  BIO  
 
John Nez has illustrated over 80 books for children in a wide range of styles.

I draw mostly in a whimsical style with the goal of conveying lots of feeling in my pictures... happy, sad, sneaky, mad, hopeful, afraid... whatever.

Mostly I work in traditional mediums of acrylics, watercolors, pencils and inks. I also work in the digital mediums of Photoshop and Illustrator, which greatly expand the illustrator's toolbox. The combination of traditional and digital mediums allows for amazing new possiblities... and lots of fun.

Every book starts simple... with a great idea and a pencil.

I have a degree in English and also studied illustration at the Parsons School of Design in New York City with Maurice Sendak, among other wonderful teachers. I've done many book projects with Mercer Mayer and Rosemary Wells, as a ghost illustrator.
