The Talent Steve Wood Biography

Steven Wood is a Children’s illustrator represented by Advocate Art, illustration agency. Steven, was originally a cloth hat wearing, whippet loving Yorkshire boy, but is now living with his other half and fellow illustrator/cheese stealer in North London.

Steven has a degree in Illustration and originally worked in-house at several large book publishers, but finally decided to make the push and become a full time freelance illustrator. Steven’s work has been published on websites, advertising campaigns, and a wide range of children’s books including picture books, activity books and educational books

Steven’s work normally includes scenes based in reality, but full of fun and silliness. Most of the work is created digitally in Photoshop and Illustrator with emphasis on texture and beautifully detailed type. However Steven still enjoys pen and ink drawing, especially for maps (with monsters on).

In his spare time Steven ‘enjoys’ making all the tea in the house, pretending he hasn’t eaten all the biscuits, reading books for big and little people, watching films, and anything on TV with a ball in it.
