LeUyen Pham–What Was on Her . . .

I’m thrilled—absolutely THRILLED—to introduce today’s guest, the completely wonderful, completely talented LeUyen Pham!

Uyen was the first ever female layout artist at DreamWorks Animation. Since leaving there 14 years ago, she has illustrated nearly 70 books, ranging from board books to chapter books to graphic novels. She has collaborated with Charlotte Zolotow, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Kathi Appelt, and actress Julianne Moore. Her self-authored titles include Big Sister Little Sister, All the Things I Love About You, No Such Thing As Little, and A Piece of Cake. This year alone, Uyen is scheduled to release nine books, among which are the latest installments of the Alvin Ho series and my personal favorite, The Princess in Black, a collaboration between Uyen and Shannon & Dean Hale.

Uyen lives in San Francisco with her artist husband, Alex Puvilland, and two sons. As for What Was on LeUyen Pham’s drawing table, nightstand, mind & more, scroll down for our most visually tantalizing guest post ever!

  1. Wow! What a great piece! Did she draw all that for you? You are a blogging rock star! I do have a question, though. Is it the lamp she can’t get rid of, or the ex she can’t get rid of (like he keeps popping back into her life)?

  2. The graphic renditions with their acribic comments are both powerful and engaging, and literally draw you into the pictures – straight into Uyen’s own world (and mind…). Brilliant and hilarious!
