Calvin Innes has been doodling, sketching, scribbling and drawing up weird and wonderful illustrations for a living for well over a decade. He started early, taking on his first client at the age of 16.
He has worked on everything from books and comics, greetings cards and posters, through to storyboards for films and TV commercials, concept art for toys and computer games, and most things in between. He has over thirty books published and regularly works for all sorts of companies from all over the world.
His favourite illustrations to work on are silly and detailed cartoons. For Calvin one of the great joys of putting any drawing together is adding in all sorts of bits and pieces and humorous 'mini-scenes' for the viewer to find. Calvin's cats (Hendrix, Blackie and Toki) have a habit of popping up in quite a few of his books and illustrations, as does his baby son.
Calvin lives with his wife, young son and three cats in little village in North Yorkshire, where he works from his home studio.
