ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR—–Amber Calderon is an artist pursuing a double major in Studio Art and Anthropology from DePauw University, and will be graduating this coming May. Amber has found a deep fondness for drawing and painting, and illustrating has become a big part of her studio practice. Much of her interest in making art is rooted in replicating, understanding, and manipulating the world around her through fantastical representations of reality. For the All About… series Amber is interested in showing the real reality of the lives of whom she illustrates in order to honor their memory and legendary accomplishments.
