Sean was born in Derbyshire and studied at the Mansfield College of Art and then moved to Bristol to study Illustration. Sean being himself big and hairy, he was always happiest drawing Bears, Gorillas and other big hairy creatures. This naturally led him to a career in Children's books illustration. He still lives in Bristol with his girlfriend, with whom he shares a woolly blanket, a biscuit barrel and a dream that one day they'll get a dog and some chickens. Sean has been working as a freelance illustrator and writer for many years, working on many fun and exciting projects, something that he hopes will continue for many years to come.
