It’s not every day an article in Business Monthly starts with “floppy hair”. I was interviewed for the Star’s Business Monthly by David Walsh. The featured article was skilfully placed around an advert for growing your business, like a Tetris block. Overall I’m pleased with the article, but I just want to set some things straight.
I was quoted as saying “I fed up of…” which makes me sound a bit like a cave man, the thing is knowing me I probably did say “I fed up…” rather than “I’m fed up…”. The only other thing is the section at the bottom called “Alex’s success in beating the odds” says that I created papertoys, Clink and Klank, Skelatoon and Wearwolf during my art GCSE. This isn’t true, the toys I created in my art GCSE (and that got me started in papertoys) where called Sockdogz and there where 6 toys that showed the transition of styles and mechanisms in the last 100 years.
I created the papertoys because I thought I was going to fail my art GCSE and just wanted to take something home, ironically my teacher kept them. I received an e-mail from my old art teacher the other day congratulating me on winning the Ambition AXA Award, it made my day, thanks Ms Bellingham.
Below is a closer look at the article, so it’s easier to read.
