Justin Todd studied painting at Wimbledon College of Art and illustration at The Royal College and was tutor in illustration at Brighton College of Art in the 1960s alongside John Vernon Lord and Raymond Briggs. He exhibited in the Morley Gallery inaugural exhibition and is best known for his illustrations of many children’s classics. He was invited by Bawden to help him draw up his designs and reported that Bawden ‘let me have one panel of my own as a reward’.
