Roman Yasiejko went from doodling as a child to drawing and designing buildings as an adult. He's an architect who lives in upstate New York with his wife, Rosemarie (and their stealthy cat, Misty). Together they have two adult sons and two young grandchildren to whom he loves reading stories. Gustavo is a visual artist. He was born in Brasilia, Brazil, and currently lives in Curitiba. He graduated from UTFPR (Federal Technological University of Parana) and the Savannah College of Art and Design, in the United States. Gustavo chose to produce each of the illustrations for this project with techniques of acrylic paint and gouache on paper, in order to respect the organicity of each brush stroke.
