About the author (2006)

Matt Phillips has been doodling since he could hold his dad's fountain pen without poking himself. He's been happily drawing ever since. Sometimes he stops to play the mandolin or banjo or squeak away on the fiddle. His doodles can be found in books, magazines, malls, greeting cards, websites, advertisements, and little wadded up piles all around his drawing table. He lives and works in White, Georgia.
