A collection of cartoons by Absolute Radio presenter
My name is Andy Bush, I present the afternoon show on Absolute Radio and when the songs are on I like to draw silly pictures of famous people – now I’m putting these pictures together into one lovely book just for YOU.
Celebs at Home is my take on what the rich and famous get up to behind closed doors and away from the glare of the public eye. I’m lucky to get to interview some big stars at Absolute Radio and I’ve always wondered if they have to do mundane boring stuff like you and I? Do Kraftwerk put the bins out together? Does Paul Weller defrost the freezer with bin bags on the floor? Does Springsteen always accidentally try and turn the telly on with the DVD remote?
I would love you forever if you back my book and make this happen so we can finally get these important questions answered once and for all. If you support Celebs at Home you’ll not only get a gorgeous little book that’ll look amazing on your coffee table but you can also bag yourself a night out with the Absolute Radio team or maybe sit in on my show! The sky is the limit!
Where we're at! Update
Thursday, 23 August 2018
Hello my lovely backers,
Sorry its been a while since my last update - we’ve got a baby due ANY DAY so it’s been battle stations in the Bush household for the past few weeks!
I’ve had a few questions recently from you guys about the status of the book so here’s a quick recap of where we’re at...
Celebs at Home has been funded through your amazing support and I’ve submitted all of the completed…
The Process Begins...
Thursday, 24 May 2018
Hello to my lovely backers.
I just wanted to keep you all in the loop as to the progress of my hotly anticipated Celebs at Home picture book! I am extremely chuffed / relieved to have submitted all the pictures to the publishers and they’re now going through them frame by frame and making any adjustments (fixing my mistakes). I’m just the idiot who sits and scribbles on a bit of paper during the…
Britney Spears the Final Frontier

The Final picture is finished!!!!
Hi! Sorry things have gone quiet over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been furiously scribbling away to try and get the last few pictures done. This picture of Britney Spears blowdrying her hair is the final picture (this must whet your appetite beyond belief for the final product), I’m going to celebrate with a beer this evening then it’s just a matter of doing…

Hello amazing backers / friends / partners in crime
We're onto the business phase of getting Celebs at Home finished and ready for printing!
This morning I popped into Unbound Towers to have a catch up with Phil and Georgia (plush offices pictured). We'll be getting in touch soon to organise the Absolute Radio tour and night out (which will be amazing) and soon I'll be heading to Unbound's office…
So what Happens Next?
Friday, 2 March 2018
Firstly can I just say THANKYOU again to all of you for backing the book, there have been a load of points during the process of getting it funded where I thought it was never going to happen, so without your support I'd be nothing - you have my enduring loyalty for getting involved. I'm now in a process of selecting the pictures that'll make the finished product, making some tweaks to images and…
We Did it!
Thursday, 8 February 2018
Well team – it’s taken us a while to get there but thanks to your amazing support and me constantly banging on about it I’m delighted to announce that Celebs at Home is funded! I’m over the moon and I appreciate all your help and backing over the past few months. Thankyou to the people who’ve bought hardbacks, t-shirts, prints, radio demos – the people who’ve booked me to come round and make their…

Hello dear backers!
Things have moved so quickly over the past few weeks and I’m delight to say that Celebs at Home is now at 91% funded – we are tantalisingly close! It seems that my offer of putting backers into my ‘The Sims’ world with Absolute Radio colleagues Dave Berry, Matt Dyson and Rob Beckett has brought some new people on board! Welcome to all the newbies!
With us being so close to…

Happy New Year to #TeamCelebsatHome (that’s what I’m calling us now). Thanks again for all your support with this last year and I’m sorry if it feels like I’m rattling on about this book so much, but getting the message across to people above all the other things life throws at us take immense persistence!
I am delighted to announce that the book is now 75% funded and amazingly the Digital Pre…

Hello dear backers - just a quick note to metaphorically release some doves as the book has hit a superb 62% funded! Thanks to everyone who’s been there from the start and a warm embrace to the ‘newbies’.
Thankyou also for your excellent celeb at home scenario ideas - if you happen to find yourself doing a really mundane household chore and stop to wonder if someone famous like Sting has…
Ideas, ideas, ideas

Hello dear backers!
Thanks again for getting involved, I know you will love the finished product and it’s awesome to get to 55% funded at the time of writing this e-mail. I’m currently sat in a cafe (just having had a cooked breakfast where they’ve inexplicably added ‘peanut butter’ on the side of the plate as a condiment) trying to come up with picture ideas. If you can think of any FAMOUS…
Beyond Half Way!
Tuesday, 14 November 2017
Hey all just a quick update to say how excited I am that we are beyond the half way stage. A few months ago the thought of being 52% funded seemed a million miles away, but together we are getting there bit by bit. The recent progress has got me thinking of picture ideas too - so if you have any suggestions for Celebs in household situation combinations drop me a line and I'll draw em - maybe they…

Hello backer! Thankyou so much for being a supporter of Celebs at Home, I really appreciate it and I promise you will love the finished product - who wouldn't want a book on their coffee table that features Elton John searching down the back of his couch for change? We're nearly 50% funded and I'm hoping that this second half will be easier to drum up support - I feel bad pestering people to pledge…
