Distance at Manchester Home Open Exhibition 2022!

Book Illustration for Arthur Bostrom - Good Moaning!

"I’d long been an admirer of John Cooper’s artwork, so when I needed an illustrator for my first book, John was my first choice. His work was always inventive, and often greatly improved on my original ideas. He can work fast, to a deadline, and can adapt quickly to a change of plan. Working with […]
