About the Illustrator

BOBBY HAMMER CREATED THE ORIGINAL AUDIE COVER ART! A native of the midwest, Bobby Hammer made the transition from crayons and cardboard to pastels and easles during middle school. Enocuraged by his parents, he trained in portraiture under a local artist for four years. An avid reader himself, Bobby spent most of his childhood in awe of the work that accompanied some of his favorite stories; he is both proud and excited to describe Volume 1 of The Angel Archives as the first cover art that he executed personally. Mr. Hammer intends to graduate in the spring of 2013 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Chemistry (minor in French language). When he isn't covered in pastel and charcaol, he can typically be found nose-deep in a text book, with a #2 pencil behind his ear. Between you and him: from time to time, he still colors with crayons.
