Pip yearns for the uncomfortable, unease, dissatisfaction and daily refreshes the irritation. He believes that there is no such thing as a difficult person – only difficult behaviour.
Ian Long is an illustrator who has worked with Pip all of his adult life, drawing, creating and visualizing ideas that they have imagined together since the early 1980’s. He has been a youth and pastoral worker in Gloucestershire, a primary school teacher in West Sussex and Hampshire, a carer for his father who suffered with Alzheimer’s and is now working full time upon books.
As well as creating numerous Blob books, he is currently translating the Bible into a no word book, the Blob Visual Bible, so that it can be used around the world, by people with no literacy, as well as children, adults with special needs and churches from all nations.
He is married to Jane, and they have two beautiful adult daughters.
