After art school, Mike set up his own design group, TWD, in 1970. Five year later after great success he sold up and began a new career writing and illustrating his own books. The Ultimate Alphabet and The Ultimate Noah's Ark were bestsellers and for a while lived in a 13th Century stone mas in the south of France where he was the subject of an award winning documentary on his life and work. Now back in London he continues to produce illustrated books and novels, commissioned commercial illustration work and fine art paintings.
