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!
