Patrick Wirbeleit

Patrick Wirbeleit is an illustrator and author living in the countryside just outside Hamburg, Germany.


He is quite tall and has nearly seventy children’s books and comics under his belt. Some have been translated into other languages, some have won awards.

However he finds people are generally more impressed when he touches the ceiling without even standing on tiptoes.


Patrick created the annual Carl-Buch-Preis, for the best illustrated children`s book cover published in Germany.

Mr. Wirbeleit spends his days building a unique relationship with deadlines and looking for the next cup of tea. He believes this helps his relationship with deadlines become more meaningful.
