Join children’s book author and illustrator Tom Percival for a whistle-stop tour of his creative journey to date. Tom will talk about his process, his inspirations, how to improve your practice and the challenges to be faced in a career based on creativity. He will also try to answer any questions that you have. So come along armed with curiosity and all of your questions about a career in children’s book writing and illustration.
Tom Percival writes and illustrates all sorts of children’s books. He has produced cover illustrations for the Skulduggery Pleasant series, written and illustrated the Little Legends, the Dream Defenders series, as well as twelve picture books. His Big Bright Feelings picture book series includes the Kate Greenaway-nominated Ruby’s Worry, as well as Perfectly Norman and Ravi’s Roar, and has been translated into twenty one languages. In 2020 he created the animation Goodbye Rainclouds for BBC Children in Need.
He lives in Gloucestershire with his partner and their two children. Tom has been drawing since he’s been able to hold a pencil, and making up stories for as long as he can remember.
