Matt Spink is an author and illustrator who loves to doodle and lives by the sea. He also runs a busy creative department at a leading advertising company in London, and to top that off has three young children, who are his main inspiration. He has pile upon pile of kid's books stacked up around his house and probably enjoys reading them more than his daughters! His love of great design and doodling birds helped him to create Some Birds, his debut picture book. Matt plays rhythm guitar in his band and throws pots on a potter's wheel, as he studied ceramics at university.
