An Introduction:
My name is Oliver Lake.
Welcome to my Patreon page: www.patreon.com/iotabooks

I'm a professional illustrator who has had numerous children's books published, including the award-winning storybook Mr Rabbit, Frog Fight written by Julia Donaldson and the Les Petites Fairytales series of baby board books.

Children's books are something that I am undeniably passionate about and committed to, with over 10 years experience of having books published in collaboration with other writers.  More recently I have started to work on my own self initiated books with some success.

About Out In The Wild:
Out In The Wild is a self published children's book that was first available in 2016. The book was received well initially, which has meant that for the past few years I've been able to finance the publishing costs through sales of the book and my illustration commissions.

Fast forward to 2018... The cost of self publishing went up and things gradually slowed down. As it stands today, I can no longer financially afford to cover the publishing costs for this book.
