When author/illustrator Dylan Coburn sits down to write, he stops being an adult. Looking at the world in a lateral way, and tackling life in the moment is exactly the place he wants to be when conjuring up tall tales for children. The rhythm of life intrigues him and greatly influences his wordplay, which he believes keeps children reading his books. His goal is to get the child into the groove of the story - the flow of the words, the whimsy of the pictures, and stay firmly inside the world until the book ends.
An award-winning Animation Professional, Illustrator, and Storyboard Artist - Dylan loves most of all to Write, from his home studio in Auckland, New Zealand or his office in Los Angeles, California. His biggest inspiration is his young son, Zachary - who is living proof that happiness comes from living in the moment.
Dylan illustrated the first three books in the picture book series, THE ELITE TEAM, about young wrestlers, published by Trism Books.
