About me


Hello, my name is Yorgos Sgouros and I am a freelance visual artist based in Athens, Greece.


I always liked to draw imaginary worlds and create my pictures using both traditional and digital media. I started illustrating professionally twenty years ago! The positive feedback I received during my first interviews at publishing houses encouraged me to work as a children books illustrator. I love illustrating and I love…children! So the decision came up pretty easily! I have illustrated over 100 books including children’s books, fairytales, fiction, nonfiction and educational books. I also create pictures for advertisements, greeting cards, flash games, web pages, t shirts, posters, magazines, stickers, caricatures, comics, storyboards and many more.


I create art because it makes me happy – hoping that this will make others happy, too! I like creating a beautiful picture, a beautiful world for children. Illustrating gives me the opportunity to express my feelings on paper.
