Martin Brown - Illustrator

About the Illustrator

When Martin Brown was little he loved drawing and he loved animals, particularly lesser-known animals, so it was only a question of time before he ended up drawing them. Quite a lot of time . . .

In the meantime, he grew up, moved from Melbourne to England, and illustrated the phenomenally successful Horrible Histories series.

Now, at last, it’s time for the animals.
