David is more commonly known as Dave. However, he’ll always be David to his Mum and to his partner Jo when he’s been particularly naughty. After many jobs in many different fields, he made the life-changing decision to do an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at The Cambridge School of Art. David graduated in 2015, winning the Sebastian Walker Award for most promising student, and is now living the dream making picture books as his proper full-time job! His first book, Have You Seen Elephant?, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. David currently resides in the wilds of Northamptonshire with Jo, his son Teddy and their over-affectionate cat Sofia.
