Kev grew up with a love of books, comics and cartoons which inspired him to draw. Someone once told him that he sees life as a cartoon and that is pretty ok with him.
His artwork always starts with his sketchpad before moving on to digital and his studio is filled with sketches, colours and coffee.
He loves bringing ideas to life and, as a primary school teacher for 17 years, has a keen interest in educational ideas.
His first book, ‘B is for Blobfish’, was inspired when planning a science lesson and features a wide range of unusual and unloved animals.
Alongside illustration, he writes stories, poems and creates animations and interactive games. He‘s also a town crier and 4th generation Punch and Judy man - Oyez! Oyez!
Kev is represented by Advocate Art for illustration and Authors Abroad for school visits.

Marvel or DC?
I think this photo from a Father's Day photoshoot answers that nicely!
Car or Bike?
Bike. Although I shudder slightly when I'm ever asked to illustrate either of them.
Bake Off or Strictly Come Dancing?
I don't really watch either but maybe if they ever do a Strictly Come Baking mash-up then I'll tune in.
Cat or Dog?
Catdog! If you are of a certain age then you'll know what I mean. Loved that show.
David Hockney or Damien Hirst?
David Hockney. His paintings are so bright and alluring. I wish I could step into them.
