Biography
Just over a third of a century ago, a boy called Jago arrived here on Earth with a burning ambition to be ....
Superman, Indiana Jones, or quite possibly King Arthur.
Afer much 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.
Methods
I work almost entirely digitally, using 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 love stong colours and interesting textures and am always trying out new techniques.
I enjoy working on children's books and am drawn to stories with a hint of eccentricity.
