Wayne McLoughlin is a Welsh-born artist who dedicates his drawings to nature. He began as a young explorer in Hampstead Heath, London, and later, in the swamps of northern Florida. McLoughlin first worked on creating illustrated humor parodies for national magazines, including Esquire, Omni, Next, Yankee, and National Lampoon. He made many illustrations for Citibank, Ford Motor Company, IBM, Motorola, Adidas, Texaco, MasterCard, the National Geographic Society, Audubon, Scientific American, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Nature Museum at Grafton, Vermont. His drawings can now be found in outdoor magazines such as Sports Afield and Sporting Tales, as well as many books and publications that focus on animals and aspects of nature, such as the bestselling Warriors novel series and now also the Seekers series.
