His art studies in Hungary were interrupted by the Soviet takeover of that country in 1956. Coming to the UK without the language but with a love of the tradition of illustration here, he went to Farnham School of Art and then the Royal College of Art. His subsequent career has recognised and rewarded, and as an illustrator, he has been prolific. He is that rare artist who allows himself to be filmed while drawing. Viewers of Time Team will be used to his reconstructions of the original site, and be astonished by his facility at loading lines on paper, registering shadow and smoke with consummate ease. His wife Glenys who he met the RCA is also an illustrator of books.
