Linda Bleck has been creating illustrations for various applications for over 20 years. After studying graphic design at the University of Illinois, she began illustrating for a wide variety of clients in the editorial, corporate, packaging, and publishing industries. Linda wrote and illustrated a series of novelty children’s books featuring her favorite pup, Pepper. She also is the illustrator of Margaret Wise Brown’s posthumous picture book, The Moon Shines Down. Linda’s childhood experiences of growing up on a tree farm surrounded by nature have had a profound influence on her style. She is drawn to nature scenes and animal characters, in particular, and incorporates earthy colors and interesting patterns into all of her work. She collects old toys with vintage illustrations, and artifacts from her world travels for inspiration. Linda lives in Mequon, Wisconsin with her husband and two children. Clients include Target, Conde Nast, Yves Veggie Cuisine, Microsoft, New York Times, and Simon & Schuster.
