Del Thorpe has been drawing ever since that time he ruined his mum’s best tablecloth with wax crayons. Most of his formative work can be found in the margins of his old school exercise books. His maths teacher described these misunderstood works as ‘wasting time’. When he left normal school, Del went to art school and drew serious, grown-up things. Soon he decided the grown-up stuff was mostly boring, so went back to drawing silly cartoons and has done ever since.
