Dave Watland is FUNKLAND WORLD's illustrator and the mastermind behind bringing Stanley and friends to life!
As I write this, I sit in my favourite coffee spot drinking a Gibraltar with a shot of whip. My friends think I drink coffee all day, that is not entirely true, I’ve been working hard on our first book, Stanley the Walrus, these past few months, to be released April 9th. Pre-order your copy now!
Having said that, much of my illustrating happens with a hint of coffee on my lips. 🙂 Lately, I’ve been putting the finishing touches on our second book, Brenda the Ballerina Polar Bear.
I think you’re going to like Brenda, she has confidence in who she is, mixed with a bit of awkwardness and oddly enough, a whole lot of gracefulness. To be a polar bear and a ballerina, you have to be quite special and Brenda is just that. If you’ve enjoyed Stanley the Walrus, you're really going to fall in love with Brenda!
