Aged 17, David Wyatt’s first professional work appeared in British comic 2000AD, illustrating a strip for Neil Gaiman. Since then he has focused on Children’s books, working with authors including Philip Pullman, Diana Wynne Jones, Terry Pratchett, Geraldine McCaughrean and Philip Reeve.
He lives on Dartmoor where the ancient landscape provides much inspiration for his particular brand of mythic art.
Recently he won the Blue Peter Book of the Year for his work on Podkin One-Ear by Kieran Larwood.
