About the Author

Martin Handford

Martin Handford published his first Where's Wally? book in 1987. 25 years later, his books have become a multi-million-selling, global success. Martin spent much of his childhood watching cinema epics and playing with toy soldiers which inspired him to draw scenes teeming with characters and action. At Art College he learned the craft of illustration developing a vibrantly colourful style which lost little when printed. As a freelance illustrator his witty, engaging images proved popular with numerous clients but his narrative strength came to the fore when Sebastian Walker offered him the opportunity to pour his imagination into a book. Now dedicated to Wally, Martin gathers his inspiration from a huge variety of sources including films; visiting museums and art galleries; reading comics and books; and collecting ephemera and trivia. He continues to be fascinated by crowds: their vibrancy, pattern, and range of detail and humour provide him with limitless source material: "I love their movement and energy." He is also constantly on the look-out for puns and wordplay to use in his pictures. Gradually, from all of this meticulous research, astonishing craft and patience his unique scenes are created. A picture takes Martin many months to draw, with Wally added "when I come to what I feel is a good place to hide him," he explains.
