Biographical / Historical
Widely known for illustrating Donald Elliott’s books Alligators and Music, Frogs and the Ballet, and Lambs’ Tales from Great Operas, Arrowood drew caricatures with humor and poignancy that encouraged readers to reconsider their impressions of the performing arts. He also illustrated Witch, Witch!, edited in 1975 by Richard Shaw, and Young Brer Rabbit, written with Jaqueline Weiss in 1985.
In addition to his performing and illustrating, for 21 years he taught art history, music appreciation, and flute at Garrison Forest School in Owings Mills, Maryland. He also taught for a year in the American School outside Turin, Italy.
