Visual Development Artist & Character Designer
Children's Book Author & Illustrator
Bassel Elkadi has been drawing ever since he could hold a pencil. Growing up, his favourite thing to do was to look at the bright illustrations in children’s books and imagine illustrating his own stories.
While he acquired his Doctorate in Civil Engineering, Bassel continued to improve his drawing skills with several fine art courses. Besides working as a research assistant during his engineering studies, he created several character designs and visual development projects. He also illustrated many children’s books for other authors.
After his daughter Sofia was born, Bassel renewed his determination to achieve his childhood dream by writing and illustrating his own children’s books.
