Ed Emberley

Multi-award winning children’s book writer and illustrator best known for his ‘how to draw’-style books. He is also a cycling enthusiast. He works with his family in developing his books. When I first saw Emberley’s work – especially the ‘Make a World’ book – I was really excited, and was sure I wanted to include him. Later on though, I realised that I didn’t like the way it encourages one single way of drawing things, and the lack of imagination that breeds. This ‘world’ is based around vehicles, jobs and buildings. It is not ‘Make a World’, it is ‘Make Our World’. Scribbling is not allowed.
