About this artist
From a young age Benji was often to be found drawing and painting at the kitchen table, a scene which can still be seen to this day.
He has always loved creating images on the page and seeing his work in print is a childhood ambition fulfilled; it gets no less exciting every time a freshly published box of books arrives on his doorstep.
Benji studied animation at university, and in his career so far has juggled illustrating children's books alongside directing animated commercials, music promos and short films.
He 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.
Benji is now proud to be working on his own texts with Simon & Schuster, with a view to producing more of his own self authored work in the future, alongside a staple of commissioned picture book work.
His work has been co-editioned in many languages and countries, across Europe and around the world.
He lives in East London with his newly appointed wife
