Sam Hearn

Sam Hearn started illustrating children's books around 2003, when he drew pictures for Violet and the Mean and Rotten Pirates, written by Richard Hamilton.

More recent titles include Hero and the Sinking Ships by Richard Hamilton, the Charlie series by Hilary Mckay, and Meerkat Madness by Ian Whybrow.

Sam lives in West London and works with a bunch of creative types in a rickety old studio near the river Thames.
