I've recently embarked on a cartoon drawing project to capture the rich an famous at home doing every day life stuff.
In my last article, I identified a new young generation, the SAFFYs: Serious, Active, Forward-Facing Youth. They're very different to the "typical teen" parodied by Kevin the Teenager. Less frivolous, hedonistic, lazy and 'devil may care'. More anxious and responsible about the future, and more respectful of the past.
Teenagers? We know what they're like, don't we. They're hedonistic and impetuous. They want their brands 'edgy' and their work easy. They kiss the future and shun the past. Sex, drugs and R&B.
As you weave between the blooming orange trees, which beguilingly give out an aroma of comforting honey in the spring, in the garden of the grand but homely house of the late great poet and author Robert Graves, you feel he'd achieved what every artist craves - an inspiring base, studio or home where you can create.
This is simply the work of a surly photographer imposing into another celebrity's private life; the photograph was taken on a backstreet while Jennifer was shopping with a friend, she didn't spark up live on stage or television.

Thankfully more and more people are rejecting the products from animals kept in these grossly unjust ways. The free range market is growing fast.
Let's imagine the point of this movie now, darling. The angle. Consider this, sweetheart: It's the recession. That awful thing making us more guilty when we spend spend spend. Eddie and Patsy are in a bad place because Eddie doesn't understand money
On Saturday I got up alarmingly early to beaver across to Sky TV studios for the privilege of reviewing papers.
It is the sort of skill which only comes with experience and, sadly, the passing of years. However, learning to be comfortable in one's clothes and one's surroundings is surely something that no plastic surgeon - or Joanna Lumley, for that matter - can provide.
I have learned a lot about myself on Celebrity Coach Trip - not least that being chums with famous people who you also have to 'vote off' may not actually be in my top skill set. But it's certainly been a journey (from Pisa to Roma).
Am now besties with Lulu I do hope - LOVE her hair. Would have asked for the name of her hair dye if I'd thought, but was too busy remembering my lines. How does she do it? I must copy. Get drunk in Green Room at Ab Fab after party. Shove mobile phone down cleavage.
I started a business. It made me want to drink copious quantities, smoke myself into oblivion and hit my head against a brick wall. Instead I wrote a ...
