If you want to read a really detailed bio, check out this interview with Julie Danielson, of the amazingest awesomest blog, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. And take the time to read about all the very interesting authors and illustrators featured there, as well. Very motivationall. Envy-inspiring, too, though I try hard to keep off of that path.
You might also check out the Guardian’s detailed break-down of my book El Deafo here.
If you need some information for a school project, or so that you’ll have something decent to say about me if I’m coming to visit your school or library, try this out:
Cece Bell lives in an old church in Virginia and works in a new-ish barn right next door. She grew up in Salem, Viriginia and drank a lot of limeades at the Brooks-Byrd Pharmacy downtown. She met her husband, writer Tom Angleberger, at the College of William and Mary, where they were both art majors. Cece went on to get a graduate degree in illustration and design at Kent State University. She has worked as a freelance illustrator for all kinds of nutty projects, but is now a full-time author and illustrator. Her books include the Newbery Honor and Eisner-winning graphic novel El Deafo, the Geisel Honor-winning Rabbit & Robot, I Yam a Donkey, Bee-Wigged, Itty Bitty, and the Sock Monkey series. She has also created books with Tom, including Crankee Doodle and the Inspector Flytrap series.
