Jonny Duddle's picture

Jonny Duddle

Jonny spent his childhood in the wet and windy hills of North Wales, exploring forests, riding his bike for miles and miles, scrumping apples and building tree-houses. When he wasnt outside he was drawing and busily creating worlds, sprawled across his bedroom floor, with paper everywhere.

When he realised he had to grow up and get a job, he went to college to study illustration and then got himself a proper job on a pirate ship. He spent a year climbing up and down rigging before jumping ship in Dublin because the ships chef didnt like his vegetarian ways. As a landlubber, he enjoyed stints as an encyclopaedia salesman, a childrens entertainer in Majorca, a gallery warden, and an art teacher in Kang, a small village in the middle of the Kalahari Desert.
