Martin Brown is among the most accomplished cartoonists of his generation. Since 1993 Martin has illustrated Horrible Histories, working with author Terry Deary to create one of the best-loved series of children’s books ever published. Underpinning all his work is Martin’s wish to use the power of illustration to entertain and educate, and his belief that everyone should pick up a pencil and draw.
