Children’s author and illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka recently visited Holland Hall as part of the Sue T. Lawson Visiting Illustrator/Author Program to talk about what inspired him to write and illustrate his books, including “Baghead,” “Bubble Bath Pirates,” “My Buddy Slug” and “Punk Farm.”
Krosoczka used to be a goofy kid that liked to draw. Now he is an award winning published author/illustrator with many books to his credit. His quirky characters from a boy who wears a brown bag on his head to farm animals who rock have put his work on book lists in Newsweek, USA Today, the Boston Globe and the New York Times. In 2003, Krosoczka was chosen by “Print” as one of their 20 top new visual artists under 30.
