Steve Light

Author of Train’s Go, SWAP!, and Shoemaker Extraodinaire, Steve Light effortlessly shows his illustrative range and fitting imagination in the world of children’s books. I happened across this artist by strange accident as I was not really expecting to find something so boldly beautiful tucked away in plain sight, surrounded by other book illustrators, at my local library.
I was immediately attracted by the strong, energetic vibe of the pen strokes, not just the use of colors. The color palate only help to enhance what the artist clearly possessed – magic.

Other things to note about this artist:

He studied at the Pratt Institute under the tutelage of Dave Passalacqua.
He dabbles in other arts such as making sculptures and toys out of wood.
He likes to use fountain pens.
