Tim has written three heavily illustrated travel/memoir books:
* Is Shane MacGowan Still Alive? - journeys into different kinds of Irishness
* The Groundwater Diaries - a search for the lost rivers of London
* Small Town England - love, chaos and 50cc motorycles in the East Midlands
He moves with his family between North London and Co. Clare in Ireland, depending on
weather patterns and how his trees are doing.
BOASTING: Tim Bradford is a straw-haired unshaven comedy writing supernova, KING of all kinds of scratchy drawing, wang-eyed painting and not-quite-made-up tangential writing – in fact he is most likely the best on his street. At least that’s what his family tell him. When they’re in a good mood.
• Shane MacGowan once called his writing style “sort of Joycean” – though that might mean the punctuation was a bit off.
• The Fall’s Mark E Smith said he liked his football cartoons
• During his solo art exhibition in Ireland some french tourists said they really liked his paintings (though they didn’t buy any).
• As for awards, he was nominated for Sports Cartoonist of the Year in 1995 and won Most Improved Player for his U16 football team in 1981.
SELF-LOATHING: Tim should have done something to help humanity instead of spending most of my adult years drawing pictures of footballers and generally arsing around. He can’t even play the guitar properly.
