Meet the artists

Jon Davis is a talented illustrator that has been with Advocate for a while, but we'd like to tell you a bit more about him. As you can see his children's book illustrations are fun, charming and beautifully coloured. Read on to learn more about Jon or see more of his work by visiting our website. I always loved drawing as a child. Paints, pencils, felt tips, crayons, anything would do, and art lessons were my favourite at school by far. So, I decided to study Illustration at Glyndwr University, Wrexham, and after that spent some time doing 3D animation. I got some of my films screened at a few festivals around the world, including Raindance, but not long after I returned to illustration. I find my work and ideas naturally fall into the world of children's books, and I love the liveliness and breadth of imagination you can use with them. I work digitally, in Photoshop with a tablet and pen, because the 'undo' function saves me from the depths of frustration. I currently live and work in Twickenham
