Episode 097 - Tony and Angela DiTerlizzi

Illustrator and author Tony Diterlizzi got his start drawing for Dungeons & Dragons but soon began "worldbuilding" though his books that include Jimmy Zangwow's Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, The Spider and Fly and with writer Holly Black The Spiderwick Chronicles to name only a few of his wonderful books.

Angela has worked as a make-up artist in film and TV including Saturday Night Live and MTV and musicians including Dave Matthews Band, Duran Duran and Depeche Mode and is the author of several award winning children's books that include Say What, Some Bugs and Baby Love.

They are both amazing.
