Nick Sharratt, the man behind the instantly recognisable illustrations for Jacqueline Wilson’s Tracy Beaker books and other much-loved characters from the hundreds of books he has written and illustrated, is the subject of this colourful, humorous and hands-on exhibition.
Exploring Nick’s passion for drawing, from childhood to his current status as an internationally renowned illustrator and author, the show features many of the well-known characters that Nick has illustrated over the years, including Tracy Beaker, Billy Bonkers, Daisy, Hetty Feather, Caveman Dave and Pirate Pete, as well as a host of animals, and vast quantities of food and clothing.
