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 next weekend it's a good time to think before you buy.
In this scene of my book, Captain Polo and his friend Penguin have chosen their costumes for the Halloween party they've been invited to. Polo is to go as Frankenstein, Penguin will go as a skeleton. Great outfits!
But they come at a price, as our friends here discover.
The true price of course is not measured in currency: the fashion industry alone accounts for more than 5% of the greenhouse gases warming the planet. This is more than the global aviation and shipping industries combined! Think before you go out and get that fancy dress costume.
This story book for kids is a great way to start them thinking about sustainability, and you'll find it will actually spark their natural creativity to make their own costumes using recycled garments and objects around the house. The book is available now on Amazon in Kindle and paperback versions.
