Leo Hartas

  • 5 stars across 47 books
    Leo Hartas has been a professional illustrator for over 30 years and started drawing from the moment he could hold a pencil. He uses a range of mediums including traditional ink, line and watercolour, acrylics, digital, DTP and 3D. Leo loves to create highly imaginative fiction and illuminating non-fiction, both with warmth and humour.
    Jon Davis studied Illustration at Glyndwr University, Wrexham, and after that spent some time doing 3D animation. Some of his films were screened around the world, but eventually he came back to illustration. Jon loves the liveliness and breadth of imagination you can use with children's books and works digitally, in Photoshop with a tablet and pen. He currently lives and works in Twickenham. Dave Shephard lives with his family in the beautiful South Downs National Park in England, a stones throw from the coast. A love of drawing and sea swimming made the area a natural fit. He's worked in the wonderfully varied and ever evolving world of Illustration for all of his professional career, specialising in books for teens, younger readers, and graphic novels.
    www.daveshephard.com Jonathan Litton has written numerous children's books in prose and verse. He loves using his science background to write about sea creatures, space and saving the planet, but is also fond of penning stories about pirates, princesses and picnics. When not writing, he can usually be found on his bike.
