I’m Louise Forshaw aka Munkey Pants!

I'm an illustrator (and sometimes author) living in a small town in the North East just outside Newcastle.

I work from home in my small studio (and from my sofa with the TV on in the background) being supervised by 3 noisy, mischievous office assistants. Who are a constant source of inspiration!

 

I discovered drawing at a young age and have rarely stopped since! My childhood was spent watching cartoons,

creating my own characters, watching more cartoons and drawing comics to give to my favourite teachers.

 

I graduated in 2008 with a BA (Hons) in Illustration and Animation from Newcastle College. After graduating, I spent a lot of time doing placements at various design companies and volunteering at a local Gallery. This gave me the opportunity to showcase my work and work alongside other artists such as Simon Donald, co-founder of the British comic magazine Viz.

 

I signed with Advocate Art in 2012 and have spent most of my time drawing my favourite things and working with

lots of lovely publishers!
