Barry Timms

  • 5 stars across 10 books
    Barry likes the way that stories bring people together. He can often be found with pencil in hand, writing or drawing or both. He loves road movies, ghost trains and exploring forgotten side streets. Greg Abbott is an illustrator and designer based in West Sussex, England. He works with a variety of clients on all sorts of creative endeavours, but mostly as a children's illustrator on narrative and character driven projects. In between commissions Greg likes to experiment with new techniques and keeps himself busy with self-initiated personal projects, from developing story ideas and illustrations, to coding and automating things.
