The untold story of ecoman, the guy behind ecostore

The untold story of ecoman, the guy behind ecostore (video)

Posted On September 6th, 2013


Ahi wrote and illustrated a little book called ‘ecoman the untold story’ for a Fathers day gift a few years back which is still much loved by her Dad, Malcolm Rands aka ecoman and we think you’ll love it too. Take a look at our beautiful animated video, it’ll only take a minute and we promise it’ll make you smile.

Malcolm’s also just written his own book too called Ecoman, and in it he shares some personal stories from the past, like this one:

I was very shy as a child. I wasn’t like the other kids, and I was painfully aware of that fact. I was the kind of kid who was caught up in his own fantasy world. Despite being slightly dyslexic I was an early reader, and I had a taste for history, adventure and warfare, and then, when I discovered Tolkien, for fantasy and, later, science fiction. I wasn’t sporty. Being different is no asset when you’re a kid.

If you’d like to read a bit more about Malcolm’s book, take a look here.
