PATRICK MAKIN’S first job as a writer was as a war correspondent in Yemen. When he decided that being shot at isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, he moved to Bristol and cut his teeth working as a script-editor for Aardman Animations. No matter what the subject, he likes to bring a light touch to everything he writes.
WHOOLI CHEN works with a delicate palette and sensitive painterly layers that takes whimsical illustration to another realm. Whooli studied an MA in Illustration at the University of the Arts London, where she found a muse in an urban street fox.
