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.
