He later went on to open caricature concessions on Blackpool's 'Central Pier' and 'Pleasure Beach', the 'Trafford Centre Mall' in Manchester and Alton Towers. During this time he estimates the number of caricatures completed from live sittings to be in excess of 50,000. He has also worked as a character designer for the Hong Kong based C.I.M. International and remains a member of the National Caricature Network in the USA, a body he joined in 1996. 'My art is mainly humorous figurative paintings of people interacting,' he said. 'Naturally this has its foundations in my lifelong dedication to portraiture, caricature, humorous illustration and character design.'
