About the Illustrators

Share Button

Flapjack and Dan worked very hard with the folks who illustrated the two books in the children’s series, The Adventures of Flapjack.  Their goals were to create stories that would come to life both through word and picture.   Flapjack and Dan feel very fortunate they were able to collaborate with two very talented illustrators.  Each have their own way of drawing and so the style of their pictures are very different from book to book.

Here’s a bit about each of them.  We hope you enjoy them both!
