Dave Anderson makes award-winning films and draws things too. And he's funny. What a guy.
Hey there Dave. I have a bad cough. How are you?
Nothing out of the ordinary about my functions today. I think I can describe my condition as 'ambient'. Sorry to hear about your cough. Try soda-streaming your Benylin - sickness is no reason not to celebrate.
Have you ever had a sexy dream about one of your charactersin your drawings?
If you think I dream of one of my characters leaping off the page and coaxing me into their seedy cartoon world to feel me up, just like in that A-Ha video for 'Take On Me', then I'd say, 'really! what a question!'... right up until I wake up in their cartoon flat next Sunday morning with a hangover and can't find my trousers.
What connection do you have to blood sausages?
I wanted to give the name of my business a chic, continental whiff about it and unfortunately 'Rebecca Loos' was already taken. Although she did yank off a pig on TV.
Have you ever... ever felt like this? Have strange things happened? Are you going 'round the twist?
I'm university educated. I didn't spend three years loudly remembering the theme tune to Button Moon or whether Zack out of Saved by the Bell was dead or not to be caught out here. Can't remember what degree I got though.
Where can we see more of your work?
Lazarides currently has a print of mine up in their Outsiders Gallery in Soho, a lovely religious piece centred around the reverend Brian Blessed. A little further away in now 'Olympian' Hackney Wick, the Smokehouse Gallery is also showing a canvas that takes a 'wry look' at that most respected of phenomena, the advertising industry. Bloodsausage will, however, take you to the sheer depths.
