As brothers we’ve been creating characters and stories together for over 30 years. It started as a means to entertain ourselves, then, as we got older, our children. We’re passionate about working together to create stories and illustrations which are fun for readers and listeners of all ages.
We were born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne, where we still reside with our own families. For the last 10 years Tom has worked in Graphic Design, producing illustrations for several market-leading companies. He also has a semi-impressive coin collection. John has spent 15 years working as a Civil Servant, and eats nine olives every day without fail.
Our offbeat style draws from all the things that made our childhood so great: madcap 90s cartoons, larger than life wrestlers and the endless possibilities of a Saturday afternoon.
