I really enjoy drawing hands. Next to the eyes, they're the most expressive part of our bodies. Not only are they fun to draw, but no matter where you go you've always got reference to draw from. I used to find them intimidating and complex, but I spent several months in life drawing concentrating on hands, and after a while it started to click. I learned a lot from studying Mort Drucker, Jack Davis and Milt Kahl, three guys who have their cartoon hands grounded in solid anatomy. More recently I've been heavily inspired by Jamie Hewlett's Gorillaz (me and a lot of artists) and my pal Doug TenNapel's graphic novel work.
