Until recently it was my exhausting pleasure to travel the world making documentary films, and when I was filming in Havana I was not surprised when Olly and Greg showed up: I had already got used to the idea that they are all over the world at once, like the ozone layer. Suzi had momentarily come to rest in London apparently because one of the hundreds of young men in love with her had somehow managed to attract her attention: perhaps he had dressed up as the Yeti.
--Clive James (Intoduction to Olly and Suzi’s book, Arctic Desert Ocean Jungle)
Q:How did you and Olly meet?
Suzi:Basically one day Olly took my sketchbook and started drawing kind of rude pictures in it. And at first I was a bit freaked out and then I thought it was just really funny.
Q:What kind of rude pictures?
Suzi:Well you know (makes hand movement) with jizz coming out.
Olly:Don't be silly.
Suzi:That's exactly what happened.
Olly:My mother is going to see this film!
