, mechanical pencil, rubber, ipad for image references and coffee. Lots of coffee.
A rare example of a cartoon idea that popped into my head fully formed. Published in the current issue of The Spectator.
Here's a canvas I did for the upcoming Willow Foundation charity auction 'Stars on Canvas'. As well as many great cartoonists and illustrators, there are international stars from sport, music and entertainment taking part too.

This month's Reader's Digest 'Beat the Cartoonist' caption contest features another one of my efforts.
My first ever published cartoon was about the political inquiry into BSE or mad cow disease and appeared in Private Eye - this is it. It later made the Private Eye annual too. Not a bad outcome for a first attempt.
Cartoon shortlisted for the Michael Heath Award for Cartooning in The Spectator.
The theme was 'Man in Motion.'
This month's Reader's Digest 'Beat the Cartoonist' caption contest features one of my efforts. One lucky winner will win a £100 and a print of this cartoon. Does life get much better than this?
I joined other Eye cartoonists as we gathered to celebrate the launch of 'Private Eye - A Cartoon History'. Edited by cartoonist Nick Newman, this wonderfully thick book celebrates five decades of some of the best cartoons from the pages of Private Eye.
Here we all are with Eye editor Ian Hislop and Nick Newman centre.
