Passionate about stories, however they are told, Julian is as big a fan of the way a narrative looks as where it takes you. Words and pictures complementing each other are where he's most comfortable - in his day job of advertising, working with Chris, and for his next project bringing the second issue of Chris Smith to the comic world.

An American children’s book publisher had a holiday cottage down a leafy, Wye Valley lane from where Julian and I grew up. I met Maurice Sendak there. And used to speak Double Dutch to him. Apparently he found me amusing.
Now Julian’s the funnier of us two brothers. Figure that.
