Wallace West Illustration
Apart from an extremely lazy beagle-mix named Sammy Joe, my influences span the spectrum from Quentin Blake to Edith Head. With a measured mix of ink, gouache, honesty, humor (both dark and light) and a little irreverence, my work is created to attract and encourage both young readers and their parental counterparts.

I have studied with The School of Visual Arts in New York City and Parsons School of Design in Paris and am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and The Children's Book Illustrators Group (CBIG).
