Patty Bowman is a detail-obsessed illustrator and children’s author with a droll sense of humour. Often compared to Edward Gorey, Patty likes to work in traditional pen-and-ink, and water colours. These mediums give her illustrations a cosy, homemade, feel. She draws inspiration from her youth in 80s New England and from the “heartache and hilarity of it all”.
