Alex Crump

Alex is a freelance artist/illustrator who lives with his young family (and pets!) on the outskirts of Swindon. With over 25 published books, his usual commissions are for bold and colourful animals getting up to all sorts of capers. Past careers as a teacher, zookeeper (as well as other current roles of storyteller and museum educator) allow him to bring plenty of knowledge and ideas to the work he creates. Some of his more memorable commissions have been working with the Great Bustard Group (on Salisbury plain) where he survived a face to face encounter with ‘Fergus’ the flightless ‘Tigerbird’ and having his work on snakebite education adopted by local governments in India.

Featured work: The Conference of the Birds
