Instantly recognisable for his spontaneous and unaffected manner of drawing, illustrator Korky Paul is best known for his multi-million selling picture books for children, from The Fish Who Could Wish to the beloved characters Winnie the Witch and Wilbur the cat.
Born in 1951 in Zimbabwe to a family of seven children, Korky Paul enjoyed a wild and privileged childhood in the African bush veldt – and read a lot of American comic books. He studied Fine Art at Durban Art School, South Africa and worked in advertising for many years before moving into illustration.
