John Shelley

Profile: Born in Birmingham, UK, John Shelley studied illustration under Tony Ross in Manchester then began a career as an illustrator in London, co-founding Facade Art Studios and working extensively in editorial and publishing.

His first major picture book the Secret in the Matchbox was shortlisted for the 1989 Mother Goose Award in the UK, and received a Parent's Choice Award in the US. Fascinated by Japanese art, Shelley moved to Tokyo in 1987 and quickly established himself in the commercial illustration market.

In addition he has continued to illustrate over 30 children's books for both Western and Japanese markets. Shelley is a committee member of JAGDA (Japan Graphic Designers Association), stands on the SCBWI Board of Advisors, and is the Illustrator Coordinator of SCBWI Tokyo.
