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.
