Hello, my name is Gabriel Evans and I’m an Australian children’s book author and illustrator from Western Australia (WA).

With a coffee in hand, I spend my day drawing, painting and making picture books.

Working in watercolour and pencil I’ve made books that have sold internationally and been translated into three languages.

Welcome and enjoy browsing my books, illustrations and sketches – ideally with your own coffee in hand.


Norton and the Bear
Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? Or is it just annoying? Follow Norton as he attempts to avoid a bear who starts copying his appearance.
My next picture book is out with award winning indie publisher, Berbay.

The Cute Penguin
The penguin doesn’t just want to be cute – he wants to look like a REAL penguin. But is there anything a drawing can do to change what they are?
My latest picture book is out with Hardie Grant Egmont.

Ollie and Augustus
In a sweet story full of visual humour, first-day-of-school worries take on a new weight when Ollie’s best (and furriest) friend must stay at home.
The Candlewick edition of my picture book is out now in the USA.


Upcoming release – Blue Flower

A gentle exploration of a child’s realisation that it is her individual differences and creativity that make her special. A beautifully told picture book about self esteem, resilience and the discovery that being different can be something wonderful.
This is my first collaboration with award-winning author Sonya Hartnett and is released with Penguin Australia in March 2021.
