Lynne Hudson is a published author/illustrator and trained at Bath Academy of Art in Ceramics, England, and then The College of Cartoon Art, England, mentored under the late Dave Fellows who inspired her to illustrate children’s books.

She has a fast-moving, comic-book style with an expressive sense of character and is a keen writer of rhyming stories.

Her biggest writing inspiration has been Dr Seuss, and she admires the illustrations of Dick Bruna and Tony Ross. Sniff, her first children’s picture book, was published by Hogsback.

Lynne gets most of her ideas by observing the Great British public. She is often found pulling silly faces in the mirror, trying to find the right facial expression for her characters.

Her ambition is to someday create a really iconic cartoon character. Thingamanose, a highly illustrated cartoon-style chapter book staring the eponymous ‘Thingamanose’ for children, published by Beachy Books in 2020, could well be it!

That’s My Cat!, her children’s colour picture book, is Lynne’s latest, published by Beachy Books in 2021.
