Rick Chrustowski grew up in Indiana and graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He loves to draw from nature, and spent lots of time studying ladybugs in the meadow near his farm in River Falls, Wisconsin while he was creating the illustrations for Bright Beetle. He even bought some praying mantis eggs and hatched them in his garden. Bright Beetle is his first picture book.
