Martin Handford

Martin Handford spent much of his childhood drawing and his earliest influences were cinema epics and playing with toy soldiers. At art college he continued to draw what he calls “busy and militarily correct battle scenes” which led to his job as a freelance illustrator specialising in drawing crowd scenes for numerous clients. Each picture takes Martin months to draw. “As I work my way through a picture, I add Wally when I come to what I feel is a good place to hide him,” he explains.
