About David Barrow

David has been a shelf-stacker, a library assistant, a call-centre worker, a civil servant and a printer, so obviously it was only a matter of time before he tried his hand at writing and illustrating children's books. He joined the world-renowned Children's Book Illustration MA at Anglia Ruskin CSA. Whilst on the course, David won the Sebastian Walker award for new talent in children's book illustration at his degree show and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Have You Seen Elephant? was published by Gecko Press in October 2015, followed by his second picture book as author-illustrator Barnaby Goes on Holiday (Hodder) in June 2017. David has also illustrated Troll Stroll (Nosy Crow) and Ice Sea Pirates (Gecko Press), both published in 2017. He lives in Kettering, UK with his toughest critics: partner Jo, son Teddy and cat Sofia.
