Before joining the QI Elf Team I was a researcher for Museum of Curiosity, the BBC Radio 4 programme about interesting people donating curious things to a vast imaginary Museum.

For some reason I took it upon myself to illustrate the donations to the Museum. It is a vast ongoing project (there are over 250 donations currently in the Museum) and will take me quite some time to fully complete. I am, however, illustrating new episodes as their air, so enjoy these donations from the first episode of Series 15:

The LARGE (900ml!) mug from which Agatha Christie would drink, not tea, but cream!
To represent the combination of ancient and modern knowledge, and the use of horoscopes to search for meaning in our lives.
A long forgotten sport! Full of danger but also excitement.

To hear our wonderful and eclectic guests discuss their donations and explain why they think they deserve a place in the Museum of Curiosity, you can listen to the episode over on BBC Sounds by clicking the link: htts://
