Alex G Griffiths is an illustrator from London, specializing in children’s picture books and character design. The majority of his work is done by hand, using a combination of pen and ink line work and brush textures in a messy way to create a natural style of illustration. He now lives in Canada with his wife and daughter.

Alex is represented in the UK and US by The Bright Agency.
