Uncomfortable calling himself an illustrator and feeling a fraud when referred to as a designer, Neil Gower settled on graphic artist. Bill Bryson insists he is a genius; Neil is not so sure. On a tour through his extensive portfolio of work, he reflects on taking hand-drawn images into the digital age, how fear of the demise of print has made this a great time to be a book designer, and the thrill he still gets from making marks appear…
