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 make picture books that have sold into twelve countries and have been translated into ten languages.

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

Gabriel Evans - Author and Illustrator

Norton and the Borrowing Bear
Wouldn’t it be fun to have a friend living right next door to you? Well, as Norton discovers, it can certainly pose some challenges when that friend wants to borrow all of your favourite things.
A sequel to the shortlisted Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Picture Book of the Year, Norton and the Bear.

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.
Norton and the Bear was a shortlisted book in the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Picture Book of the Year 2021.

Blue Flower
A 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. Released March 2021 with Penguin Australia.

Little One
Pippi loves her special Little One. But one day, she goes missing. Pippi feels lost too, but perhaps she can learn to wonder at the world without Little One by her side.
My first picture book collaboration with award winning author, Jane Godwin.

A Human for Kingsley
Kingsley had decided to own a human. This was not a decision to be taken lightly. After all, owning a human is a responsibility. This is my fourth picture book I’ve both written and illustrated. Released May 2021 with Hardie Grant.
