Hello there,My name is Jon Seymour, and I love writing children’s books! I try to focus on writing profoundly silly things, profoundly meaningful things, or sometimes a bit of both.I am a writer/illustrator by early morning, a senior informatics analyst for a children’s hospital by day, and a full-time family man.My illustrations are relatively minimalist in style and are most often done with black ink on paper. I draw with a passion for regression, and I hope to one day re-learn how to draw as I did when I was a child. Pablo Picasso said it best:“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”My passion for writing children’s literature roots itself within my mission to be able to create physical versions of the stories that I make up with my kids. And while I aspire to be a traditionally published author, I  may [for the time being] opt for more Indie approaches to increase the turnaround time of publishing my work.I look forward to learning as much as possible from this beautiful community!Chat soon!Jon
