Growing up in Cincinnati, Caldecott Honor-winning and New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Jon J Muth drew and drew and drew, and painted. He had his first one-man exhibit when he was just 18 years old. In addition to his award-winning picture books for Scholastic Press, he is also internationally renowned for his comic books and graphic novels. "When I am painting in the right state of mind, my hand disappears, the brush disappears, the paint stops being paint, and all that exists is the thing that is becoming. I am all of those things at one time," Muth says. "This happens naturally when every effort is concentrated on the moment and letting go of expectations. This doesn't mean anything goes' - often I will do an image over and over until it offers what that precise moment in the story needs. It is a balance of being open to all possibilities and also discovering what is necessary." Jon J Muth currently lives in upstate New York with his wife and four children.
