Today we have another husband and wife team. This time both our mystery authors Caldecott winning illustrators of children’s books as well.
40. What child wouldn’t want to grow up in a household filled with exotic animals like today’s mystery illustrator? When the husband had time as a boy, he liked to draw the animals and dream of going to Africa. His teachers noticed his talent and encouraged him to go to art college. He financed his education in a unique way, as a professional wrestler. Eventually he finished his degree and became an award-winning illustrator and author of children’s books. Do you know who this wrestling illustrator is?
41. The wife grew up in Pennsylvania. As a child, she says she was always drawing and she knew she wanted to be an artist. She even went against her parents wishes by going to an art school for college. What she didn’t know was that she would become a prize-winning illustrator and author of children’s books. It was a good thing she went to art school, because that’s how she met her husband, who was a recent graduate.
If you know this team, leave a comment and let us know.
