Ryan Wheatcroft was born and raised in Sheffield, where he still lives on the outskirts of the city. He spent his childhood making books in old ring binders with borrowed fax machine paper, which began his love for telling stories with words and pictures. The interest in storytelling continued to grow and driven by his passion for illustration and design (especially from the early and middle parts of the last century) he went on to study illustration at the University of Lincoln. Since graduating in 2014 he has worked as an illustrator and he now spends most of his time making pictures for books and magazines.
