About The Author

Martin Handford began his career as a freelance illustrator specialising in drawing crowd scenes. The turning point came when he was asked to create a book showcasing his impressive talent. From this the character Wally was born -- originally to provide a link between each scene. Each Wally picture takes Martin at least eight weeks to draw. Over 42 million Wally books sold worldwide, in 33 countries --have you found Wally yet?

"Each square is a delight of individuality, each spread a dynamic interplay... Glorious fun for puzzlers of all ages." The School Librarian"

Martin Handford

Martin Handford spent much of his childhood drawing and his earliest influences were cinema epics and playing with toy soldiers. At art college he continued to draw what he calls "busy and militarily correct battle scenes" which led to his job as a freelance illustrator specialising in drawing crowd scenes for numerous clients. Martin now gathers his inspiration from a huge variety of sources; films, visiting museums and art galleries, reading comics and books, and collecting ephemera and trivia. He is fascinated by crowds, and is attracted to their vibes, patterns and details - especially humour; "I love their movement and energy." He is also constantly on the look out for puns and wordplay that can be used in his pictures. Gradually, from all this meticulous research, the inspiration for a picture emerges, which Martin embellishes with his own ideas to create astonishing scenes. Each picture takes Martin months to draw. "As I work my way through a picture, I add Wally when I come to what I feel is a good place to hide him," he explains.
