Peek: "In this five-minute mini-documentary, filmed in the New York home and studio of Leo and Diane Dillon, they talk about how they met at art school and collaborate on all their illustrations, share their thoughts on the message and imagery of Earth Mother, and detail the way in which they illustrate books to capture and reflect diverse cultures."
