Posts by David Huyck

David is a picture book maker, cartoonist, animator and designer. Raised on a steady diet of Muppets, cartoons, comic strips and piles and piles of books to read — along with a lot of "time to go outside, David!" — he has spent his entire life preparing for this role. His previous online exploits include regular contributions to the now-retired Drawn! illustration blog. David always has a pocketful of granola bars to keep his ravenous children at bay, and a pencil at the ready to capture the aftermath. You can find his books at your favorite bookstore, or you can find him working on his next project in his Minnesota-based studio.
