Rodney Rigby is a self-taught artist living and working in the UK. Following several group shows in the 1980s he began illustrating for such clients as GQ, Observer Magazine and Orchard Books. His first children's book, There's A Building On Sixth Avenue was published by Hyperion, New York and was followed by Hello, This Is Your Penguin Speaking and The Night The Moon Fell Asleep. He illustrated Paul Muldoon's The Last Thesaurus before deciding to concentrate more on his painting and assemblage pieces. Rodney's work has since featured in many galleries and collections in the UK and US.
