Ashley Crowley's earliest memories of the police force were visiting his uncle's police station and having his fingerprints taken, visiting the cells, and playing in the police cars. Although he received his BA in graphic design and worked in London at Arena and GQ magazines as a junior designer, he eventually pursued a career as a police officer just like Officer Panda. However, his passion for art has never subsided, and he recently earned his MA in children's book illustration at Cambridge School of Art. Ashley now lives in beautiful Suffolk, United Kingdom, with his little boy, Frankie. You can visit him at www.ashleycrowley.com.
