Dave Caskey at Belfast's NVTV recently invited Neal to sit down with Lisburn Illustrator and DJ Ali P to talk career highs and lows, preferred artistic mediums and advice for emerging artists and Illustrators. Ali and Neal were understandably nervous to have the camera turned on them, but soon fell into an honest, easy conversation about the highs and lows of being a professional Illustrator in Northern Ireland. Have a watch – I think a sidehustle as a chatshow host may be on the cards!
