Mr Bingo is an illustrator, animator and graphic designer, living and working in London. He describes himself as having a "slightly smaller than average head and girl's arms," plus "the same haircut as his mum". He includes amongst his influences "...the local ASDA supermarket, thick humans, fat humans, dogs who wear clothes, the British abroad, overheard conversations and juvenile graffiti."

His professional career started with character and background designs for the BBC Three animated TV series Monkey Dust. His client list has grown to include notables such as Nike, Virgin, Converse, Absolut and MTV.

He regularly produces work for the Financial Times and The Guardian newspapers, and has featured in magazines as diverse as Bearded, Dazed and Confused, WIRED, Esquire and GQ, while his art has also been featured in Creative Review and Icon magazines.

In 2006 and 2007, he provided the covers for the two QI books based on the comedy panel quiz fronted by Stephen Fry. The Book of General Ignorance and The Book of Animal Ignorance are both published by Faber and Faber.

Mr Bingo will talk about the huge span of his work, from the Washington Post to Hate Mail.
