alex eben meyer was born and raised in philadelphia, pa and graduated from washington university in st louis, mo. he has been illustrating for bunches of years, and has worked with a wide range of editorial, book, and advertising clients on projects big and small.

alex’s work is bright, colorful, and fun, often featuring inanimate objects doing animate things. his current dream project is to have his artwork on a blimp. his other dream job is working with you! (especially, if you happen to be a blimp.)

his first two children’s books have recently come out, hero vs. villain and creature vs. teacher.






when not illustrating, alex can be found playing street hockey and discussing the socio-political implications behind the consumption of the cake donut. he lives in greenpoint, brooklyn with his wife, daughter, and cat.
