Bio: Aleks "Petro" Petrovitch received his Bachelor's degree in Studio Art from the University of Hawaii, and his Masters of Illustration from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. An accomplished artist and illustrator, his work may be seen in San Francisco Bay area museums and galleries. He is perhaps best known for his colorful creations designed to educate children about nature, such as the best-selling and award-winning Redwood and Lighthouse Stacking Block sets produced for the Golden Gate National Parks Association, and the children's board books based on them. Co-author with David Brower on the children's book Reading the Earth, currently he is working on a new book, and on various things at the shop.
