About the illustrator

Draw. Draw. Draw. This has been the story of Paul Daviz’s life from an early age. He drew on his schoolbooks, drew when he got a job in a pyjama factory, and built up an extraordinary portfolio of imagery which won him work storyboarding TV commercials, animated productions, packaging and print campaigns for top London agencies. Originally from Blackburn, today Paul is a vastly experienced illustrator confident working in a whole range of cartoony styles, and still draws on a daily basis.
