Diana Sudyka is a Chicago based illustrator. Early on she created screenprinted gigposters for musicians including: Andrew Bird, Neko Case, St. Vincent, The Black Keys, and The Decemberists. Currently her illustration work focuses on young adult, middle grade, and children’s books, while her personal work is inspired by her passion for natural history. She has illustrated several volumes of the award winning book series The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, and more recently Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley. When not working or with her family, she volunteers in the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History bird lab. Her instagram feed sometimes has a disproportionate amount of pictures of lichens and moss.
