About the illustrator

Chad Cameron's earliest work was rendered in Crayola with a crude overhand technique on his bedroom walls. This expressionist body of work came to include drawings on other clean surfaces, his little brother, and a fair attempt at the family cat. This didn't go over well with the critics. Chad has produced a variety of illustrations for print and multimedia. His published children's books include Witchy's Turned-Around House; George Hogglesberry, Grade School Alien; Pink Magic; and A Day With No Crayons. Chad's work has been featured in shows in San Francisco, New York, Washington, DC, and Atlanta as well as part of a traveling show in Australia and South America
