George was also interviewed on TV by several news crews (Central, BBC, Sky) regarding his caricature exhibition at the Leicester Comedy Festival earlier that year.
In February 2005 George was asked to draw live on ITV’s Paul O’Grady show, where he drew several guests on set throughout the show, including Jerry Hall, Terry Jones and of course Paul O’Grady himself.
