After graduating from Cornwall School of Art & Design in 1982, Steve went to work for a design firm creating a variety of licensed characters, in particular those for "Roland Rat", a British television series, and for its use in various merchandise products. In 1987 he established, Primary Design, which quickly became the approved studio for the illustration and design of many well-known TV characters. After about five years, however, despite his success, he decided that the drawing board was more satisfying to him than running a company, and he returned to full-time illustration. Steve lives in Bath, England. |
Below are his most recent projects, The Very First Christmas by Lori C. Froeb (Kregel Children's Books), Is That You, Monster?
