My name is Jon Davis, and I am a freelance illustrator, living and working in Twickenham, UK. I've always loved drawing as a child, thinking up characters and stories - paints, pencils, felt tips, crayons, anything would do. So I decided to study Illustration at Glyndwr University, Wrexham. I spent a few years doing 3D animation but now I'm a full time illustrator.
I work digitally, in Photoshop with a tablet and pen, because the 'undo' function saves me from the depths of frustration.
I currently have picture books out with Sterling, Harcourt and Hallmark, and a series of young readers out with Hardie Grant Egmont and Scholastic (see my books section). I have worked on more than 30 other books with publishers including Faber & Faber, OUP, Miles Kelly, Tiger Tales, Thomas Nelson and Pearson.
My first self-penned Picture book, "Small Blue and the Deep Dark Night" came out last year with Harcourt and I am currently working on some further concepts for picture books.
