ITEM: Three signed books in the ‘Stinky & Jinks’ hamster series along with an original signed sketch of Stinky the hamster by Mark A Chambers.
BIO: Mark was born in Aberdeen on a cold and windy day in 1980 and shortly afterwards moved to warmer climates down south in rural Lincolnshire. Although he wanted to be a golfer, chef, fighter pilot and master Lego builder (not all at the same time) he found that his skills were much more suited to becoming a professional doodler. Mark graduated with a degree in Illustration from University of Lincoln in 2003 and Bright Group International started to represent him a few months later.
Since joining Bright, Mark has managed to secure picture book deals with publishers such as Little Tiger Press, Simon & Schuster, Usborne, Bloomsbury, Knopf and Random House. He was selected to illustrate the ‘Animal Adventure’ area at ZSL London Zoo, is the illustrator for the popular ‘Stinky & Jinks’ series published by Templar and is also part of the ‘Bear With Me’ traveling sketchbook project. His book ‘Noisy Bottoms’ has recently been shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013.
