Who Illustrated Pirates Don't Drive Diggers

Duncan Beedie
Verified creative

I am a freelance illustrator and children’s author based in Bristol, UK. I have been doodling and drawing since way back in the early 1980s, lying on my parents’ living room floor, grasping a felt tip in my clammy little fist, through to my current profession, grasping a Wacom stylus in my clammy little fist. So, not much has changed, although I no longer lie on the floor to draw.

My debut picture book ‘The Bear Who Stared’ was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2017, and my second book, ‘The Lumberjack’s Beard,’ was shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards in 2018. Other books include ‘The Last Chip’ and ‘Molly’s Moon Mission’ (due out in February 2019.)
