Tom Cervenak was an illustrator and graphic designer for 40-plus years, working primarily for newspapers. These included The Taos News, the Jackson Hole News, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, and the Pacific Sun, a weekly newspaper in Marin County, California, within which The Serial was originally published.
At that time he illustrated each weekly installment for the paper and the illustrations were included when The Serial became a book.
He is currently retired and lives with his wife, Jane, in Oregon and California.
When asked to contribute a new illustration for the e-book of The Serial, he was happy to oblige.
