Ian Morris is a young, energetic illustrator with a Masters in Illustration from Manchester School of Art.


Growing up in ‘sunny’ Manchester, Ian finds inspiration from observing the charming characters of his hometown, believing it gives great authenticity to his illustrative voice.


Upon graduating from his BA in 2017, Ian was recognised by the Association of Illustrators in their Top Upcoming Image Makers. He is a regular contributor to Prospect Magazine, providing illustrations for their Upfront article spread.

Ian's debut picture book 'The Library Book' written by Gabby Dawnay, best-selling author of the 'If I Had...' books. Will be published on the 4th May 2021 by Thames & Hudson.
