About the Author
French Canadian Tommy Doyle got into illustration before he could even walk. Through watching lots of cartoons on Saturday mornings, drawing became an all-consuming passion. Later in life, Tommy was introduced to a vast range of mediums, including snow sculpting, but his dislike of the cold stopped him from pursuing a career in this field. After studying graphic design in Quebec City, he moved to Montreal to become a graphic designer and illustrator.
Seven years on, Tommy relocated in Melbourne.
Leon the Raccoon is his first collaboration with Auzou Publishing.
