Eric Kincaid
Born in London in 1931, Eric studied illustration and design at Gravesend School of Art where Peter Blake was a contemporary and Quentin Crisp one of the life models. After two years national service and then working in advertising Eric became a comic strip artist where he drew the last Dan Dare story for the Eagle.

In 1971 Eric was offered the chance to fulfill his real ambition to illustrate children’s books when the publishing company, Brimax Books asked him to illustrate a book of Nursery Rhymes. There followed a long and successful relationship with Brimax who commissioned over 100 books from Eric over the next 30 years. These included Wind in the Willows, Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, Oliver Twist, Alice in Wonderland, Aesop’s Fables and anthologies of poetry and nursery rhymes. Eric went on regular book signing tours of America and Canada and regularly attended the Frankfurt Book Fair. His titles have appeared in 14 languages and world-wide sales exceed 8 million copies.

Eric now lives in Dorset where he settled in 1990.
