Interesting Facts

1 In June 2014 he was found guilty of (and in July 2014 he was sentenced to 5 years and 9 months) 12 historic indecent assaults against four girls aged between 8 and 19 at the time of the assaults. The sentence was referred to the Attorney General Dominic Grieve after complaints that it was too lenient. On 30 July 2014, the new Attorney General, Jeremy Wright, announced that he would not be referring the sentence to the court of appeal for review "as he did not think they would find it to be unduly lenient and increase it. The sentencing judge was bound by the maximum sentence in force at the time of the offending." On 1 August 2014, the Judicial Office said that Harris had applied to appeal against his conviction and that his lawyers had lodged papers at the Court of Appeal. In October 2014, Harris was refused permission to appeal. Since his conviction there have been further reports to police regarding alleged sexual offences on young girls and women by him.

1 People say "Are you going to retire?" To me that sort of equates with lying down and dying. When you're doing something you love to do, why would you stop?
2 I don't quite know what the reason for critics' existence is really. They seem to sit there and try and think of something snide to say about something which is fairly popular, so if it's popular they think it can't be any good.
3 I don't mind how they [people] see me as long as they see me.
4 [on his longevity] Try and spread a lot of love and affection around the world. The most important thing is not to 'con' the public. Be real.
5 It's essential that you make eye contact with your audience. You've got to know what's happening out there. If you make eye contact with just one person, everybody in the place, by some indefinable magic, is sure that you're talking to them personally.
6 I can't bear the thought of having everything in an exhibition being the same, I hate it when I go into a gallery and the paintings are all identical, with the same subject but from slightly different angles.
7 I like to slosh on paint to kill the white of the canvas with a bit of turpentine. Then I start with a blur which looks something like the subject and I gradually refine it.
8 I draw the line at filth and crude language. It seems to be an excuse for not being funny.
9 I hope that maybe I am on this planet to try and spread a bit of love and affection and to try and help people to warm toward their fellow man instead of all this destruction and misery
10 The most wonderful magic is watching someone doing a drawing in front of your eyes and that's why drawing and painting on TV is wonderful - it's always a total mystery, and the training I have had in fine art, I have been able to use that.
11 Can you tell what it is yet?
