He worked as a commercial illustrator and developed a sophisticated pen-and-ink style that seemed perfectly suited for children's books. He later split his time between London and the United States, contributing to many American magazines and spending much of his time in South Wardsboro, VT.Blegvad is survived by his children, Peter and Kristoffer, as well as four grandchildren.
