I illustrate and write children's books and work on commercial illustration and design. My latest book is 'All Star Cheerleaders - Tick Tock, Taylor' by Anastasia Suen from Kane and Miller Publishing, a series of 4. You can find me scribbling away in Maine, USA.
Russ likes to draw and paint colorful pictures while wearing Chuck Taylors. Growing up in the South, he was always drawing or pulling weeds in the garden. Today he draws on his adventures (and misadventures) to create his world. When not in front of his drawing board, he is usually driving his wife crazy with his banjo playing or teaching his four cats to sing Bohemian Rhapsody.
Fred usually gets along with kids better than grown-ups because so many adults have forgotten how to make believe. He is enamored with illustration and the art of storytelling, and splits his time between children's books and a day job in the advertising industry.
Sheralyn lives for the ethereal moments that she experiences in this great pool of life as much as the whimsical moments she experiences in the kiddie pool of her imagination. In a perfect world, she would spend her days watching squirrels. If she could come back in another life, she would probably BE a squirrel.
A chronic doodler since childhood but formerly a writer by trade, Debbie was startled into children's book illustration through the SCBWI. Creepycute monsters intrigue her. Her first picture book: I'M BORED by Michael Ian Black (Simon & Schuster, 2012). She is being mentored by Cecilia Yung of Penguin USA, and is represented by Ginger Knowlton of Curtis Brown Ltd.
I’ve spent a lifetime escaping through story, crafting both words and pictures. Some of my favorites include robots, cats, waffles, and mustaches. I’m currently developing several picture books for kids, with the incredible help of my agent, Rubin Pfeffer, of East West Literary.
