I am an illustrator that has been doing work in both publishing and licensing. I have illustrated a book, Cats for Western Publishing and have also done two educational books, Ponds and Plants for Evan Moore Publications. I have been doing some writing and illustrating together and am represented for books by Ronnie Herman. I have also been licensing images and am represented by JMS Licensing for product. I have also worked as an art director for Greeting Cards and Gift Bags. I love children's books and have an extensive collection of my favorites. I work in both oils and watercolors...

John Shelley began his illustration career in London, his first picture book being shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award. From 1987 he lived in Tokyo, where his work has been used in everything from advertising to character merchandising and editorial, while his children's book illustrations have been published in countries around the globe.
Most of his work is based around hand-drawn pen and ink images, though techniques range from traditional line and watercolour to graphic images utilising computers.
