About The Illustrator

John Wallace’s formal training was not in illustration, but rather theology, which he received at University of Cambridge. However, he always loved drawing, and one of his early jobs was as a newspaper cartoonist. In his children’s book illustrations, he is particularly inspired by what he calls “the gooniness” of young schoolchildren. John lives in Broadstairs, England.
