Arthur Lin is an artist based in San Francisco, drawn by the storytelling of Sunday comics and various children's books. He received his master's degree in illustration in 2010 and has been drawing books ever since. As a brand-new father, he was fortunate to capture the funny interactions between his newborn and dog, which provided a lot of inspiration for this story. Although they don't always get along, they are already best buddies!
