Ask Huw Aaron
Where are you from?
I'm a Swansea Jack, but have now settled in Cardiff. I'm married to Luned, and we have two girls, Eos and Olwen. I'm a cartoonist, artist and children’s author.
Where did your interest in drawing come from?
I can't remember a time when I wasn’t drawing cartoons, creating silly stories and doodling characters from the books I was reading at the time. I'm so thankful (and still surprised) that this is now my day job – I never thought it would be possible when I was growing up.
What have you been working on for Welsh Language Music Day?
I have re-booted the characters Seren and Sbarc, and created a short comic, as well as an animated music video to go with a new song by Osain Huw from Candelas, and Casia Wiliam. I had a blast!
To create stories full of humour, warmth and wonder.
