Who is Shannon Marsolais?
Shannon Marsolais is a sophomore illustration major at Parsons School of Design. She has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil, covering anything from the back of her homework to her bedroom walls in drawings. It’s no surprise she wanted to have a career in the arts!
Since she was little, Marsolais has always spent her summers at camp. In fact, Scuba Steve used to be her swim instructor! She understands the unique, thrilling antics that can only happen at camp, and aims to incorporate that into her illustrations.
Marsolais has been working as the sole illustrator on the Tales of Scuba Steve series since she was in high school. She hopes to continue pursuing children’s book illustration after finishing school, and is beyond grateful to continue bringing Ben’s summer adventures to life.
She hopes you enjoy reading the series as much as she enjoys illustrating it!
