Just after Chad and his wife were just married, they visited a used office furniture store. They purchased a GIGANTIC 1960s drafting desk so he could create art at home. Now, Chad makes his children’s book illustrations from his Northern California home-studio on that massive old desk. He loves being a husband and father of four. He loves engaging stories, racquetball (game anyone?), lovely typography and dark chocolate (somewhere between 72% to 84% please). He was honored with the Mentorship Award at SCBWI LA 2018 and numerous regional portfolio awards. Chad has a BFA in Illustration from BYU (Brigham Young University) and an MFA in Visual Arts from MU (Marywood University). You can see his work at www.chadhunterstudio.com.
