Thiago de MoraesDownload Portfolio (PDF) /
As a child, Thiago got told off constantly for doodling instead of paying attention. He still gets told off constantly, but not so much for the doodling, these days.
After working for twenty years as an award-winning advertising art director and commercial illustrator, Thiago’s first picture book, The Zoomers’ Handbook (written with his wife Ana), was published in 2015 by Andersen Press. In November 2016, the book was named winner of the picture book category at the Sheffield Children’s Book Awards.
Thaigo went on to author illustrate Myth Atlas for Alison Green Books in 2018, which was then followed by a sequel called History Atlas that was published in September 2020. Another collaboration with Ana, The Night Bear published by Anderson Press was out in May 2019. Thiago then wrote and illustrated, A Mummy Ate My Homework, which was published by Scholastic in August 2020!
He lives in London.
