Born and raised in New York, Louie Chin is an illustrator who creates commercial and editorial content. His first picture book, Don't Ask a Dinosaur, was published by POW! Kids Books in 2018. Working with both traditional and modern media, such as watercolor, gouache, and digital-art software, his biggest influences and inspirations come from comics, movies, and his daily observations of life in NYC. He has always been an animal-lover, and there is one family pet in particular from which he drew inspiration for Bodega Cat: a spirited and feisty orange tabby cat named Simba. His favorite bodega order is coffee and an egg and sausage sandwich on a toasted roll. Bodega Cat is the first book that he both wrote and illustrated. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
