William Joyce paints and writes most of the time. He has produced two animated television shows based on his books: `Rolie Polie Olie' and `George Shrinks'. He also produced and designed the animated feature film `Robots'. At the start of his painting career, he found that gallery owners weren't interested in the images that made him happy - suburbab backyards filled with floating family members, flying saucers and baseball-playing dinosaurs. `Then I backed into the world of children's picture books. I'd found paradise!'
William Joyce lives with his wife and two children in Louisiana, USA.
