Eric served in the South Wales fire and rescue service for three decades before retiring to pursue a career in illustration. Completely self-taught and inspired since childhood by such greats as Ronald Searle, Ken Anderson, Mary Blair, Quentin Blake and Mike Mignola. He has a highly-detailed drawing style for fiction, alongside a more graphic/collage style for picture books and when he’s not drawing Vikings, pirates and trolls you’ll find him walking his beagle, Bella, and searching for dragons in the hills of his native Wales.
