Jethro.


The adventure in which the protagonist publishes a picture book.

I illustrate.

Jethro. Illustrator, living and making in Bournemouth.


I illustrate to inspire. My stories encourage children to dream big dreams, and remind adults that they really can do anything!

My desire is to tell more stories of wild adventures from around the world, to make stories that can be touched and interacted with, stories that can be lived and stories that can challenge the way we think.

I love stories.

  • Adventures are my third most favourite thing.
  • I want to make your bespoke greetings card! Say Hi.
  • Follow my illustrated stories on Instagram.
  • Why do we build castles out of sand yet, men out of snow: Do you know?
  • Yeah, I've got dreadlocks.

The best projects start with a conversation.
