Eric BeddowsEric Beddows is the nom de plume of Ken Eric Nutt (born November 29, 1951), a Canadian artist and award-winning illustrator of children's books.
He was born in Woodstock, Ontario and studied fine arts at York University from 1970 to 1972. He moved to Stratford, Ontario and worked various jobs at a gallery there. He illustrated Tim Wynne-Jones's 1983 book ''Zoom at Sea'' which won the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award, the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Award and the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire (IODE) Toronto Award for best children's book. He worked with Wynne-Jones on two more books in the same series: ''Zoom Away'' (1985), which won the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award, and ''Zoom Upstream'' (1992), which was a finalist for the Governor General's Award for English-language children's illustration.
His pseudonym combines his middle name with his mother's maiden name. He has used it for his illustrative work since 1986 to distinguish it from his work as an artist.
His art has been shown at Gallery Stratford, the Woodstock Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Windsor. Provided by Wikipedia
