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.
After a little hard work and an awful lot of drawing he settled on his fourth choice of career, illustrating children's books, something he reckons he could be quite good at one day.
He lives in a slightly damp wetsuit in Cornwall with his 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.
