Having successfully built his very own bakery, Philip Edwards has since turned his eye to other creative pursuits. Apprenticing at a local publishing company led to his first book, Moby Dick, and his very first collaboration with illustrator by Adam Horsepool. The duo teamed up again to round out the adventure series with King Arthur and Robin Hood.
Adam Horsepool, an avid doodler since childhood, always dreamed of making a career out of his passion for art. He pursued his dream and graduated from the University of Lincoln (UK) with a degree in animation, which jumpstarted his career as an illustrator and made him fall in love with concept art.
