The Annual VCLR Illustrator’s Breakfast with Steve Jenkins

Brilliant illustrator/designer/author of information books on the natural world.

From the tiniest to the largest creatures, to renderings in real size and of what we cannot see under the skin, Jenkins illustrates creatures large and small using cut paper as his medium. Beetles, boas, bugs, bears, bones, teeth, eyes, ears, curious facts and amazing images—that’s what readers find in books created by Steve Jenkins.
