I am a freelance illustrator and children’s author based in Bristol, UK. I have been doodling and drawing since way back in the early 1980s, lying on my parents’ living room floor, grasping a felt tip in my clammy little fist, through to my current profession, grasping a Wacom stylus in my clammy little fist. So, not much has changed, although I no longer lie on the floor to draw. I have a desk at Paintworks in Bristol that overlooks the city. It’s much more accommodating than nylon shag pile.

I have recently had my first children’s picture book published – The Bear Who Stared was published by Templar in Feb 2016, and I have four more titles in development. My second book ‘The Lumberjack’s Beard’ is to be published in Feb 2017.

I am represented for illustration work by Illustration Ltd and have so far been commissioned to illustrate for Computer Arts Magazine, RCSLT Bulletin, Scholastic, Quarto, Walker Books, OUP and a compendium of bawdy poetry by W J Burkland. Last year I also illustrated a children’s book by Alex English entitled ‘Pirates Don’t Drive Diggers’ (pub. Maverick Arts Books, May 2015).

I have worked in animation on a diverse series of projects for TV and web, including satirical sketches for BBC Three, segments for children’s TV shows and websites and TV commercials to name a few. Clients include CBBC, Penguin, Aardman Animations, Brothers McLeod and Sun & Moon Studios.

When not hunched over a graphics tablet I like to get out and about with my dog, Ivor, and corrupt my daughter with cartoons and video games. Read Less
