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.

My heart pours out to the Californians affected by the wildfires. My thoughts are with those who have lost & will continue to lose in the wake of these fires. Praying for your safety. Art by Diana Toledano @dianatoledano ・・・ Diana writes: Right now in Northern California we cannot see the sun because of the haze and ashes... Wishing everyone (especially politicians) would take responsibility and acknowledge what scientists have been saying for a long time: this is one of the consequences of CLIMATE CHANGE. Lies and denial are not the proper course of action. • What you do, how you shop, how you drink a soda... Everything has consequences. Be mindful. Take actions that help the Earth. ❤️ And stay safe. • P.S.: Isn’t it sad that I originally did this drawing a year ago for other wild fires? ••• #WildFires #ClimateChange #ClimateChangeIsReal #CaliforniaFires #WomenWhoDraw #SaveTheEarth #DianaToledano
