About the Author

Fueled by the love he felt for his children, drawing, and the dictionary, Victor Stabin began combing through the pages of the Oxford English, Merriam Webster, and Chambers Concise in search of alliterative couplets that would work well with illustrative narratives. The result is a whimsical revue of 26 characters known as Daedal Doodle.

Leonard Lopate of WNYC radio deemed the book “A visual stunner with thoughtful definitions” and Wharton Professor, Jeremy Siegel, stated, “Looking at the book reminds me of the first time I saw the work of M.C. Escher.”

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Victor Stabin’s work is inspired by many facets of his own life including his family, an interest in the connection between man and nature, water and the water’s edge, doodling, 20th Century Surrealists, the 19th Century Japanese watercolor print artists, Advertising Art, Graphic Arts and Modern Art of the 20th Century, the spirit of the Italian Renaissance, and the fragility of life.

His illustrations have appeared in publications like TimeNewsweek, and Rolling Stone. His credits also include nine postage stamps commissioned by the US Postal service, a mural for RCA/BMG’s headquarters, the cover of the KISS album, “Unmasked”, most recently he has had four pieces installed at radio station WNYC.
