Simon Brooksby Drew (born 1952)

Simon Drew has combined his zoological training, his skill as a draughtsman, and his inventive approach to languages to create a unique and highly popular comic art.

Simon Drew was born in Reading on 9 October 1952, and was educated locally at Bradford College, Berkshire. After reading Zoology at Exeter University, he trained as a teacher at Reading University and taught for five years in West Sussex. In 1981, he established his own gallery in Dartmouth for the sale of illustrations, paintings and the work of studio potters, which – since 1985 – has been short-listed by the British Crafts Council for its high standards.
A Book of Bestial Nonsense appeared in 1986 and set the tone for a series of books that marry delightful images of mainly wildlife subjects with quirky, punning captions. He has regularly produced work for Friends of the Earth, including posters and stage designs.

The latest of his many books, published by Antique Collectors' Club, include the
Wisdom of Wine (2014) and Fowl, Fleas and Fancy Fauna (2015). The Very Worst of Simon Drew is scheduled to appear in 2016.
