Mat Head

Mat Head has spent the last 15 years working as an art director in advertising. He lives
in East Sussex with his partner and two young sons. He has always loved drawing, but
also spent a lot of his childhood outside kicking footballs into flowerbeds. Still a fan
of the great outdoors, Mat and his family like to escape in their camper van whenever
possible and visit beautiful, mystical places.

Warduff and the Corncob Caper was Mat’s first picture book.
