It’s a special interview today because tomorrow Arthur is going to be turning an enormous seven years old so I decided to ask him a few questions. (I resisted asking ‘How did you get so big so fast?’ because I don’t think he’d have an answer that was satisfying.)

Making things and doing art. I’m an Art Ninja called Artie!
