Holman Wang grew up in Vancouver, BC, where he still lives with his wife and two children, ages five and four. He is a former teacher and lawyer who now creates children’s books full-time. He and his twin brother Jack are the authors and illustrators of the board books series Cozy Classics and Star Wars Epic Yarns, which abridge well-loved literary and cinematic classics in just 12 words and 12 needle-felted illustrations.

Their work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, People, The Globe and Mail, Canadian Family and Ricepaper. Holman and Jack created the Google Doogle in honour of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s 148th birthday on February 7, 2015. Holman has given presentations about their unique illustration process at SXSW, Google, Lucasfilm Letterman Campus, and Maker Faire.
