Just over a quarter of a century ago, a boy called Jago arrived here on Earth with a burning ambition to be… Superman, Indiana Jones, or quite possibly King Arthur.
After much hard work and an awful lot of drawing he settled on his fourth choice of career, illustrating children's books, something he reckons he could be quite good at one day.
When he's not feverishly constructing illustrations on his clockwork computer Jago can be found merman- like in the sea at Polzeath where he terrifies tourists with his lack of surfboard control.
He lives in a slightly damp wetsuit in Cornwall with his fantastically lovely wife Alex and beautiful daughter, Lily Peach.
