Richard Collingridge

Book for an event

Richard Collingridge was born in London, studied Illustration at the University of the West of England, graduating in 2008, and now lives in Paris.

At about the age of five Richard noticed that real people didn't look like a bunch of sticks with a circle on the top. But to his amazement, no one else in his classroom, including the teachers, seemed to be able to see this. So with this secret in mind, he decided that when he grew up, he wanted to draw pictures for a living.

He has always enjoyed creating different worlds and universes for his non-stick people, and after illustrating book covers and other people's stories, he decided to put some words next to his own drawings. This seemed to work rather well and resulted in Richard's stunning d├ębut picture book, When it Snows.
