About the Author
Though they live on opposite coasts, illustrators Peter and Maria Hoey work closely together. Trading drawings back and forth over the internet from their studios in Northern California and Brooklyn, the brother and sister team produces drawings for clients like The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Magazine. In addition to illustration, the Hoeys began writing and drawing comics in Blab! Magazine in the late 1990s, then launched their self-published comic book series, Coin-Op, in 2008.
