About the Illustrators

Leo Dillon, the brilliant young black designer, works in partnership with his equally gifted wife Diane. They met as students at the Parsons School of Design in New York and continued their studies at the American Institute of Graphic Arts and the School of Visual Arts, where Mr. Dillon presently spends part of his week teaching. The Dillons have set up their own studio in a converted brownstone in the Cobble Hill district of Brooklyn which also provides commodious living space for themselves and their five-year-old son Lee. Here they work on commissions, largely from the publishing field, consistently producing work of outstanding quality. Their work has appeared regularly in the Society of Illustrators Show and in the S.l.S. ANNUAL and, was recently shown at the Communications Forum for Black Artists.
