About the author:
The only class Ian Sands ever failed while attending the School of Visual Arts in NYC was Art Education. That might not seem surprising until you realize Ian has spent the last 20 years teaching visual arts.
After leaving NYC (population 8 million) in 1989, Ian began his teaching career at Roseboro-Salemburg Middle School in Roseboro, NC (population 1,200). Since then Ian has taught every grade from kindergarten through technical college. He currently teaches visual arts, computer art and animation, and art history at Apex High School in NC.
Ian's professional experience extends beyond the classroom. He possesses an extensive knowledge of computer graphic and web design software, having created websites and GUI interfaces for such companies as Nortel Networks, CSC, and BASF.
A born teacher, Ian shares this knowledge. He has presented at events such as the SCBWI-NC fall conference and has written several articles about web strategies and marketing for the SCBWI-NC publication, the Pen & Palette.
Between the writing, painting and illustrating, Ian keeps busy either playing goalie for his ice hockey team or making banana and chocolate chip pancakes for his wife with his three children.

A Pop Expressionist Guide To Newimals
When two different kinds of animals, which are very closely related, create a new life, the baby animal is called a hybrid. For example, if a zebra and a horse have a foal, the yearling is a hybrid called a zorse.
Zorse is a cool name. Hybrid however, is a boring name that sounds more like a way to create electricity by pouring water through a turbine than it does a combination of two living creatures. From now on, I'm going to refer to hybrids as newimals.
Though some are rare, all of the newimals in this book are real.
