Sometime earlier this year (I believe) I heard an interview with a
children's book author/illustrator.  The memory is a little fuzzy--but
here's what I think I recall:

1)  He worked primarily as an illustrator but may have done some
writing too, or worked with his wife who did writing.
2)  He grew up in Chicago.
3)  He had a complicated relationship with his father.
4)  I think (but not sure) the interview was on Fresh Air (maybe All
Things Considered?)

I'm looking for the name of the artist and a link to the interview
would be great too.

Thanks!

Hello scotru-ga,

Could the person you are looking for be Daniel Pinkwater?  He was
interviewed on Fresh Air July 13, 2004.  He grew up in Chicago, he
started as an illustrator, and his wife now illustrates his books.  He
talks about his father who he describes as a ?gangster?.
