Andrew DeGraff is a freelance illustrator and artist living and working in Maine. Andrew was born in Albany, NY and spent his little league years upstate. He graduated from Pratt Institute’s Communications Design program with a focus in Illustration in 2001, and he returned to Pratt to teach illustration from 2009 – 2014. He recently published his first book, Plotted: A Literary Atlas from Zest Books.

DeGraff approaches each story differently and crafts maps that truly tell stories. It’s not always easy to paint the mental picture you want if the narrative is complex, or if the writer has built a world that is incomprehensible in scope. Thanks to his talent, now you have a new way to envision some of your favorite fictional places.
