So yesterday was a busy day! After Rex Features got in touch with me, I was featured on the both Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph, for my map!
Here’s what readers are saying:
"how did this take hundreds of hours? its not even that good. if it had said 10 hours maybe even 5 hours, i’d still think that was a bit long"
"why is this load of sh… in the news?? i,ve got a 5yr old grandchild that can do better"
"Well he’s got the publicity he was obviously after! Having first seen the drawings I thought what a fantastic 10 or 12 year old - found out he was 23 and a Graphic artist! - Drawings are great all the same but very juvenile in design."

"My child drew a picture of a dinosaur wearing a cowboy hat. Far more interesting. ‘Artist’ is not a simile for ‘Idiot’"
"Its a shame he didn’t put his 100 hours to better use like our heroes in Afghanistan and Iraq or our nurses working 72 hour shifts in the NHS. They would love nothing better than to eat an ice cream. Instead they are working to make people like David’s lives better and he doesn’t even look grateful in his picture. Broken Britain.”
"Its a doodle… so what? I mean anyone can draw this given enough time. Like the quip on the back of a tshirt that says "I’m with Wally"… so we know where wally is. This is where the fun is, in the detail. But its nothing that I or most others couldn’t do…. and in 6 months thats a lot of forgone earnings.."
