Brendan's bio, in his own words:

Whilst studying Architecture at University I realised I didn’t like rulers. I also discovered that drawing pictures for a living was a legitimate and fun career option, and so traded architecture for illustration as quickly as I could. Having now completed my degree in Illustration I specialise in Children’s books and artwork, bringing my own chaotic style and ideas to any project. If you can’t find me drawing you are likely to find me with a guitar or banjo in hand. I like mince pies. I don’t like carrots.
