Introduction I have been a children's book illustrator for the last 17 years and have more than 30 published books. I am also an Urban Sketchers correspondent and reportage-artist. My book Sketching People was published by Search Press and Barrons in 2016. I give inspirational lectures, and run illustration and sketching workshops, both in the UK and abroad, for adults and in schools. I have delivered events in China, Brazil, Spain and the Dominican Republic. In 2017/18 I am running workshops in Chicago, Perth and Sydney. Email me if you would like to book a talk or workshop. If you are interested in a particular aspect of my work, want to follow an individual project, or find out more about my free monthly SketchCrawls, check out the labels below.
