Jason Deeble is an American author/illustrator.[1] His first picture book, Sir Ryan's Quest, was published by Roaring Brook Press in 2009.[2] It was later chosen as the One Book, Every Young Child program of southeastern Connecticut's official selection for 2011.[2] Originally from Delaware, Deeble now lives and works in southeastern Connecticut.[3]

Style and Influences[edit]

Deeble's style draws upon such artists as Winsor McCay and Maurice Sendak creating fantastic creatures and strange environments from ordinarily familiar childhood experiences.[4] These thematic elements appear frequently in Deeble's daily webcomic, Monster Haiku.[5]
