As a child, Olly loved escaping life through books into worlds where he would find magic, swords, and ogres. It is a passion that he retains to this day to the amusement of his family and friends. He can regularly be seen with his family at Blaise Castle or the Clifton Suspension Bridge looking for Goram’s chair or Ghyston’s cave, and inventing new stories about the legendary Bristol Giants.
The Bristol Giants helped inspire Olly on his new awesome project with The Adventure Team!
Goram, Ghyston, Avona and Digby would love to hear from you. You can contact them at [email protected] or by using the contact form below.
Tom is a character-driven illustrator and loves creating quirky characters that people can believe in. Humour plays a large part in his picture book work and he likes to keep things lighthearted. Tom was never that sure if Giants existed until he met Olly. Now he spends most of his time searching them out around Bristol so that he can sketch them. See more at www.tombonson.com/.
This is a little video that Konichiwa PR made for as part of a campaign called Act Local.
You may even catch a glance of Digby (the Dog!), who inspired a Dragon!
