Self Portrait

Peter Gander was born in London and still works there freelance as an Art Director for marketing and ad agencies. He lives in Herne bay, near Whitstable on north Kent's coast. His day job as a creative involves what they call in the trade 'scamping' a form of sketching designed to convey an idea simply and quickly. During his professional career, which spans over 20 years, he lays claim to having re-designed the Monopoly logo to include 'Mr Moneybags' (still there to this day); winning an advertising D&AD Yellow pencil award for Spiller's Dog Food campaign featuring Dougal from The Magic Roundabout and having an award-winning cartoon featured on London's underground as well as having his humorous poetry displayed for Londoner's by Friends of the Earth featured on London's iconic Routemaster buses.
