Lavishly illustrated books on fairy tales started Toby off on a career of drawing. From pictures of worlds and maps peopled by the fabulous he then moved on to ‘big men, both physically and mentally, in tights’- superheroes.
Toby is still faithfully drawing pictures for his family in gratitude for all the patience he has demanded of them. He is also proud of his hirsuteness.
