Marc Rosenthalarc was born in New York City but was promptly whisked away to Turkey, where he spent the first two years of his life eating yoghurt.

Much later, he attended Princeton University where he received a BA in Architecture; then an MFA in painting from SUNY New Paltz.

He worked as a graphic designer in Milton Glaser’s New York studio, before seeking refuge in illustration. At Glaser’s studio, he met his wife and sometime collaborator, designer, Eileen Rosenthal. They have worked together on several design projects, but, more recently, they have been having lots of fun making children’s books together.

Marc's illustration work can be seen regularly in The New York Times, The New Yorker, and many other national and international publications too numerous and obscure to mention.

Marc has both written and illustrated Phooey! (HarperCollins, 2007), and Archie and the Pirates (HarperCollins, 2009). He has also illustrated many other children's books, including: Dig! by Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha (Silver Whistle); First, Second by Daniil Kharms (FSG); The Absentminded Fellow by Samuel Marshak (FSG); The Straight Line Wonder by Mem Fox (Mondo Publishing); and The Runaway Beard by David Schiller (Workman).

Recently, he has illustrated three of his wife’s books: I Must Have Bobo!, I’ll Save You, Bobo!, and Bobo The Sailor Man (Atheneum), as well as Mogie, The Heart of The House, by Kathi Appelt (Simon & Schuster). His latest project is the New York Times bestselling parody picture book A Child's First Book of Trump, by Michael Ian Black (Simon & Schuster).

Marc lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Eileen, and Pete the cat.
