About the author:
About the illustrator: Danny Deeptown is a professional freelance illustrator living in South Wales, UK. Some might say he is an endangered species as he is not seen by many, but the truth is he is an elusive creature who is most often found in his studio drawing away for long periods of time with wildlife documentaries on in the background and his cat, Bernie, for company. Being obsessed with wildlife from a young age, Deeptown found his love of drawing through hours of copying scientific illustrations from books of animals and dinosaurs. Heavily influenced by classic book illustrations, Danny's love of ink & watercolor and eccentricity of line is very evident in his work. He has a real passion for good ol' drawing and whilst he is most happy working traditionally, his more recent works combine a mixture of traditional and digital media to add texture and vibrancy to gain originality.
