Ted grew up in Kent reading Where's Wally and Dr Seuss books and admiring their wacky surreal depictions. He then went on and decided to pick up the pen and get into to surreal creations of his own. Some of Ted's early influences are Basquiat and Noel Fielding.
He believes the world is a strange place in which even stranger people reside. Through his art he tries to capture this absurdity, using surrealist techniques such as automatic drawing. He mostly uses ink and pen to achieve his satirical and absurd works.
