NANCY LEMON has been illustrating since she fell in love with newspaper comics at the tender age of five. After a steady diet of Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, The Far Side and Garfield (to name a few), she began creating her own characters and has never been able to quit. She combines pencil, watercolor, gouache, ink, and digital magic to create her nostalgic artwork. Nancy graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Clemson University and finished her post graduate work in Illustration at the Portfolio Center of Atlanta. She now lives and draws by the ocean in James Island, SC with her husband, daughter, and two big, goofy dogs.

Nancy’s Bookshelf:

HOW TO MAKE A MOUNTAIN IN 9 EASY STEPS
by Amy Huntington
illustrated by Nancy Lemon
(Chronicle, 2021)

WHAT JOHN MARCO SAW
by Annie Barrows
illustrated by Nancy Lemon
(Chronicle, 2019)
“The cartoon illustrations playfully convey information that goes beyond the text and cleverly zoom in when John Marco is contemplating the small things, thus amplifying his world . . . A sweet reminder to slow down and notice the world around us.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[A] magical portrayal of one of those strange and giddy moments that makes an indelible impression on one’s imagination. Best of all, it succeeds in proving that John Marco (and what he notices) is worth everyone’s attention.”—Publishers Weekly

 

EMMA AND MUSE
by Nancy Lemon
(Albert Whitman, 2018)
“Charming illustrations in watercolor with pen and ink use white space effectively and provide glimpses of different artistic styles and ways of creating art . . . . Teachers will find lots of uses for this story as an inspiration for classroom art projects. Subtly educational and definitely amusing. “—Kirkus Reviews
