Chris Chatterton began his career in graphic design and animation working on a variety of commercial and corporate projects as well as TV shows including Dr Who, Spooks and CBBC’s The Dumping Ground.
His passion for illustration led him to pursue a career as a freelance artist and has illustrated over fifty children’s books published in the UK and Worldwide including the best selling Ten Minutes to Bed series (Ladybird) and The Worrysaurus (Orchard - Written by Rachel Bright)
Now writing the stories as well, his debut author/illustrator picture book ‘This is Gus’ (Macmillan) is about a rather grumpy but loveable dog. Chris considers his Gus picture book story to be semi-autobiographical as he claims his Gus character is based on his own grumpy moods!
Originally from County Durham, Chris now lives and works in Spain.
