David Melling

David grew up in London. As a child he loved drawing and his dad, who was a sculptor, would often help with the difficult bits. He studied Art in London and Photography in Blackpool. In the mid eighties he returned to London and started work as a freelance illustrator but soon found himself working in animation studios: drawing backgrounds, assisting animators and rendering cells for TV commercials and a handful of TV films including Father Christmas by Raymond Briggs, Grandpa by John Burningham and Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. It wasn’t until the early nineties that David turned his attention to children’s books. “When I started drawing pictures for books I knew this was for me. I love drawing characters, bringing them to life and letting them tell a story. I have done other jobs over the years but making up stories with pen and paper is by far the best.”
