Lee Cosgrove is a children’s illustrator from a small town on the banks of the River Mersey in England. A lifelong doodler, his love of drawing is inspired by a childhood of Saturday morning cartoons, den-building adventures, and an endless supply of crayons. Working as a full-time illustrator for the last ten years, Lee has enjoyed working on a wide range of projects from illustrating picture books, board games, and billboards. He loves to bring humor and lots of character to his illustrations. When he hasn’t got a pencil in hand, he can be found fossil hunting, feeding hedgehogs, or doing flying kicks.
