Based in biodiversity-rich Ecuador, Alan wears several hats: he is an author-illustrator, an educator and a conservation biologist. Alan’s work is inspired by the majesty and fragility of nature and the need to do everything we can to protect it.
Alan combines his artistic creativity with his technical experience and knowledge to create scientifically accurate, educational children’s books full of quirky, comic humour and fun action, and usually bearing a message about how everyone can help preserve Nature.
Alan draws the artwork in his comic or picture books by hand and then edits it all digitally.
He is the author of five educational comic books for middle grade children, among which his main ongoing focus is the Captain Polo series about climate change.
Alan is also the author of 3 climate change-themed picture books for children within the 6-8 age range.

With Halloween coming up I thought I should involve Captain Polo, my main comic book character.
Inspiration for this story was lacking at first: Captain Polo is all about climate change, sustainability. How to tie this in with Halloween?
My teenage son gave me the idea: making your own Halloween costume rather than buying one is actually a form of climate action - it's all about reusing and recycling what we already have lying around the house. Did you know that the clothing industry emits more planet-warming carbon emissions than the aviation and shipping industries combined? Use your imagination and creativity to craft the best Halloween party ever - no need to buy fancy dress stuff!
And that is Captain Polo's message in this children's story.
