Since first seeing illustrations in his primary school textbooks, Darren wanted to become a ‘good drawer’. Copying Garfield comics and creating monsters were amongst his first steps on the path towards this goal.
Based in Melbourne, and with another fun job as a graphics and motion designer for e-learning, Darren enjoys bringing both animate and inanimate objects to life in illustrations filled with colour, humour and expression.
His work has been published in a number of children’s books and educational resources, both printed and online. In various forms from books to cushions, Darren’s illustrative work has been printed, hung, worn, carried, held and hugged.
