Luke is an illustrator living on the sunny northern beaches of Sydney.
Ever since he first discovered he had opposable thumbs Luke wanted to be a ‘drawer’. As a little kid he fell in love with the illustrations in the picture books he would read over and over again. When his head wasn’t stuck in a book, he loved to disappear into the bush or beach and discover the myriad Australian animals that lived there.
Now as a much older (and hairier) illustrator, Luke's inner child still lives on as he brings the same Australian animals to life in the images and stories he creates.
We are very excited to feature some of Luke's original designs exclusively for Toucan.
