Who Wrote Nipper and the Lunchbox

author & illustrator
Lucy Dillamore

Hello there! I’m an illustrator / author living in Lincolnshire, UK.

My debut picturebook ‘Nipper and the Lunchbox’ (Child’s Play) was published in the UK, USA and Australia in 2018. The book also has two co-editions (danish and dutch) and features in the 2018 Peters’ calendar.

In 2014 I achieved a first class degree in Ba(Hons) Illustration at Norwich University of the Arts. From a young age have always loved drawing and in that same year I decided to follow my passion for children’s books and apply for a place on the prestigious MA Children’s Book Illustration course at Cambridge School of Art where I graduated from in 2017.

My work is full of painterly shape and colour bought together by drawn line. I often work in gouache, watercolour paint and pencils and ink. I love creating characters (especially animals!) and conveying gentle humour.

In my spare time I love travelling, instagramming, watching 80’s movies and going for walks around the lovely Lincolnshire countryside.

I am represented by Caroline Walsh at David Higham Associates
