Korky Paul has enjoyed outstanding international success as an award-winning illustrator of children’s books, producing many instantly recognisable and popular characters, such as Winnie the Witch, The Fish Who Could Wish, Professor Puffendorf and Sir Scallywag.

The Winnie and Wilbur series of picture books written by Valerie Thomas and the fiction or chapter books written by Laura Owen have been particularly successful, with a 36th title just released and a new animated television show just about to be be shown on Channel 5.

Korky's work often clearly shows the influence of Heath Robinson’s humorous drawings and so it is appropriate that this, the first solo exhibition of his original work, should be shown at the Heath Robinson Museum. He originally studied fine art at Durban Art School and then film animation at CalArts and began his career in advertising before becoming an illustrator of children’s books. He has sold over 10 million of books world-wide in over thirty five languages. His illustrations are known for their quirky recognisable style which incorporates a huge amount of detail, characterisation and humour loved by children and adults alike.

This exhibition will also give an insight into the process of illustrating and preparing illustrations for publication. Korky Paul unusually kept a complete archive of drawings and other material relating to the development of the illustrations of each book and its publication.
