Participating artists include Tom Lichtenheld and Erika Swanson.
Tom Lichtenheld is a children’s book author and illustrator. He doodled his way through school, then worked as a sign painter, set designer, printer and advertising art director. After a successful career in advertising, he gradually made the switch to creating children’s books. Tom’s books – several of which are New York Times Best Sellers -- are acclaimed for their humor, expressive characters, and rich – sometimes hidden – detail. He’s known for creating books that appeal to children and adults alike, and his wide portfolio of books offers something for every age. Tom has collaborated with several authors including numerous books with Beth Ferry, the late Amy Krouse Rosenthal, and Sherri Duskey Rinker; as well as writing and illustrating his own creations. “The Umbrella Book,” his newest with Beth Ferry, will be released in the spring of 2023.
Erika Swanson is an award-winning illustrator, comic artist, animator, and the creator of Bellossoms, a series about enchanted flowers blooming in new places. Watch her new animated show, Bellossoms: Full Bloom, now streaming on YouTube!
