Author Biography

James Gulliver Hancock feels sick when he's not drawing. He panics that he may not be able to draw everything in the world... at least once. His obsession with re-imaging his world has seen him work for major print, TV and music publishing releases. He has participated in projects in the USA the UK, Indonesia, Austria, Germany, France and Australia, taking his whimsical perception around the world. Currently he works out of two studios: one in The Pencil Factory in Brooklyn, New York, and from his homeland studio by the beach in Sydney, Australia. London-based illustrator Hennie Haworth studied at Brighton University before embarking on her artistic career. She has worked with a wide range of clients, including Converse, Louis Vuitton, Dwell Magazine, GQ Magazine, Royal Mail, Logitech, Hyundai, and Morrisons. Hennie is a regular illustrator for National Geographic's 'City Life' articles. Stuart Hill is a freelance illustrator and designer from the flat lands of Lincolnshire, which might explain his fear and fascination of mountains. He likes printed textures, handmade type, and riding his bike. He specialises in editorial illustrations, typography, and making maps. Sarah King is an illustrator from London, England. Her love of travel led to a natural love of maps, and illustrating maps has become a way for her to tell stories of the places she has been.
