Jess Bradley


Jess is an illustrator, comic artist and writer living in Torquay, Devon with her husband and son. She has been drawing for as long as she can remember and after almost deciding to become a make-up special FX artist, realised that she enjoyed making comic and books a little bit more.

Jess draws and writes for The Phoenix Comic and has appeared in over 300 issues. She also writes weekly for The Beano and contributes comic strips to the RSPB and RNLI's supporters magazines. In 2021 she won a Blue Peter Book Award for her work on A Day In The Life of a Poo, a Gnu and You and displays her badge proudly on her pencil case.

Jess works from her home studio and also enjoys filling up sketchbooks with doodles of gherkins and turnips, reading and watching horror films. Comics, cartoons and video games have been a huge influence on her work and she now gets to share her interests with her six year-old son, who beats her at most video games because she taught him too well.
