About Dan Green

Artist and designer Simon Basher has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich color palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy Manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty!

Dan Green has written many of the titles in the Basher Science series. He studied Geology at Cambridge University. Dr Mark Lythgoe is Director for the Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging at University College London, where he develops imaging techniques for investigating brain and cardiac function. He is also Director of the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK and, in 2005, received a Biosciences Federation Communication Award for his outstanding contribution to science communication. Mark combines science and art to engage with the public and increase interaction between these fields. He has produced many sci/art projects and presented several documentary programs for television and radio
