About Sholto
Drawing quickly and expressively with a traditional ink pen, British children’s illustrator Sholto Walker transfers all the energy and emotion of his approach directly into the colourful characters he creates. From his languid line work to frenetically scratched-in detail, there’s an immediacy to his work that instantly engages the viewer and pulls them into the story he’s illustrating.
