The Lunatics behind Luna-Tikes!
Richard Tillman created Luna-Tikes while raising Augustus “Gus” and his little brother Jake “Jake”, who are the life and spirit behind these inspiring stories and illustrations.
Meet the Illustrator!
The Luna-Tikes illustrator is Jamie Sale. Jamie is a British Illustrator who has established himself online as a freelancer. He has worked closely with large corporations and small businesses over the years and has become the go-to man for a vast range of illustration work. Jamie has two small Luna-Tikes himself. He uses them as inspiration when drawing the characters and for all of their quirks and expressions. Francine and Frankie almost mirror Jamie’s children exactly.
