Patrick Corrigan was born on a crisp, cold December day in a small, cloudy town in Cheshire, England. With a passion for precision as a child, he grew up patiently drawing and designing arts and crafts. 

This took him to study ceramics at University, train as an art teacher and eventually become an Art Director at a busy design studio where he worked for nearly 10 years. Whilst there he honed his skills working on well over 500 educational and picture books for children as well as animations and branding.

Now based in Hammersmith, West London – where he lives with his newspaper editor wife, Dulcie, and their fat cat Forbes – Patrick uses Photoshop, Illustrator and sometimes even real art equipment to create his work. He specialises in illustrating picture books for younger readers and draws best when listening to his vast collection of vinyl that he attempts to hide from his wife. 
Patrick is represented by Astound US Inc, prints of his work are available here. Please drop him an email with any illustration, design, art direction or animation enquiries.
