Representing the Finest Illustrators in the Children’s Artwork Market

About Robert Squier


I am an artist with a dark secret. At the age of four, I destroyed Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are (Harper Row 1963).

I scribbled all over Max and the Wild Things with my crayons. Then guilt set in. I thought I’d wrecked the world’s only copy of my favorite book. I resolved to become an artist so I could one day replace the book I had ruined.

True story.

Fortunately, my family was used to eccentric artsy types. My grandfather, Donald G. Squier, was a professional portrait painter. I set to work and spent most of my childhood drawing monsters, aliens, and prehistoric beasts.

Soon I started telling stories with my drawings. I wrote comic strips and self-published comic books. In college, my contributions to the campus paper were notorious and led to my first illustration job.

Now as an adult I spend my time drawing monsters, aliens and prehistoric beasts (among other things). So I guess not much has changed, except I have a wife, a dog and a mortgage.

My illustrations have appeared in thirty-one published books for children.  I hope that, somewhere, a kid has scribbled all over one of them.
