I spend some time having conversations with the Baby Boomers who sit for me and these are as important to the development of this work as the sketches. With such a wide age group, spanning 18 years, there’s a huge range of experience and history amongst us all. It’s fascinating to listen to those Boomers older than me, the ones who were old enough to take part in the political movements of the 1960s, see the counterculture evolving on the American West Coast, live in Swinging London. These are things I watched on television as a child and it’s a privilege to talk to people who were there.
