Wayne Anderson - Author

At the age of fifteen I began a three year Graphics Course at Leicester College of Art. This was followed by a one year Post Graduate year.

On leaving Art College I moved to London in search of work in an Advertising Agency or Design Studio. After a series of interviews it was repeatedly suggested that because of the strong drawing element in my work - maybe I should consider re organising my Portfolio with a view to becoming a Freelance Illustrator. At this time I was unaware that there existed the possibility to make a living out of creating pictures.

1970 – Having married in London and started a family, moved back to a Leicestershire village, working from home with a London based Agent.

1975 – I was commissioned to create a Children’s Book. The story concept and the pictures were completed and accepted by the Publisher – it was at this point the poet and playwright, Christopher Logue, was brought in to write the story.

The last thirty years have been involved with producing Books which are Published all over the World and in all languages - approximately fifty, Children’s and Adult.

Some Books are created together with a writer.

Some Books are already written and the illustrations are then commissioned by a Publisher.
