Dallas's colourful studio

Spreading the love in 2012

We have a crush. A large one. On Dallas Clayton, writer and illustrator of kids’ books and founder of The Awesome World Foundation – a charity that promotes literacy in kids. Dallas became a kids’ writer kind of by default – he wrote a book for his son, put it online and the rest is history. His books – An Awesome Book and An Awesome Book of Thanks – are about dreaming big, about love, hope and appreciation, but not in a cheesy way. They are bursting with colourful illustrations of rainbows, unicorns and skateboards. His new book ‘The Greatest Writer Alive’ is a collection of poetry aimed at adults and includes gems like ‘Endless’ which begins “You should learn to skateboard, it’s cheap and fun”. Check out his website for daily doses of awesomeness.
