Hello, I’m Andrew Gardner; a life-long doodler with a love of silly humour, Japanese culture and fantasy creatures. I’ve always had passion for both drawing & storytelling, and after a decade working as a designer & creative in the advertising industry I decide to pursue a long-held goal; to illustrate children's picture books, and maybe even write my own one day.

In the summer of 2017 I joined the artist roster of the prestigious Bright Agency, and since then I've illustrated several early reader & educational titles for a selection of publishers, including Oxford University Press, Igloo Books, Rising Stars and Scholastic. I'm currently illustrating my first trade picture book for Andersen Press.

I balance my illustration work with my current day-job as Senior Art Director at Amazon, London.
