Mike Lowery

Mike Lowery’s illustrations have appeared in everything from greeting cards to children’s books—and the bestselling Workman’s Kid’s Awesome Activity Calendars.

Doodle Adventures is the first series he has both written and illustrated. Called “clever” and “engaging” by Booklist, the Doodle Adventures series stars the grumpy Carl the Duck and his adventures around town and in outer space. Readers are encouraged to write and draw in the books, making themselves part of the adventure! The third book in the series, Doodle Adventures: The Rise of the Rusty Robo-Cat!, will be published in the summer of 2017.

Mike is the illustrator of the popular Gingerbread Man series with Laura Murray (The Gingerbread Man Loose in The School, The Gingerbread Man Loose at The Zoo), the non-fiction Junior Genius Guides written by Ken Jennings, and two books with Rebecca Kai Dotlich - All Aboard! and What Can a Crane Pick Up?.

Mike shares daily sketches on Instagram @mikelowerystudio and is the co-founder of Paper Ghost Studio in Atlanta, Georgia, where he lives with his wife and daughter.
