Ignatz Award winner Jeffrey Brown began his career with the self-published “Clumsy.” He earned an MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago School as a painter, but he soon found his niche in drawing comics. He is the author-illustrator of “Star Wars: Jedi Academy No. 2: Return of the Padawan” (Scholastic), the much-anticipated sequel to the New York Times best-seller “Star Wars: Jedi Academy.” Brown also wrote and illustrated "Darth Vader and Son" in 2012, and its sequel "Vader's Little Princess" in 2013, among many other titles.
