Biography of Magnus Weightman, author and illustrator of the children's picture books "Welcome Home, Beaver" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.
Perhaps it was inevitable that Magnus Weightman (Sunderland, 1974) would one day illustrate his own children’s book. Drawing has been a passion since his childhood and it was also the reason he chose to become an architect and urban designer. Becoming a father inspired him to bring his love for drawing, architecture, nature and travel together in his first book. Welcome Home, Beaver! is both a journey of discovery of amazing animal houses and an epic search for home. From his English/Norwegian roots Magnus has now made his family home in Rotterdam.
