His most recent investigation examines all the different species of mammal that have evolved on planet Earth. You can read all about his extraordinary discoveries in the What On Earth? Explorer Journal series.He works closely with a team of editors and researchers at What On Earth? HQ, to produce beautifully illustrated and wonderfully informative books.
Andy Forshaw graduated with a BA in graphic design and illustration from London's Central St. Martins College. In 2010, Andy and Christopher teamed up to found What on Earth Publishing with a view to establishing new ways of making big history accessible to all ages. Andy has since individually created more than 5,000 illustrations that are featured in the range of What on Earth? timelines. When not illustrating, Andy can be found exploring the countryside on his bike.


From a review of Bugs!: "It simply sings to info-philes and visual learners alike. With parallel timelines for all continents, developments on land, sky and sea, more than a thousand illustrations, it is a superlative mastery of design and research, a treat to eye and brain alike."

"In this engaging launch to a series of books with fold-out timelines, Eric Eagle, senior librarian of the Eagle-Eyed Explorer Club, is tasked with taking an expedition into prehistory to explore and document dinosaur life. Forshaw ... works in an accessible style that blends naturalistic and cartoony details ... The six-foot-long timeline chronicles dinosaur life from the Triassic Period through our current Cenozoic Era. A strong choice for visual learners and information-seekers." - Publishers Weekly

"An exciting purchase for libraries looking for high-interest nonfiction that covers both dinosaurs and career interests." - School Library Journal

"An excellent resource for dino-dedicated kids, this new title in What on Earth Publishing's fold-out timeline series explores the history of dinosaurs, from their emergence in the Triassic period 240 million years ago through their eventual extinction ... A worthwhile, informative, and fun resource for young students and anyone intrigued by these mind-boggling creatures that once roamed this planet." - Parent's Choice Awards Silver Honor
