Curtis Jobling is the designer of worldwide hit children's television show 'Bob the Builder', and the author/illustrator of numerous children’s books. He lives with his wife, Emma, in Cheshire, England, along with a menagerie of children and pets. Early work on ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Mars Attacks!’ led to Curtis picking up his crayons in 1997 to design the BAFTA winning ‘Bob’.
