Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Oliver Jeffers is a world famous Illustrated by and author of picture books for children. International bestsellers such as How to Catch a Star, Lost and Found, and The Incredible Book Eating Boy are not only beloved by children and parents alike, but are also highly acclaimed by critics and have won numerous respected awards. Oliver Jeffers's style of illustration uses mixed media and is recognized for its subtle narrative and use of space in composition. With his captivating images, which are sometimes accompanied by simple yet pithy texts, Jeffers tells deeply incisive stories. Neither Here Nor There presents the range of his creativity in illustration, painting, photography, and collage for the first time. Although some familiar motifs from his children's books do make appearances , this book consists primarily of work and sketches that have never before been seen by a broad audience--some of which feature a very adult form of humor. Oliver Jeffers was born in Australia in 1977, grew up in Northern Ireland, and currently lives in New York. His illustrations can be found regularly in publications such as the Guardian, Newsweek, the Irish Times, and Wired or in work for clients including Sony PSP, Starbucks, and United Airlines. From figurative painting and installation to illustration and picture-book making, his work has been exhibited in New York, Dublin, London, Sydney, Washington, DC,and Belfast.
