About the Illustrationist

This what I do;

As a younger man I recorded what I saw in my travels. I was excited and so the work was exciting. As I became more experienced and familiar with my surroundings and the way that people are, I grew less excited.  The work became less exciting too. Now I am excited again. Excited about seeing the world, about learning again. I am looking froward to producing more exciting work.

I illustrate books for children, various business documents and other material, all with a smile on my face. I love my work. This site allows me to present it all at once. It also allows me to experiment and learn which hopefully means that my improvement around the corner.

I am always busy, even though I only do three things; illustrate, design and photograph. Behind all of those goes a lot of thought. Some of my work from all three areas, can be seen at http://www.designtribe.ltd.uk, which also has some contact details if you wish to get in touch.

From 2011 the illustrationist started to focus on work  for children and families. We will expand the several categories to include playful and useful things for kids in school or at home. There will be new contributors, too. Our aim is to become a resource for all things for children and their grown ups.

  1. Hi Ken,

    How good to discover your blog. I am familiar with your work as I write picture books. You’ll find one of your covers on my new blog that is all about writing picture books.

    Thanks and best wishes,

    1. Hi George
      Thanks for finding me. I’m just discovering your blog right now. I like that you are focusing on children’s books and especially like the critique service… I may even be able to send you a few customers in the coming weeks and months.
      Best of luck

      Ken

  2. Hello Ken,
    I have no idea if you will see this, but I was looking online to find your contact information so I could send you a letter. I know this is very strange but I wanted to let you know that when my husband was a child, he had a copy of Little Red Airplane that he wore out from reading so much and carrying with him everywhere. He says that book is what got him interested in aviation and inspired him to become a pilot. We are both professional pilots and certified flight instructors and we love sharing our passion for aviation with others, including children.

    His copy of Little Red Plane was too loved to salvage, but I have ordered several more copies online to give to our niece, and someday maybe to our own children.

    I know that book was produced nearly 20 years ago, but he still talks about it to this day.
    Take care,
    Sarah

  3. Hi, Ken. I’m a children’s librarian in the U.S., and I will be reading Lenny in the Garden to two groups of 2 and 3 year-olds in a few weeks. I was wondering what tune you had in mind when you wrote the book. Curious children’s librarians want to know. Thank you for your Lenny books! My littlies love them!
