Mesa is a children’s book author and illustrator by night. By day, she is a scientific and medical illustrator, animator, and infographic designer. She got her start in illustration working on archaeological sites drawing artifacts and reconstructing buildings, and from there she moved into scientific illustration, infographics, and medial illustration, earning an M.A. in Medical Art from the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine at Johns Hopkins Medical School. She is passionate about the details of science and nature, travel, exploration, and the meetings of minds and cultures and is a real big research nerd. Her favorite thing is taking big and complicated ideas and making them easy to understand. She currently lives in Fiji with her husband and two kids, though she has called many places home.

Lisa Bentley is an illustrator and author of picture books. As a child she was obsessed with reading and would always choose books that invited her in with an exciting book jacket or beautiful illustrations.  She has a vivid imagination and has, for as long as she can remember, used this to write her own stories and illustrate them. As soon as she was able, Lisa picked up a pencil and began to draw and she’s hardly put one down since.
