Rob Scotton studied at Leicester Polytechnic. He lives in Rutland with his wife, Liz, who is also an artist. Rob only had to look out of his studio window to find the inspiration for Russell the Sheep. The rolling countryside surrounding his home is brimming with sheep, other wildlife, sheep, rural beauty and more sheep!
Praise for Love, Splat: "This heart-warming story should melt even the flintiest cynic. Scotton's frenetic illustrations are spot on and vivid enough to stroke. Buy this book for anyone you `like more than fish fingers and ice-cream'..." Daily Mail "A very sweet story, beautifully illustrated." Norwich Evening News Praise for `Russell the Sheep': `Russell the Sheep is completely engaging and bound to become a star of the future.' The Bookseller `This is the delicious tale of a sheep who can't sleep.' Daily Express
