Biography of Philippe Goossens, illustrator of the children's picture books "Pirate John-Wolf" and "Superhero School" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.


Philippe Goossens

Philippe Goossens (Brussels, 1963) as a child devoured all The Adventures of Tintin. With his passion for drawing it didn’t come as a surprise that he followed illustration classes at the Saint Luc Institute.

When he got his diploma, he tasted a little of everything that has to do with drawing and graphics (advertisements, animated movies…) but soon he realized he wanted to put his talents in use solely for children’s’ picture books. He has illustrated numerous books already.
