Peter Ferguson is the extraordinary artist for this year's National Book Festival poster. He is also the illustrator of Michael Buckley's "Sisters Grimm" series among other works. Peter Ferguson set his sights on an illustration career after seeing the movie "Star Wars," deciding that he would like to draw spaceships. After graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto in 1992, he began his career as a professional illustrator, using oil as his medium of choice. Peter's brilliant ability to conceptualize clients' ideas as well as his distinctive characters gave him a running start in the editorial and book publishing markets. His clients include Marvel Comics, the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times.
