About the Author

DAN HOLTON began playing guitar at 15, and hasn't been without a guitar for more than a day or two ever since. He has a degree in music and studied under eminent musicians Guthrie Govan and Ace. He has toured and played in a band and now settled down to teaching fulltime through his own business, the Brighton Guitar Academy. The Academy has over 1500 students on its books and, when not teaching, Dan also produces music videos as well as writing freelance for guitar companies such as Riffstation, Blues Guitar Master and many others. JOANNA KERR has an MA in Sequential Illustration from the University of Brighton and an MFA in Fine Art from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford. She has worked as an illustrator for many years, and has moved from the medium of linoprint into digital illustration. As well as creating her own delightful illustrations, Joanna also teaches illustration on a Foundation degree programme which, she says, constantly informs her practice and challenges and inspires her work. She also has a cat called Lulu and enjoys gardening and country walks.
