Jay Birks has been drawing in the back of his school books since he was a young child. After driving his teachers and parents mad he then went on to study graphics at art school. He now has his dream job of illustrating all day long. He lives in Yorkshire and when he isn’t drawing books he likes going to cafes and drawing some more. He also likes reading, watching lots of films, and playing with his cat. He’s still a young pup and has only just graduated but has so far illustrated two books for Pearson press, and illustrated Gag cartoons for Private Eye.
He likes to work very simply in HB pencil followed by inking his work in biro and finally applying colour either by paint or digitally.
