Raymond Briggs: The kind of work I do, which involves writing, designing and illustrating, needs a lot of space. This room is about 14 x 28 feet and is nowhere near big enough. This picture shows just a corner of it. There is also an ex-billiards table covered in equipment which the lucky scribbly-tappy writer does not need.
Fungus the Bogeyman by Raymond Briggs. Most people know Raymond Briggs (even if they don't know they know him) for The Snowman, a wonderful children's book to be sure, but it is unusual for his work in that it's a traditional picture book, where most of his books are graphic novels or comics. This book I read as a kid, along with Father Christmas and Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age.
