Dave has worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in the North West of England for many years. An even mix of graphic design and illustration has provided him with a very good insight into the creative industry. After numerous jobs with advertising agencies, a greeting card retailer, and a company that provided activity packs for children, Dave felt it was time to really concentrate on an area that he was truly passionate about. Creating fun, bright illustration to help tell stories and educate children’s imaginations is what he finds most rewarding about children’s publishing. Dave now does this from my his spare room at home, mixing good old pencils (always red and blue), paper and digital pixels with the company of his Sprocker Spaniel Charlie and a few Ragdoll cats.
