John Shelley – New picture book

Here’s an image from a new picture ‘The Halloween Forest’, which will be released later this year by Holiday House in the US. It’s a rollicking seasonal book in rhyme with the reader as the central character on a spooky trick-or-treat journey into a dark forest.¬†Loads of fun to work on.

John Shelley

I debuted as an illustrator in London, then worked for 21 years in Tokyo before returning once more to the UK in 2008. My commercial work in Japan has been used in animated TV ads, poster and press campaigns, character merchandising and editorial illustration. For several years I was vice-chairman of the International Committee of JAGDA (Japan Graphic Designer Association). I still maintain close connections to Japan.

Of the 50 or so children’s books I’ve illustrated five were written by myself. Publisher clients have been chiefly the UK, Japan and the USA, but I’ve also worked with clients in Europe and Australia.
