Hello, hello!


I am an author and illustrator of children's books and I'm happiest drawing and telling stories. Screen-printing is my media of choice and I'm forever in love with it. I work by hand and like it that my illustrations exist in the real world.

I was born in sunny Rio and brought up in the Brazilian countryside. After studying art and design, I went travelling and came across the MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, from where I graduated in 2014.

Alongside my literary work, I also make contemporary pop paintings. You can check out my art at fabisantiagoart.com.

I work from my studio in London, where I live with a ginger fellow and our ever growing family of cats.

Ten fun facts about me


  • Once I had a pet bat called Syrius. 
  • I went to law school for three years. I'm glad I dropped out, because creating stories and drawing pictures don't make a good lawyer.
  • My favourite sports are skiing, kayaking and cycling. 
  • I really like odd pets and used to have over 400 giant snails. I decided to take them back to nature when they started eating our books.
  • Once I cycled down a volcano in Hawaii. It was fun.
  • We have three cats, but I keep trying to convince my partner to adopt more.
  • Speaking of cats, my daughter is also a crazy cat lady and an artist.
  • My favourite food is padrón peppers. They're a Spanish side dish and I can have a whole bucket of them in one go.
  • I love camping, if it weren't for my cats and all my art materials, I could probably live in a tent.
  • My favourite ice-cream flavour is stracciatella. Yum!
