Loss of Legend: Leo Dillon

Leo Dillon: 3.2.1933-5.26.2012

I knew what I had before it was gone. Leo Dillon and his wife Diane are not only one of the most successful illustrator partnerships but also among the most influential. I never knew Leo Dillon personally, but his work has guided mine and inspired countless others by striving for beauty and perfection in the world of picture book illustration. And will continue to uplift the hearts of children, and the child in our hearts, all over the world. Thank you Leo.

    • It will be interesting to see how Diane evolves her illustration art on her own after what, 50 years of working together with Leo. The couple once collaborated with their son Lee on Pish, Posh, Heironymus Bosch (sp?).
