Five Fast Facts About Don Tate



“I was an extremely creative child. I have been drawing, painting, building, and making things as long as I can remember.”

“Although I didn't have many children's books as a child, my favorite was Maurice Sendak's WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. I loved the fine detail of the cross-hatched style. The book scared me, but entertained me at the same time. I'd like to do a book like that someday.”

He’s created graphics and illustrations for newspapers in Des Moines, Iowa and Austin, Texas.

“I have never been and probably never will be a sports person. I did play little league baseball for a few years as a child and hated every second of it.”

He’s originally from Iowa but now he lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and son.
