Towards the end of the last millennium Simon Cooper graduated from Dundee College of Art and headed for swinging London with his crayons and his portfolio.
Since then he has contributed regularly to a wide variety of publications and has illustrated many children’s books including the successful ‘Eek! Stories To Make You Shriek!’ series for Macmillan books and the award winning ‘The Ghost Of Uncle Arvie’. He has worked on a number of BBC websites and has written and illustrated several cartoon strips, among them the long running ‘Petrol Shop Boys’.
He currently lives in the Yorkshire countryside with his family, some of whom share his love of loud music and Swansea City FC.
