Barry Gott

BARRY GOTT has been drawing and creating his entire life. His first ABC book was drawn on the backs of paint can labels from his dad’s paint factory. Skipping the awkward years, Barry got a Bachelor of Fine Art from Bowling Green State University–and upgraded from paint can labels to beige computers. He was a writer and artist on staff at American Greetings before launching into the pajama-friendly world of full-time freelancing. For the last 16 years he’s been creating children’s books, humorous greeting cards, and various other art bits in his attic studio in Cleveland, Ohio.

CLIENTS:  Lerner Books, Dutton Books, HarperCollins, Random House, Scholastic, Harcourt, Albert Whitman & Co., Time Warner, Penguin Putnam, Kane Press, Recycled Paper Greetings, American Greetings, and plenty more.

So excited about this beautiful book from @pearlperon Pear Law & Christina Matula! 🌝 🌙 #Repost ・・・ Pearl writes— HAPPY MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL! Tonight will be the night when the moon shines the brightest and the fullest in the whole year! Spare a minute or two and soak up some good vibes with your loved ones. And play with cute lanterns! And eat some mooncakes! 🌝🏮 - Speaking of... many moons ago (pun intended), I illustrated a picture book about the festival, and it’s now properly published this year! It’s called The Shadow in the Moon! Check it out if you’re interested to find out more about the mythos. Many thanks to @christinamatula for picking me out from a pool of illustrators; to @bookmarkliterary for looking after me; and to @charlesbridgepublishing for making it all happen. #illustration #kidlit #kidlitart #midautumnfestival #shadowinthemoon
