Chris Chatterton began his career in graphic design and animation, working on a variety of projects including ‘Dr Who’ and CBBC’s ‘The Dumping Ground. Chris’ passion for illustration then led him to pursue a career as a freelance artist working on a number of children’s books including the ‘Gremlins’ picture book series (Egmont). Now writing the stories as well, his debut author/illustrator picture book ‘Gus’ (Macmillan) is about a rather grumpy but loveable dog. Originally from County Durham, Chris now lives and works in the basement studio of his house in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
