The artist, who has also published many books in his own right, said today that many of his overseas fans assume mistakenly that he is already a Sir.
"The funny thing is that my books are published a lot in France and Germany and I get a lot of letters from people there who think I have got it already, so I suppose this kind of regularises it," he said.
"I haven't quite got used to it yet, but I'm very pleased about it.
