About the Author

Sholto Walker's illustrations are produced both digitally and with more traditional methods. He has found his digitally enhanced line work has given him an opportunity to produce illustrations which give great scope for expressing ideas, while his watercolour drawings usually provide a more gentle response to a commission.
