Join illustrator Martin Brown to celebrate 30 horrible years of the world’s bestselling children’s history series. Expect savage stories, gruesome games, foul facts and deadly drawings. Find out the best worst bits of history from brand new book Horrible Histories: The Worst in the World and pick up some wicked drawing tips as Martin guides you through a world of history and how he creates cracking cartoons to bring the facts fully and foully to life.
Martin Brown is the cartoonist illustrator of the hugely successful Horrible Histories series. He trained to be an art teacher in his home town of Melbourne before realising it was way too much like hard work and landed a job as a stage-hand in the television studios of the ABC. Then, following many Australian footsteps abroad, Martin ended up in London where his lifetime dream of becoming a cartoonist was realised.
After working on magazines and greetings cards, he was picked up by various children’s book publishers where his drawing style and sense of humour found a home. He was asked to team up with another writer on a new project due to be called Horrible Histories. Thirty years, sixty titles, and twenty million copies sold later, Terry Deary and Martin’s books have become a phenomenon, expanding into the award winning BBC TV programme, exhibitions, games, and stage shows.
