Well fancy meeting her here.

Checking this book in the other day, I thought I recognized the lady on the cover...or, at least, the style of the artist who drew here. Flipping through the pages, I became even more convinced that I knew who drew the lady on the cover, and all the people (and plants and animals) that appear in the illustrations throughout the book.

The "Illustrations By" credit on the title page confirmed it: This artist wasn't just someone who drew an awful lot like Colleen Coover, it was Colleen Coover.

So should you find yourself wanting to see more Coover art, and your needs haven't been entirely met by all of her comics output (Bandette being maybe the best place to start) or all of that available on her website, you can always check out The Anxious Gardener's Book of Answers by Teri Dunn Chace for tons of black and white Coover drawings of various gardeners in the act of gardening.
