Peggy Fortnum was the very first person to draw Paddington. She was commissioned to illustrate the very first book ‘A Bear Called Paddington’ and went on to illustrate the rest of the novels in the series. Although her wonderfully distinctive pen and ink drawings were originally done in black and white, some of her work has subsequently been coloured by other artists, including her own niece, Caroline Nuttal-Smith.
