Martin Brown

Best selling illustrator and author Martin Brown was born and raised in Australia and spends most of his free time doodling and drawing. Then, with food and water, he grew up, moved to the UK, and got the job of his dreams – doodling and drawing. He’s best known for his illustrations of the Horrible Histories books, and for writing and illustrating Lesser Spotted Animals and Lesser Spotted Animals 2.

In his video exclusively for the Buckinghamshire History Festival, Martin not only draws, but regales us with grimy tales of body lice, and poop-tastic Aylesbury Ducks, and champions the plight of lesser spotted animals. Kids – big and small – can learn to master the art of drawing, while picking up lots of animal facts along the way. Creative and funny fun for everyone!
