Hailing from Essex, Gary graduated from Harrow College (University of Westminster) with a degree in Illustration in 1992. After discovering the hidden world of small press comics, he took the plunge with his own comics creating various titles such as "Great!", "Little Box of Comics" and "Stupidmonsters".
In 2002 he jumped head-first into the deep end of children's publishing with the position of in-house illustrator at Eaglemoss Publications, working for five years on projects such as Horrible Histories, Horrible Science and The Magical World Of Roald Dahl.
From February 2004 his strip Derek The Sheep began appearing regularly in the Beano. Derek is the Beano's first and only creator-owned property. In 2008 a collection of Derek the Sheep stories was published by Bloomsbury and in France as Norbert Le Mouton, by L'edition de L'an 2.
He has since written and drawn popular comic strips for many top notch publications including The Dandy and The DFC and currently knocks out regular strips for the brilliant Phoenix Comic Weekly in the form of Gary's Garden, plus an award winning monthly comic strip for National Geographic Kids UK.
He has a brand new children's graphic novel called The Terrible Tales of the Teenytinysaurs out from Walker books.
