Peter Cross (born 1951)

From 1975, Peter Cross began to emerge as an illustrator of great originality, making his name with books that continue to delight children and adults alike. Unwilling to restrict his fertile imagination to two dimensions, he also created a series of eccentric cabinets of curiosities. Such richness and variety were then directed towards advertising and, in particular, to delightful work for the company Wine Rack. Cross’s dry, yet charming visual-verbal wit has reached a wide international public through designs for greetings cards, first for Gordon Fraser (Hallmark 1995-2000) and then for The Great British Card Company.

Peter Cross was born in Guildford and educated at Parkside, East Horsley, and at Ewell Castle. At first he worked as a technical illustrator for Hawker Siddley, but from 1975 he set up his own studio and began to emerge as an imaginative illustrator of great originality.
