Did not want to be expected to create “Indian Art” “I did not find an interest in drawing traditional American Indian cultural icons.

Creator & Illustrator of Where’s Waldo books "My earliest influences were cinema epics and playing with toy soldiers. I attempted to recapture the excitement in my drawings, which started out as crowds of crude stick figures." -Martin Handford Martin was asked to create a book showcasing his talent, and the character Waldo was born to provide a link between each scene. "That’s who Waldo is - an afterthought," he says. "As it turns out, the fans were more interested in the character than in the crowd scenes."
As an artist Martins Wheres Waldo books have been immensely successful 43 million copies worldwide 33 countries 22 languages. "I can’t tell you how pleased I am that Waldo has taken on a life of his own, I’d like to inspire children--to open their minds to explore subjects more--to just be aware of what’s going on around them. I’d like them to see wonder in places that might not have occurred to them."
