David Lock


Early years, primary, secondary, stories & fairytales, cartoon & comic, black & white



I am a freelance cartoonist and humorous illustrator. I work in line and colour on paper, and can work to a brief or develop my own characters, which I prefer. 

My style is lively and friendly, though I can draw edgier characters when required. 

My work has featured in several publishers' primary reading schemes and textbooks, and a number of English Language Teaching schemes, where the cartoon approach works well. 

I am the principle illustrator for the 'Wandsville' and 'Wonderland' series of books (q.v.).
