My name's Robbie Cathro, an Illustrator & Storyteller living in Bristol, UK, working from my studio in The Island. I love to make fun, colourful and charismatic work whether that's for a lively children's magazine, an editorial piece or even for stories of my own invention.  With my work I hope to create a playful composition that translates the mood and atmosphere of the work I'm illustrating!
