Hello, my name is Alan.
I live in Limerick, Ireland, and I like drawing and robots. I also like drawing robots.
I’m an illustrator and designer and am entirely self-taught.
I’ve always loved drawing, especially creating slightly odd characters. When they emerge, I try to give them life; robots, animals, dinosaurs and even people occasionally.
I followed this passion when I did a children’s illustration workshop in Dublin a few years ago. This gave me the momentum to try writing and illustrating for children and I haven’t looked back since.
I’m a dad to three small kids. I don’t have any dogs or cats, though, so that saves a bit of time. Fairy Pirate Princess and Tractorsaurus are my children’s favourites.
I haven’t asked any dogs or cats which ones they like.
