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 making heartfelt and humorous picture books in pencil and watercolour.

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

A Friend for George

George likes living by the sea, but he often feels lonely. He’d like to have a friend – someone to talk to, someone to share stories with and someone to laugh with. As that’s what friends do!

A charming and heart-warming story about finding a friend and discovering what friendship and being a truly good friend is all about.

“Gabriel Evans is fast becoming one of the most consistently delightful Australian picture book creators of recent years.”
