Leo Dillon, March 2, 1933 - May 26, 2012

With Diane Dillon (née Sorber), collaborator throughout their professional careers and adult lives.

Two down, from their Caldecott-winning beginning reader's book Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears: an owl cradles her accidentally-killed owlet near their nest.

...the last (still) image here is for Dying Inside, written (and read) by Robert Silverberg, Caedmon Records 1979

Particularly no fun when we go in clumps, or at least the announcements come to the rest of us within hours or even minutes of the last.

Images like the mask behind the owls were very influential on my style.

I'll buy it. That might just be the Sun (I'll have to look at the film again, or seek out the book to make sure).
