Henry Cole is a self-taught artist who grew up on a dairy farm in Virginia. He enjoyed art as a child and would make birthday cards for friends and family. He never went to school for art, but his mother was an illustrator who gave him advice. Cole most often uses a cartoon-like style with vivid colors. Before becoming an author/illustrator he was a science teacher for 15 years.
