Dion Beasley lives in Tennant Creek and is well known across the Territory as the artist behind the much loved T-shirt brand, Cheeky Dogs. Dion’s formal art career started in 2006 when the first Cheeky Dogs T-shirt line was launched. Since then, his reputation as an accomplished visual artist has grown from strength to strength. Dion’s talents are particularly remarkable given he has muscular dystrophy and is profoundly deaf.

Johanna Bell lives in Darwin with her partner, daughter and a backyard full of green tree frogs. Her writing career got off to a bumpy start when she was so busy composing a story in her head that she accidentally drove into the back of a taxi. It was while driving on a sandy +caaghjkstretch of road outside Alice Springs that the beginnings of the Cheeky Dog books took shape. Working with Dion has changed the way Johanna sees the world and tells stories.
