Josh Morgan

Josh Morgan-902Josh Morgan (Te Aitanga-a-Māhaki and Rongowhaakata) lives in Wellington with his three year old daughter, a vast hoard of picture books, and numerous pot plants to which he sings old-school R’n’B and folk tunes. 
A freelance illustrator and designer, his work has included illustrating for picture books, school resources, band posters, album covers, and other promotional work, as well as completing a Bachelor of Design at Massey University.  His illustrations are largely created digitally by cutting out, collaging and drawing over scanned textures in Photoshop, and his ultimate aim is to emulate the warmth, charm and magic of the classic picture books he grew up with.
