Biography

Jago

Some time ago, a boy called Jago arrived here on Earth with a burning ambition to be...

Superman, Indiana Jones, or quite possibly King Arthur.

Afer a little hard work and an awful lot of drawing I settled on my fourth choice of career, illustrating children's books, something I reckon I could be quite good at one day.

I live in a slightly damp wetsuit in Cornwall with my fantastically lovely wife Alex, beautiful daughter Lily Peach and small round son, Rudy.

I work almost entirely digitally, using a couple of Macs and an iPad in a secret blend of the finest textures, papers and digital paints. I could tell you how I make each picture, but then I'd have to kill you.

I enjoy working on children's books and am drawn to stories with a hint of eccentricity.
