At The Sweet Setup:
Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.
Today’s victim, er, interviewee:
I’m Jago and I have been illustrating children’s books for the last 11 years (basically I get paid to draw pictures… yep). I live in Cornwall, the little bit of the UK that sticks out into the Atlantic. I have produced illustrations for over 40 children’s books and a few magazines, as well as some logos and album covers. Recently I have also participated in a couple of exhibitions and signed prints of my work are now available in galleries in the UK (as well as on my shop).
Most of my recent work however has been for publishers in the US as my agent (Ronnie Herman) is based in New York. I’m probably best known for my work with New York Times Bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones. Our books have sold more than 1.3 million copies and won a tidy stack of awards.
I’ve just completed a logo for a permaculture farm in Oregon and I’m currently putting the finishing touches on a book about the collective nouns for different animals. It’s called An Ambush of Tigers and is being published by Millbrook Press in the US.
