Leo Dillon 1933-2012
Another incredible illustrator has left us. Leo Dillon was a master.
To find out more about him visit Tor here.
Some of my favorites of his and Diane Dillon's work are the covers for the A Wrinkle in Time series. I wanted to read the book because of the Illustration. The story and illustrations for Pish Posh Said Hieronymus Bosch is also delightful. Everything he did was magic.
To add to his skill many of my students interviewed the Dillons for various projects and they all reported how kind and generous he is. I am grateful for the impact he had on me and many of my students.
