Week 22 - Benji Davies

We travel back to London for week 22 with the next three illustrators all residing there. This week the book is with the animation director turned illustrator, Benji Davies.

Benji studied animation at university, and his career so far has juggled illustrating children's books alongside directing animated commercials, music promos and short films. His books have been co-editioned in many languages and countries, across Europe and around the world.
He is proud to now be working on his own texts, with his first self-penned picture book, The Storm Whale, due for release August 2013.

Benji is the illustrator of Nosy Crow's start-up list favourite Bizzy Bear. The series, which continues to expand, is now being rolled out as a series of apps to compliment the books.

He currently lives in East London with his recently appointed wife.

Thanks for a great spread, Benji! If you'd like to get to know Mister Davies a bit better check out his wonderful work on his website, be a fan on his Facebook page and follow him on his twitter. So week 23 lurks around the corner with the book staying in London to visit the brilliant Sarah Horne. Until the next post...
