Sam Garton graduated from Derby University in 2005 with a BA Hons in illustration. He now spends pretty much every spare minute he has on illustration of one type or another. His current obsession is with otters, and in particular one little character he's been working on for a while..
Otter is an innocent little thing who lives with Otter Keeper, and Teddy (her loyal companion who more often than not takes the blame when things go wrong). The stories are aimed at children and adults alike. Otter's world is a confusing little place for her, and while children will empathise with some of her naivety, adults can chuckle along with Otter Keeper's frustrations at her simplistic views on life.
To find out more about Otter, and follow her stories make sure you visit www.iamotter.co.uk. These works are created from original pen and pencil drawings, coloured using a mixture of traditional watercolours and digital techniques."
