About the Illustrator:

Matty Mitchel was born and raised in Australia but found his way to Seattle  eleven years ago and has recently moved back to Fremantle, Western Australia  with his wife, son, daughter, and dog. If Matty’s not chasing (or being chased by)  his two munchkins, he’s drawing, and if he’s not drawing, then he can be found  making something creative, and if he’s not creating something, then he is  skateboarding, and if that’s not the case, then he is probably snuggling with his  lovely wife on the couch watching TV
