Week 9 - Matt Robertson

The book has made its way to Norwich where it will be living for the next two weeks as Matt Robertson and Gemma Correll are practically neighbours! So for the first time the book was hand delivered instead of being posted (anything to reduce its carbon footprint!). So a little about week 9 and its fab artist, Matt Robertson...

Matt has always loved drawing, and following in the footsteps of his father and older brother he studied art at college. He went on to study Illustration at The Cambridge School of Art and it was during this time that his interest in picture books really began.

In 2011 Matt returned to The Cambridge School of Art and is currently in the second year of his M.A. in Children's Book Illustration. Represented by Advocate Art, illustration agency, Matt's past clients include The Sunday Telegraph, Random House and Harper Collins. His first book is due to be published in 2013.

Matt is a devoted bread maker and impatient gardener. He lives in the fine city of Norwich with his wife.

You can follow Matt on twitter and check out his fab work on his blog. And so the book stays in Norwich and gets passed on to the legendary pug lover, Gemma Correll. Until week 10...
