There’s not much Tom McLaughlin hasn’t tried in the world of writing and illustrating. He has worked as a political cartoonist for The Western Morning News, an animation designer for a number of TV shows, worked on collaborative illustrations for authors and his own solo projects, and has been published by some of the top publishing houses in the industry, including Bloomsbury, Puffin, Scholastic, OUP and Walker. His books have been nominated for countless awards and have been translated into over 10 different languages so he is well-placed to run the online Doodle Do-It, quick sketching classes to help us all improve our drawing.
