Gabriel Alborozo was born in the UK and raised both there and Australia. He has been working as a cartoonist, illustrator and author ever since selling his first cartoon to Private Eye at the age of 15. Following (or at least trying to) in the footsteps of his hero E.H Shepard, he joined Punch magazine soon after.
In the 30 years since, he has predominantly worked as a children’s writer and illustrator for the likes of Arthur Levine Books, Henry Holts, Walker, Candlewick and Bloomsbury to name but a few.
Dotted through these years he’s also worked as a background artist for animation, travelled to some of the worlds most breathtakingly uncomfortable places as an archaeological illustrator for the British Museum and other institutions, and when he’s not actually drawing he can be found gently hurting himself in the pursuit of learning silversmithing.
He is currently to be found in East Sussex, with his awesome wife, eating chocolate and wishing he had a dog.
