"A touch of Ronald Searle"
Tom loves splashing ink about and drawing with his dip pen. It's like using an old feather quill. If you would like to give it a go yourself, Tom drew a step-by-step guide called 'How to make a Quill Pen' for the Guardian for the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. Click on the image below to create a quill ready to make your own inky mess - Tom can't think of anything better. You can also find out about 'The Boy and the Globe', a book all about the Bard by Tony Bradman and illustrated by Tom.
